Have a look here for all the track info: http://www.thredbo.com.au/mountain/biking-trails/
The RedAss Downhill #Enduro trail used will be the Cannonball Downhill Trail. 1 race run per rider + seeding runs for some if not all categories.
The Fox Rollercoaster #Superflow trail used will be 2 runs of the Kosciuszko Flow Trail. Combined time counts.
- Can I practice the track before the race?
Yes - and you can get a $30 lift ticket on the Friday (competitors only). You can purchase them at the Thredbo sports shop. We will provide them with the current rider list.
- Can I get a cheaper rate if I have a Thredbo season pass?
Unfortunately the race fees won't change if you have a season pass. Obviously you don't need another ticket for Friday practice.
- Do I need an induction for the trails and the chairlift?
Yes you do, but there will be a quick version of it.
Accommodation Partners for 2017:
We arranged a special rate for you guys at the Candlelight Lodge in Thredbo. We staid there in previous years and it's a very nice place close to the lift and with a lockable room for the bikes. You pay $60 instead of $110 per person per night if you quote "Rollercoaster" or "RedAss Downhill" when making your reservation. This price includes breakfast. You can call them on (02) 6457 6318.
