Rider Briefing Fox Superflow® Mackay QLD 2022


Welcome to the Fox Superflow® 2022 Round 3 of the QLD Series Mackay in the start of the tropical North Queensland region!


From the Darling Downs region last weekend we are now settling into the North Queensland lifestyle of thongs, sunscreen and brim hats in Mackay!

The RT crew is getting ready for a cracking weekend of racing and socialising with our riders and families. Racing in regional locations allows us to reward the riders for the effort to come and explore with us: in Mackay we’re putting on 2 days racing for the standard one-day entry fee. That is 13hrs of timing to get your best times in, timing chips are active Saturday and Sunday! 

We have more good news the camping facilities on site are gorgeous with lush green grass, plenty of room plus open camp fires allowed.  

We are guaranteed a great weekend and look forward to seeing you all here.

  • All track runs are live timed so check your result as you cross the line.
  • PRIZE Ceremony: MTB DIRECT sponsors over $20,000 worth of online vouchers for this year’s series for your next shopping spree on their site for 1-2-3 category podium getters!
  • Giveaways from our sponsors.


ABOUT the venue


Rowallan MTB Park – home track of the MAD MTB Club, Mackay QLD

  • Located approx. 10 mins from the CBD this green recreational space is well maintained with good facilities and amazing rainforest MTB trails – still a hidden gem for most riders.
  • Access to the park is via a dirt gravel road – Glendaragh Rd, Farleigh. Take it slow along this strip of road.


  • Ample parking area is located just inside the entrance gate on the left handside of the road, with overflow parking in the pine tree area.
  • The event hub will be located near the MADMTB clubhouse and shelter area.
  • Look for the flags and Redbull tent.

Race tracks used

  • FOX Track: FOX track includes the first 2 wooden features of the “Millsy’s Ringa Mahi” from that point you can choose your own adventure! Both lines converge onto “102” for some rocky descents before cutting into the skills park onto the wooden berm to finish just below the MAD Mountain Bike Club House. This track offers both A and B line options to cater for riders of all.
  • STANS Track: Sharing its start with LAZER the classic “Calabri” onto “Rock and Roll” to finish just below the event hub (1.3km – 125 vert)
  • LAZER Track: Both Stans & Lazer flick to the left before dropping onto the road and splitting. Stans takes “Organ Donor” onto “Pips Playground” before a hard left into “Jellyfish” passing under the bridge for a short pedal to the finish.
  • Un-timed Liaisons: up the Mango Alley fire road trail
