  • Description

    Rocky Trail will kick off their downhill racing season with the ultimate Championship weekend of Gravity Racing at the most popular downhill destination in NSW – Thredbo!

    Events include the Rollercoaster Gravity Enduro State Championships/powered by FLOW MTB on Saturday and the RedAss NSW/ACT Downhill State Championships on Sunday.

    Thredbo is the ideal playground for racers – the downhillers practice all Saturday and will get the chance to sneak in a Rollercoaster race. Racing will be on Sunday on the challenging and steep Thredbo downhill track.

    Both tracks will be marked and open for practice on the Friday; Thredbo MTB will offer discounted lift tickets for all racers on that day. Rocky Trail event entries will include lift tickets for the weekend; combo-entries for both events will be offered.
