Race 2 | Stromlo ACT | 27.03.2021

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

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!

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

Get ready for an absolute adrenaline rush as you smash down our Superflow race tracks to hunt down those precious seconds for the win! Supported by Events ACT, this race 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!  At this Fox Superflow event you can do your 5 race runs and you choose either Saturday or Sunday as your race day when you sign up online.


How we choose the tracks at Stromlo:

1. Track Variety

2. Logistics & Timing

3. Athlete & Public Safety

  1. Track Variety: The 3 tracks we have on offer will offer a wide variety of flow, fast, technical and outright awesome tracks.
  2. Logistics & Timing: Having the same start for all 3 tracks is also very important from a logistical and technical timing point of view. For this, we specifically upgraded our timing system.
  3. Athlete & Public Rider Safety: During Covid the trails at Stromlo have become incredibly busy and we want to avoid mixing public with our athletes, because this will diminish the fun for both riders and #rockytrailracers. We will choose the tracks accordingly.

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!

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).
