2016 will bring an evolution to all things gravity at Rocky Trail. With 4 years of Enduro and 6 years of Downhill racing history we have gained a lot of experience in bringing you those races. We are constantly listening to what you have to say and monitor what is going on overseas.
The biggest change will be that all DH racers will do 2 runs on the same track and the faster time counts. You will also be able to either race and practice on Sunday only or make a weekend out of it by adding the Shuttle Pass for Saturday.
In order to reflect those changes it will be called the RedAss Downhill Enduro and our Rollercoaster series will become the #Superflow type of racing.

||All-Mountain bikes with 4-5 inches of travel are ideal but you will also be able to race with a (full suspension) Cross Country bike.
Full face helmet is a requirement. U17 and younger categories also must wear knee and elbow guards as well as full finger gloves.
We further recommend neck and back protection.
|As much as you like but we only require you to wear a standard cycling helmet.
