Shimano MTB Grand Prix

Racing is a matter of spirit not strength.

This is cross-country racing at its best!

Our Mountain Bike Grand Prix may just be the most inclusive cross-country racing series of events in Australia! From the first time between the tape to people that have spent a lifetime training for power output, we have you covered when you line up at the Rocky Trail start line!

These races showcase some of the most popular and exciting mountain bike trail networks across the East Coast of Australia – from the Far North to South East NSW, stretching along the NSW Coastline and venturing into the ACT plus tapping into the awesome Gippsland trails of VIC!

How it works

Special COVID-19 measures in place

4 hour – GP4 and
6 hour – GP6

Lap-based race format.

Race day: Saturday

Make every race count!

Every event is a standalone race and competitors accumulate points for an overall series ranking, plus will join the points tally for the “league of extraordinary #rockytrailracers”, which will reward racers across all Rocky Trail events.


Solo racers and pairs teams race for four (GP4) or six (GP6) hours across age categories for adults and junior shredders.


Racers receive a placing in their age category and in an online General Classification (GC).
There are age-group and eBike categories.

Important: Special COVID-19 Race Rules in place!

All competitors need to sign up online and please note that event Check-In is mandatory for any non-racer incl. spectators and supporter. Media representatives please get your event accreditation by contacting us ahead or get it on the day at the registration desk. Everyone must CHECK IN via the relevant Covid Check-In App with the QR Code displayed at the registration desk in the Rocky Trail event centre. Find App download and state/territory-specific information via our Covid Check-In portal!

Racing isn’t (just)
about how long it takes you to get from the start to the finish.
It’s (also) about the adventure
you have along the way, the people you meet and

the unique moments you share.

Be a #rockytrailracer!

2021 Line-Up

This is your Shimano GP World

I worked out that my teenage son and I have done 5 SuperFlow events, 7 Shimano GPs and the Willo. That is a total of 13 road trips in 2020 that he and I have done together, 13 times we have either chased each other down the trails in SuperFlows, swapped laps in Shimano GPs or stayed together for as long as we could at the Canberra Willo. I’m like any other Dad, to get that sort of quality time with your teenage son is priceless, and will end up being one of the highlights of my life. All this recorded forever in over 114 professional photographs this year alone.
All this because of what you and Martin do.

Have been racing with and involved with the Rocky Trail Entertainment team for some 7 years now. The JetBlack MTB Racing loves being a part of this awesome calendar of racing which has covered XC, Flow & DH. There is NO promoter in the country that can deliver what Rocky Trail does for the MTB public both on and off the trails. Looking forward to again hitting the dirt with the team who have been busy training in isolation ready for the re-commencement of season 2020.

So many reasons to keep coming back to these events. For me it’s meeting friends at rego, saying hi to Martin Wisata and the team before the race, enjoying the pre-race nerves during the briefing and whilst lined up behind the flags, the buzz of the start and the all out gas on lap 1 followed by 7 hours of great trails. I ride solo but the vibe at the end of each lap in the event centre is great, from the music blaring to random riders cheering you on from the sidelines. Having some of the nations best riders there is great, but not once have I seen any arrogance or aggressive behaviour on the trails which goes to show the atmosphere created at the races is spot on!
It’s an overall mix of friendship, fun and competitiveness. Missing it and can’t wait to be back!!
