Welcome to the Fox Superflow® 2022 in Rockhampton!
Kicking off this weekend is round 4 and our first EWS qualifier round for 2022. The QLD crew is always pumped to offer a new venue for our series riders and introduce the Fox Superflow format to the locals. First impression of this region is that we need more time to explore, so much is on offer. The local club members have been hard at work getting the trails to mint condition and the recent rain was the finishing touch that was needed.
RACE THE WAY YOU RIDE
VIRTUAL RIDER BRIEFING
We have a jam-packed weekend of racing with this year’s Superflow® PRO series offering a 4th track to race at this event plus the bonus of an EWS qualifier round. Remember this is designed to test the seasoned racer and not for everyone.
- All track runs are live timed so check your result as you cross the line.
- At this event you can race BOTH Saturday and SUNDAY – timing chips are active on both days. The EWS Quali points (and 4th stage) are offered on the Sunday only.
- Classifications – in summary, racers get results for Fox Superflow® 3 stages and – if selected on Sunday – an additional classification for 4 stages with the Pro Stage.
- 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.
Pro Stage Info:
- U21, Elite and Master 35+ categories (based on EWS rules)
- We encourage a min. age of 17+ for the Pro Stages (based on EWS events) – chat to the crew at rego on the day, if you have any questions.
