No start order, no worries! This is the series that has been taking our Rocky Trail gravity community by storm – ideal for those who are keen to take on an endurance challenge of a different kind!
At these events riders of all ages and many different XC or gravity backgrounds race on ‘super-flowy’ singletrails for fun or are hunting down those seconds for the win. Within a set timing window you complete a set of timed race stages, which are predominantly downhill – the faster you go, the more challenging it gets! No big jumps or drop-offs though and you ride to the starts untimed – at your pace! Spend all day together, whatever category you’re in – perfect for families, groups of mates and couples of different ages and riding preferences! Who’s going to clock in the fastest time?
Founded in 2012! Rocky Trail’s Superflow events have been based on the popular US and European enduro races. However, we have adapted the format to suit the specific features of the Australian landscape and venue conditions. The Superflow events have been growing over the years since we ran the first race in 2012 – we are proud that we developed these events to be so popular.
Because the race tracks are picked by the Rocky Trail crew so that they give the riders that “super flowy” feeling! Each timed section demands different skill sets of the riders – from tricky sections around rocks and tight corners to flowy berms and quick stints that needed pedal power and endurance.
Almost all events require riders to ride to the starts on their bikes and it that way the series offers a big variety of trails. All our trails can be as tough as you want them to be – there are always different line choices and generally, the faster and the harder you go, the more challenging they get. We specifically pick our venues to meet those requirements.
2019 events and locations
We are starting off in Thredbo in April and then we will rock Stromlo Forest Park in Canberra on 2 June. Awaba MTB Park near Newcastle will host an event on 30 June and the local Hunter Mountain Bike Association has been building and upgrading trails specifically for it! Port Macquarie will then host the Fox Superflow Championship event on 14 July. The Rocky Trail crew said that they picked Jolly Nose MTB Park for the Championship event, because they wanted their racers to discover the most well-kep ‘enduro-secret of the North’. Further events include Ourimbah State Forest Park near Wyong on 1 September, supported by Central Coast Council followed by Taree in Kiwarrak State Forest on 22 September and Greenvalleys MTB Park on 17 November.
Explore the trails on Saturday, race on Sunday
At all venues we mark the race tracks early so that you can explore them on the Saturday for an inofficial practice day. Race day is the Sunday. For details event schedules, visit the specific event pages for each round/venue.
No start order, no worries
They are unique Australia-wide in that we can offer an awesome day out to a wide range of riders – from elite to amateur racers to families, couples and groups of friends riding together. We have introduced a very flexible timing system so our events don’t require any start orders and riders can pick the sequence in which to complete the timed race stages themselves. That way, riders of different categories can spend all day riding and racing together.

Important info on how to attach the race plate
When you attach the number plate to your bike please make sure that:
- you attach it only onto the handlebar using the holes already in the plate
- the chip on the back of the plate doesn’t touch any part of your frame or handlebar
- you don’t cut, punch extra holes or alter the number plate
If the plate is not attached properly we can’t assure that the timing will work and some of your times might not be recorded.
