Gravity enduro is MTB racing’s new kid in the block. Some say it’s where DH racers go to retire, others say it’s where XC racers go when they’re having a mid-life crisis and realise they’ve never been driven to the top of a hill for the sole purpose of riding down it.
Either way we know it is a fun relaxed racing format that rewards skill as much as fitness and does not discriminate over equipment, however new MTBA rules mean you will need a full face helmet or a helmet with a removable chin bar
For 2018 season we are running the Downhill and Enduro racing concurrently. This means that enduro racers can use the shuttle for first stage and if they choose, can participate in the Downhill points series using their stage 1 runs to enter.
The Ourimbah Gravity Enduro stage 1 uses the downhill track, other stages use all mountain and cross country tracks. It is a challenging track with ‘B’ (easier) lines around the difficult sections and can be very unforgiving with many rocky sections and trees that are close to the edge of the track.
Online Registration (penalties apply for on the day rego)
Practice Stage 1 (downhill track) until first timed run at 10:00am SHARP (Best of 2 runs), shuttles shared with Downhill racers.
Stage 2, 3, 4 after end of Stage 1 NO SHUTTLES and 1 timed run each stage.
All valid runs count to the overall accumulated time and in true Enduro style, SHUTTLES will be provided for first stage only, no further shuttles are permitted. Time penalties will apply if you get busted getting your mates to drag you up the hill.
Full or open face helmet with removable chin bar, 26, 650b or 29er – Run what you brung and prepare for a great day’s racing.
