Race 1 | Townsville QLD

Date

Saturday 12. September 2020

What’s better than having hills with picturesque views within 15 minutes of a CBD? Being able to ride 30km of single track on those hills 24/7 – and to race those trails for 4 and 7 hours with Rocky Trail!

In 2020 we will resurrect one of Queensland’s most iconic MTB events together with the local Rockwheelers MTB Club! Introducing: the

Shimano Mountain Bike HOT ROCK Grand Prix

The Hot Rock used to be a staple on the Rockwheelers events calendar and the club has invited Rocky Trail to help bring it back to life. We will race the Mount Douglas Reserve – with heaps of vertical and a ton of rocky trails this will no doubt be the start of a new chapter in the “Hot Rock” racing history in Townsville!

For more details about the series, visit the overview page.


Rocky Trail Racing in Townsville – back-to-back with Fox Superflow!

We will back up the cross-country racing action with a Fox Superflow event in Townville the next weekend, which will dial the froth factor to 11! There will be a Rocky Trail Academy race on the Friday 18 September, a full day of superflow practice on the Saturday and race day on Sunday 20 September!

We will race again at Mount Douglas Reserve with three radical race tracks – the “epitemy of superflow”, says our crew on the ground!

More details to follow – we are currently exploring some mid-week social rides together with the Rockwheelers! We’ll keep you posted!


Location

The event centre is very well set up at the bottom of the hill with a skills park – a great local community of mountain bikers is ready for rocky trail racing with you!
