Race 3 | Nerang QLD

Date

Sunday 31 May 2020

Superflow racing is your mountain bike life with the volume turned up!

With the launch of the Fox Superflow at Nerang National Park in November 2019 we established a Rocky Trail base with two dedicated Event Managers in Queensland. Find out more…

We will return to Nerang in 2020 and can’t wait to meet more new Rocky Trail racers! There are many must-ride trails in Nerang and we’ll feature some of those favourite descents again including Petes, Three Hills and Barneys.

Superflow racing in QLD – established in 2019

Rocky Trail Entertainment have been running Fox Superflow events across NSW and the ACT since 2012 – they are based on the 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.

Location

2019 Highlight Reel


Did you know?

In 2019 Rocky Trail in conjunction with Nerang State High School held a Gold Coast Schools Mountain Bike Comp on Friday, 1st November at Nerang National Park ahead of the Fox Superflow race. This event is all about encouraging students of all abilities to come and race with their mates in a fun safe environment.

Rocky Trail plans to offer this event again in 2020, liaising with local schools so that students will have the opportunity to test their riding ability across three skill areas – Endurance – Speed – Technical. Find out more about it here.
