This is an important race update for all #rockytrailracers in Toowoomba with us in 2022!
Last update: Thu, 12 May 2022
12.05. 10am – Fox Superflow® RACE POSTPONED ALSO
Unfortunately we have to postpone the race. One of our key Event Staff tested positive for Covid this morning and must isolate. Our QLD event team has been travelling to Toowoomba over the last few days and we made the decision to postpone also under the assumption that the whole core event delivery team has been exposed – safety for our riders is as always a main concern.
In addition, the area has received far more rain over the last 48 hours than expected and local flooding may become an issue with 70-80mm overnight. The forecast for Friday that we had worked on earlier in the week has now also changed from “light rain” to “severe rain”.
Our plan from earlier this week to run the Sunday racing, was driven strongly by the EWS Qualification status for the event. We wanted to provide Australian racers the opportunity to collect EWS points before heading overseas.
We are now working on a new date in liaison with the local club and the team from EWS overseas. We ask you to please allow us until next week to find one as we remain committed to provide you with EWS Quali points.
As always at Rocky Trail, all riders who can’t come to the new date will be offered a credit or refund. We will communicate that procedure once the new date has been confirmed.
Friday: Event postponed
Sadly the predicted weather in the next couple of days will not allow for an enjoyable day and we have made the decision to postpone the event. All current registrations will automatically be transferred to the new date of 3rd of June. We hope to see you there!
If you can’t make it to the new date please email email@example.com to request a refund.
Note: track selection on the new date may change depending on the conditions of trails at the time of the event.
Fox Superflow®: Event Postponed
