The 2019 Fox Superflow Championships, sealed by Stan’s will be held at the best kept ‘enduro-secret of the North’: Jolly Nose MTB Park!
Supported by Port Macquarie Hastings Council on the weekend of 13+14 July this will be the perfect winter school holiday getaway for mountain biking lovers, besties and their families we reckon!
See for yourself:
It will be easy to entertain your race entourage in Port Macquarie and surrounds and we can see you practice on the Saturday and then kick back and relax with everyone on the local shores. Our event schedule was specifically designed with those social activities in mind: We have all race tracks ready and marked for the Saturday, so you can come and do some recky rides in your own time, before hitting race day on the Sunday!
First things first:
Race & venue at Jolly Nose MTB Park
Rocky Trail held an inaugural event at Jolly Nose MTB Park in 2018 and the feedback from our racers was overwhelmingly enthusiastic! The local club has a very passionate ‘enduro gravity’ crowd and they have been building and grooming trails that will let the ‘stoke level’ soar sky-high!
About the Fox Superflow
This is Rocky Trail’s take on Enduro: for riders of all ages and different XC or gravity backgrounds – race on ‘super-flowy’ singletrails for fun or hunt down those seconds for the win, perfect for riders who like to have a fun ride with a good challenge, especially if it is against the mates. It’s like a weekend ride with your besties, with timed sections in between! And because these events don’t stipulate any start orders they allow riders of all ages spend the whole day together on the bike.
Each Fox Superflow race throughout the year is a stand-alone event and riders can also collect points for an overall series classification with special awards at the end of the season for the top three racers with the most points in each category. The Jolly Nose race, however, is the Championship Event that offers fun trophies and extra-special bragging rights!
About Jolly Nose MTB Park
Jolly Nose Mountain Bike Park is located in Queens Lake State Forest near Bonny Hills just South of Port Macquarie. The park boasts approximately 50km of single track mountain bike trails for both enduro & cross country mountain bike riding.
The custodians of the park are the Hastings Valley MTB Riders (HVMBR). These guys have been racing the superflow events with Rocky Trail for years and their trails have been inspired by exactly this style of riding and racing – you’re in for an absolute treat!
Port Macquarie Hasting Valley
Port Macquarie and Hasting Valley is located on the Mid North Coast of NSW, boasting 17 gorgeous beaches, a lush hinterland, a diverse variety of attractions including the Koala Hospital, Billabong Zoo, river cruises, and a choice of accommodation from 4.5 star luxury hotels to camping by the beach. Top it off with one of the best year-round climates and a busy events calendar, it’s no wonder this is one of Australia’s most popular holiday destinations, and the friendly locals will welcome you with open arms.
So we’ve scheduled this Championship event in the middle of school holidays, because we know there is so much to see and do and to explore, even in winter! Let us tempt you!
