Race 4 | Stromlo ACT | 26.09.2020

Legs screaming, heart pumping, adrenaline surging: Stromlo Forest Park


You know those perfect weekend rides with your besties? Fanging around with the little shredders? Always wanted to get your ‘other half’ to go racing with you? You love riding and exploring those trails together, meeting other riders and chatting about bikes and life, then racing each other absolutely smashing it down your favourite descent? Then you will love the our Superflows, because with us you can RACE THE WAY YOU RIDE!

Supported by Events ACT, Race 2 will take you to Stromlo Forest Park with one of the most popular Rocky Trail set of race tracks – it will make your frothing gravity mountain bikers’ hearts skip a beat! Superflow racing is your mountain bike life with the volume turned up!

What is Superflow racing?

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!

How does it work?

Pick-up race plate

Read the online rider briefing ahead of the race and on the day pick up your race number from the rego desk.

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!

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!

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!

All Fox Superflows are stand-alone races and all riders are welcome. You can also collect points for an overall series ranking throughout the season – details will be sent out via the Rider Briefing ahead of each race.

Our COVID-19 Response

Special COVID-19 measures in place

Race day Saturday & Sunday*

Up to 5 runs of EACH track!

Fastest run counts, LIVE results.

What people love about the Superflow races is that they normally get to practice all day Saturday. With the COVID-19 measures this will change slightly and we will be racing on both days, Saturday AND Sunday in some venues*. You can select your preferred day when signing up.

What will not change is that you can still do up to 5 race runs on each track! You can also still pick the order in which you complete your race runs.
Your fastest run on each track counts and there are LIVE results! Cross the line, pull out your phone and see how you went!

IMPORTANT: Event accreditation is mandatory for any spectator, supporter or media. You must sign up via the race portal (free admission, but limited spots)!

Why you will love it!

Ride.

Explore the trails together, make it a MTB weekend away! The race tracks are mostly downhill – the faster you go, the more challenging it gets!

Race.

On race day you complete a set of timed race stages within a set timing window. You ride to the starts untimed though, which makes this event social and action-packed at the same time!

Your way.

There are no start orders, which means you can spend all day together with mates, your partner or the junior frothers! Racers of different ages and riding preferences will have a blast! Together.

Whatever category you’re in – perfect for families, groups of mates and couples of different ages and riding preferences! Who’s going to clock in the fastest time?
