Saturday 30. March 2019
Be a part of the NSW and ACT gravity racing scene with the RedAss Downhill Championships in Thredbo – full face helmets, big suspension, high-speed, rock drops, gap jumps and full gas!
The event is part of a long gravity weekend by Rocky Trail Entertainment with the RedAss Downhill Championships on the Saturday and the enduro-style Fox Superflow race on the Sunday.
Thredbo is the ideal playground for gravity racers and is one of the most popular destinations for downhillers! Enjoy the Alpine village atmosphere with accommodation options available right next to the event centre and mingle with fellow racers at the end of the day. Downhillers can practice all Friday with discounted lift tickets available. The race entry includes the lift pass for race day on Saturday on the challenging and steep Thredbo downhill track. Package deals to compete in both events are available – visit the event website for all details as well as accommodation offers! Spectator entry to the event centre is free.

Yes, it includes Saturday’s liftpass.

- I heard there is a Superflow race on the same weekend – can I enter both?
Absolutely! We are running the Fox Superflow on the same weekend so the place will be buzzing with gravity MTBing all weekend. You can purchase the extra entry as an add-on during the registration process.
