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
The Ourimbah Gravity Enduro 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.
Each round this season will be increasing in difficulty, longer stages where not only skills but fitness and ability to recover will play a role. Possibly even new sections not used for racing before!
