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!

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!

We created Rocky Trail Entertainment so that you can RACE THE WAY YOU RIDE!

We 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 also offer Hardtail and eBike categories.

There are regional, state and outright series classifications – the series points you collect for each race you attend will be added together and split into NSW/ACT, QLD North, QLD South and VIC. Additionally we will crown the overall Australian Fox Superflow Champions.

Included in each entry: $60 race photo package from the crew at OuterImage.com.au – competitors can download their photos from an online portal after each event.

We’re back, and once again and Rowalan Park XC tracks will be “unpicked and restitched” to provide 3 Flowy gravity tracks. All three race stages are starting at the top of the hill!

Tracks maybe subject to change, final details will be confirmed prior to racing.

Fox

FOX track includes the first 2 wooden features of the “Millsy’s Ringa Mahi” from that point you can choose your own adventure! Both lines converge onto “102” for some rocky descents before cutting into the skills park onto the wooden berm to finish just below the MAD Mountain Bike Club House.

A line – continue on Ringa Mahi for a Rocky technical run that will test your line selection all day long.

B line – a newly created link crossing the fire road into Wild Turkey

Stans

Both Stans & Lazer flick to the left before dropping onto the road and splitting. Stans takes “Organ Donor” onto “Pips Playground” before a hard left into “Jellyfish” passing under the bridge for a short pedal to the finish.

Lazer

Both Stans & Lazer flick to the left before dropping onto the road and splitting. Stans punches up onto “Dragon Back”, down onto road heading into Pride rock then onto “The Bees Line” pass “Devils Elbow onto the B track down to Mosquito Creek for the finish.

Untimed liaison sections will utilise fire road, Flat bikkie, and the switchbacks. Sections will be coursed marked.
