What is Fox Superflow® racing?
RACE THE WAY YOU RIDE
Freedom, riding, being outside, friends, community, heavy breathing leading to epic descents. It’s what we do and it’s what the Fox Superflow® is all about. Let’s bang into some berms and do turnbars off jumps. Life is for living!
The Fox Superflow® is Rocky Trail’s unique gravity format, which has been taking the enduro community by storm with its flexible format that let’s racers across a wide range of age categories ride and race together all day.
It’s 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!
Who can race it?
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!
There are many age categories in this event – a solid field of Elites and semi-pros in the Expert (19+) and Veterans (30+) across male and female classifications, with big groups of mates chasing each other on the race tracks. One of the strongest representations we get in the Masters (40+ / 50+ / 60+) with a good third of competitors in those fields – many of them racing with their juniors and families!
Our junior truly bring the event to life – over one third of racers are usually Under 17 years old with competitors as young as 10 at the start lines. The junior podiums generally are always full across boys and girls categories with U13, U15 and U17s as well as U19’s smashing it out on the trails.
We are offering a buddy system for the races – parents or guardians can race themselves and be with their juniors all day because of our flexible timing system. However, we also offer them to accompany young competitors out on track for free as buddies or marshals. This can be arranged on the day with our registration crew.
Get ready for an absolute adrenaline rush as you smash down our Superflow race tracks to hunt down those precious seconds for the win!
How does it work?
Ride to start un-timed: You ride to the starts un-timed, which means you can spend all day together with mates, your partner or the junior frothers!
Three timed race stages, up to five runs on each, fastest time on each counts! That’s 15 possible race runs! Within a set timing window you complete a set of timed race stages down – the faster you go, the more challenging it gets! Race face on – photos included!!
No start-order! No worries! We have a flexible timing system so you can pick yourself when to race which stage – up to 5 runs on each!
Generally, you pick your race day, Saturday or Sunday – check the individual race pages for the venue-specific set up. There are usually 3 timed race tracks and we aim at a race time of 10-15 minutes.
LIVE timing: Start and finish of each race stage is automatic; we will have marshalls in place. Cross the line, check your result on your phone!

2022 Race tracks:
Additional 4th race track added
This will be the biggest Fox Superflow® yet. We have been receiving so many waitlist requests, that we arranged to increase the capacity for the race with ride and racing experience in mind. The major change: an additional 4th “MTB Direct” race track – Little Seymour and Breakout with a neutral ride to the start, which is similar to the Stans and Lazer track liaisons.
All four race tracks have to be completed at least once (up to 5 times) and the fastest time on each will count towards the results.
- FOX: Trebuchet, Luge, Finish on fire trail at the end of Luge.
- STANS: Start at the tunnel, Trebuchet, Old Duffy Descent.
- LAZER: Start at the tunnel, Carolyn’s into Triple Treat, then Wallaby Run, singletrail sprint along the Downhill track behind 4X hill, timing point at the Downhill finish.
- MTBDirect Track – Starts on Little Seymore and at the Willo roundabout heads down Breakout.
Neutral liaison rides will be marked – riders can choose to dash up on the fire trails or use the single trail climbs.
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!

Event Update 25.09.2020
1. Change of location of our Operations and Medical Hub – this is where you pick up the number plate => it is now at the start of the Double Dissolution track. Due to the rain today Friday, our event can can’t be driven up. The start location as indicated on the Google Map below is still the same (Start area Pork Barrell).
2. The “Western Car Park” of Stromlo Forest Park on Uriara Road (END of Double Dissolution) will be open for us, so if you park there, it will be very easy to get your number plate on the way to the Start further up the hill.
3. Access Operations/Medical Hub from main car park: you can also access this point easily from the main car park; stay on the lower side of the hill, ride up Wattle Happen + Blackberry Climb + Slant Six or stay on Fireroad + Go past Wombat Junction (Willo Memorial) and jump onto Willo Link, this spits you out right at the hub (or stay on fireroad that leads there too).
