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 shares elements of the downhill track and cross country track. 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.
Registration from 8:00am, practice until first timed run at 10:00am SHARP. Stage 2 practice after the last Stage1 timed run until Stage 2. Stage 2 timed runs from midday SHARP.
Both runs count to the overall accumulated time and in true Enduro style, NO SHUTTLES will be provided or ALLOWED. 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.
GE race day fees are $35.00 plus an additional $25 for an MTBA day license if you don’t have one. Registration is from 8am, racing starts at 9:00pm sharp. Absolutely no private shuttles allowed, anybody using private shuttles will face disqualification.
