Après Racing Action at Awaba with the Shimano MTB GP

To be confirmed: Skills Clinics and Social rides

Due to the date change to 11 June, which was caused by wet weather patterns and trail conditions, we are awaiting confirmation from our event partners regarding the additional activities.

Join us at the Shimano MTB GP at Awaba MTB Park and stay for a social afternoon with the Rocky Trail crew! We’re stoked to be racing at the home trails of the Hunter Mountain Bike Association and this year our Shimano MTB GP will be a punchy 4-hour race for solos and pairs, so we have some “spare time” in the afternoon for some Après Racing Shenanigans! In fact, we’ve organised

  • some kids clinics DURING the event even with Momentum is Your Friend too
  • free social rides on the gravity and cross-country trails
  • plus the Hunter Shuttle Service is doing uplifts for the gravity shredders in the afternoon!

Whoop! All details below!

FREE Social Rides

This year we have been working with Momentum is your Friend to put together some social rides after the racing event. These will be free rides with a focus on fun and friendship.

Sarah, Heidi and the MIYF team will be leading some gravity rides and we’ve arranged for the Hunter Shuttle Service to be running in the afternoon as well – will post the link to buy their passes as soon as we get them through.

The rides are FREE and we ask that you arrange your own shuttle pass directly with Hunter Shuttles.
