About the Event
The Shimano MTB GP events are all about “seriously fun” racing! Podium chasers can line up with Australia’s elites and experienced amateur endurance racers plus casual racers will have a blast, all feeling safe and part of an inspiring community.
Supported by Wellington Shire Council, the event is happening at the fantastic Blores Hill Mountain Bike Park, where you can race for four (GP4) or six (GP6) hours solo, or in relay pairs. There are age-group and eBike categories. Expect less of a winners-only-focused competition, but a positive and inclusive experience for all racers.
With temporary COVID-19 event rules active, we have a participant limit in place – please check the event website for all the details. Competitors must sign up online. This event is tracking all participants and any non-racing spectator or supporter must register online for an event accreditation at no charge.
This is XC lap racing at its best! 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!
