First enduro-style race in Mackay! What a treat being invited to race the “MAD” trails at Rowallan Park by the local Mackay & District (MAD) Mountain Bike Club! As one of the original mountain bike clubs founded in Australia in the late eighties, these guys are serious about their trails and the Superflow race stages will feature some trail combinations that even the locals would have never ridden, let alone raced, in that way before, awesome rock features, radical berms and all three will start in one spot! Get ready for MAD tropical superflow racing in Mackay, people!
Schedule: Saturday – trails will be marked for a ‘social ride’ and practice day, Sunday – race day.
How does it work? 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. 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!
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!
