About the event
RACE the way you RIDE. Superflow® racing is your mountain bike life with the volume turned up!
The Fox Superflow® is Australia’s most popular gravity enduro series, because it lets you set the pace and have your own adventure! Ride up at your own pace, then race: drop in with your buddies on each other’s tyre or leave a space to pin. It’s about doing party trains, railing berms and SENDING IT!
Supported by Rockhampton Regional Council, the race is happening at the world-class First Turkey MTB Trails, home of Rocky MTB Club. And really, what place is better for a Rocky Trails race than ROCKY?!!
This is gravity enduro racing without a tight schedule: you can pick the order in which to tackle the race stages, which makes this event social and action-packed at the same time! No harsh cut-off times or start orders, which means whatever category you’re in, you can ride together and lock your own best race run in! and the variety of trails we pick offers a mad enduro challenge.
Stop, see, stay. You’ll be surprised.
There is such a long list of ways to #ExploreRockhampton while you’re in town for the race. Find everything you need in the information below!
Whether you’re looking for 5-star luxury, pub-style budget, an apartment for the family, or even a visit at a working farm – take a look at what Rockhampton has to offer by searching and booking your accommodation below.
Alkoomi Adventure Farm
If you’re looking for a more unique option for your stay in the Rockhampton region, there is nothing more perfect than this family-owned & operated farm stay.
There are both campsites and accommodation, and included in every stay is a free farm animal feeding each afternoon, plus sulky rides for the kids (and free firewood of course, for the campfire or the wood-fired bbqs). You can even grab your bike and explore the farm to warm up for the race.
There are so many activities to do and unforgettable memories to be made on the farm, but don’t worry if you’ve already booked your hotel – you can also book a day trip so that you can still experience the adventure of horse riding and motorbike/UTV riding, kayaking, or a Chuck Wagon Sunset Tour!
Give Dave and Becc a quick call or send them a text – all their information and costs are on the website, or check out their Facebook page. Join a fun-loving Aussie Family on their cattle farm and make memories that will last you a lifetime.
