Race 5 | Ipswich QLD | 07.08.2021

Fox Superflow racing is your mountain bike life with the volume turned up!
RACE THE WAY YOU RIDE: this is friendly enduro racing without a tight schedule.

Fox Superflow(TM) is racing the way you ride. Ride up at your own pace. Drop in with your buddies on each other’s tyre or leave a space to pin. It’s about doing party trains, railing berms and SENDING IT! Be a Rocky Trail racer and turn up the volume in your mountain bike life at the Fox Superflow!

This is friendly enduro racing without a tight schedule: You can pick the order in which to tackle the race stages, which makes this event social and action-packed at the same time! You can do up to five runs on each stage, the fastest one counts and there are no start orders, which means whatever category you’re in, you can ride together and still lock your own best race run in!

Get ready for an absolute adrenaline rush as you smash down our Superflow race tracks to hunt down those precious seconds for the win!

The Fox Superflow(TM) is Australia’s most popular gravity enduro series! And in 2021 we will race all down the East Coast of Australia – from the tip up in Queensland’s Tropical North via NSW and the ACT way down South in Victoria. We are stoked to be racing at Castle Hill Blackstone Reserve MTB Park, which provides some of the best single track in SE Queensland. Ipswich City Council and a group of dedicated volunteers have built the trails and facilities that makes this small but busy trail network one of the most popular in the region.

Race the way you ride.

These events truly are unique Australia-wide!

What’s the challenge? 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! Each event is a stand-alone event and you can also collect series points.

Who can race it? We offer an awesome day out to a wide range of riders through our broad race categories – from elite to amateur racers to families with juniors, couples and groups of friends riding together. Put on your race face – all your race pics are included in the entry!

No start order! You ride to the starts un-timed and you can pick the order in which to tackle the race tracks, which makes this event social and action-packed at the same time!

Pick-up race plate

Location

Castle Hill MTB Tracks – corner of Thomas and Mary Streets, Blackstone

We are racing at the Castle Hill MTB Tracks, which are apart of the historic Castle Hill Blackstone Reserve on the corner of Thomas and Mary Streets, Blackstone. We would like to thank the Ipswich Cycling Club for their support – these guys have worked tirelessly for a long time to build the facilities of the Castle Hill Blackstone Reserve for all mountain bikers.

2020 racemap (there may be variations for 2021):

  • FOX (Inca) is a fun and flowy but does contain a few corners that will test the skills of riders.
  • RaceFace (Phil’s) is the most technical track, starts next to FOX (aka INCA) and includes 2 technical loose and steep corners that will test the best. Expect this track to blow out so be ready to change line choice across the day. Track finishes on a jumps section at the bottom so “whip it” up.
  • STANS (World Cup) has some small doubles and a fun rocky section with a hidden landing for the brave (excellent B Lines for the conservative).
  • LAZER (Roweys) is again fast and flowy with a good combination of fun jumps that can all be rolled.

Race pics included!

All race photos are included in your entry and elite and amateur racers of different ages and riding preferences will have a blast – adults and juniors alike! Our young shredders love it, because they not only can smash their mates but also mum and dad out on track!
