Race 1 | Mackay QLD | 22.05.2021

Get MAD about Superflow® racing!

This event is part of our Fox Superflow QLD North Series in 2021.

Fox Superflow® 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® 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.

Get ready for MAD tropical superflow racing in Mackay, people! What a treat being invited to race the “MAD” trails at Rowallan Park by the local Mackay & District (MAD) Mountain Bike Club!

This race is supported by the Mackay Region and you can race those trails like you’ve never raced them before: Superflow-style!
