Landslide causes Falls Creek Fox Superflow® event postponement

Dear Rocky Trail Racers,

The recent severe wet weather across large parts of Victoria caused landslide events that have been occurring on the northern access route of the Bogong High Plains Road. This is a major access road to the Falls Creek Resort and Rocky Trail Entertainment has been advised, that the Department of Transport (DoT) has now closed the road from Mt. Beauty to Falls Creek for all access as it is impassable for vehicles. Authorities are working toward a relaxation of the road access constraints by Christmas subject to ongoing assessment of the site. This is due to the ongoing safety risk.

We therefore unfortunately have to postpone the Falls Creek Fox Superflow® and are currently working on determining a new date supported by the Falls Creek resort team.

We have been advised that also the alternate route into Falls Creek from from Omeo and Mitta Mitta has now been re-opened, however, only for residents, staff, and urgent works contractors to enter the resort. It is our understanding that the resort is currently operating at a minimal capacity. Whilst the access is blocked for the general public, there is no medical service, and a minimum travel time of 2 hours for Emergency Service responders such as Ambulance Victoria or the Victorian Police. All these factors will make an event delivery impossible on the originally scheduled date of 10+11 December.

Our current registrations indicate a huge take-up on the 2-day and 6-race track Fox Superflow® we had planned for Falls Creek. We are now working together with the resort team to determine a new date for 2023.

We endeavour to have a new date by early w/c 31 October 2022 and will communicate transfer, credit and refund options then to all registered racers. Rocky Trail will then also publish the new date via website and our newsletter as well as social media channels.

We thank you for your support and patience.
