The awards will not focus simply on the fastest riders, but rather on those who stand out the most and are impressive throughout the year. 

Specifically, the panel will consider:

  • Efforts and hard work put in by the riders on and off the trails, ie. Rocky Trail race participation, training and how they conduct themselves and recognise the Rocky Trail community spirit on their main communication channels including social media, 
  • Engagement within the Rocky Trail community and efforts to encourage more people, particularly women and juniors, to participate in the sport,
  • Representation of the Rocky Trail Values on and off the trail. Rocky Trail was founded from a passion for mountain biking and the appreciation of nature and is striving to increase trail-based activities and creating sustainable whole-of-community benefits. Our values revolve around (1) Integrity, (2) Making a Difference, (3) Family, (4) Entertainment, (5) Fun and (6) Sustainability.
