  • Can I practice the track before the race?
    Yes - and you can get a $30 lift ticket on the Friday (competitors only)
  • 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.
  • The Rollercoaster is on Saturday - will this affect practice?
    There is 1 crossover where we will have a marshall to stop riders doing DH practice when a Flow Rollercoaster competitor is coming through.
  • Do I need an induction for the trails and the chairlift?
    Yes you do, but there will be a quick version of it.

Stromlo Forest Park, Canberra

Stromlo Forest Park is located only 10min drive from Canberra and is a world-class multi-use, recreational sporting facility available to both recreational and professional users. There is a purpose built event pavilion, which holds bathroom facilities, including showers, all surrounded by a vast network of mountain bike tracks to suit any level of rider!

This is a racing and riding weekend to bring along family and friends – we will be able to block off traffic from the pavilion area so that also the kids can roam around freely and have a ball on their bikes and running around. It's very family-friendly with a kids playground and we'll arrange for a few more surprises (we're thinking jumping castle, face painting...) to keep them busy and happy. There will also be short fun-races & competitions for them, but you still need to have someone there to look after them. However, we can guarantee you, they will be tired that night :-)

How to get to the event location:
The address is: Stromlo Forest Park, Uriarra Road Stromlo and it is off Cotter Road in Canberra (ACT).
Here is the location on Google maps: -35° 19' 12.06", +149° 1' 28.86"

Important notice regarding traffic conditions & parking:
There are approximately 800 on site car spaces at Stromlo Forest Park. To access these, enter Stromlo Forest Park from the main entrance, following the access road until you see two large areas located behind the event pavilion. If in doubt, follow the blue car park signs.

More information about Stromlo Forest Park can be found here: www.stromloforestpark.com.au

It is a public MTB track and you can ride it in the lead up to the race.

You can camp at the Stromlo car park and event centre but please note that the gates shut at around 7pm.

We will have 2 tracks and you race each track once. Combined times count. You will have to ride to the start of both tracks. No shuttles will be provided.
