Race tracks used
A massive shout-out to the trail crew from the HMBA Club! You guys rock and thank you so much for all the work you put in to get the trails race-ready again!
Biraban, Little Falcon into Red Loop, access from the event centre via Mt Faulk Road, go past the EWS start and traverse towards Fox Start.
Its recommended to do this track after you’ve done the Fox track (follow the signs) – from the Fox finish it’s a short climb to the start of the Wild Polly track. Start at the Rocky Trail sign. Ride back to the event centre via the Red Loop.
We race Faulk line, access from the event centre via Mt Faulk Road fire road – please note this track had to be re-built because of the recent wet weather and still has some very soft patches. Please watch out on your first runs.
MTB DIRECT TRACK – PRO STAGE
1 run needs to be recorded (fastest counts)
If you race on Sunday and select to be in the PRO Stage you will need to do at least 1 run on the 4th track. It will be on the lower section of the Monkey Downhill trail and a full face helmet is compulsory for this stage.
Un-timed Liaisons: some will use Mt Faulk Road.. This is a Public Road, please ride up on the left!
Get a taste for it… Local Lines with Ryan Gilchrist
Trails are in great condition, sun’s out and the inland wind will keep drying them out. It’s chilly though, so bring appropriate race clothing.
The Fox Superflow format provides so many options to the rider, and this weekend the opportunity to race three or four tracks across the whole weekend:
- Fox Superflow® riders tackle the 15 possible timed runs – you need to clock in at least one on each of the 3 tracks.
- Fox Superflow® PRO series riders tackle and ADDITIONAL 4th track with 20 possible timed runs – you need to clock in at least one on each track.
- 13 hours available with all the support you need.
- Race Saturday or Sunday or BOTH – spend the whole weekend racing!
Remember no vehicle or towing shuttles are allowed – Don’t forget that liaison to the starts are not timed, so grab your mate, friend, mum or dad and enjoy the leisurely ride to the top then be rewarded for your effort.
You don’t need to be a member of any cycling association to race with Rocky Trail. Some offer great insurance packages which are worthwhile checking out and you are in charge of your own health insurance when racing with us.
