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. By combining this with know how about local trails and how they can be best utilised we are working on the next Rocky Trail gravity racing evolution:
With the exception of Thredbo where we will utilize the chairlift there will be no more shuttles at the Rollercoaster #Superflow. If shuttled races are your thing check out the RedAss Downhill #Enduro series. There will be between 2 and 4 trails per race and the combined times count. Here are the 2 race series explained:
||Fox Rollercoaster #Superflow
hydrated by Camelbak
|RedAss Downhill Enduro
||No, other than Thredbo you ride to the start
|Number of tracks
Between 2 and 4 - you ride every track once.
Combined time counts.
In Thredbo there will be 2 runs on the same trail - combined time counts.
|One track that you ride twice - combined time counts.
Thredbo being the exception where you only race the track once. We will have seeding runs for some if not all categories.
||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.
||Downhill bikes and 5-6 inch travel All-Mountain bikes
||As much as you like but we only require you to wear a standard cycling helmet.
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.
||Predominantly downhill with a few pedally sections in them. Technical features will have B-lines. Big jumps will be closed off.
|| Only downhill. Challenging descents. Most technical features have B-lines.
||You decide the sequence in which you race. Only time to watch is the cut-off time for the last run. No start order. Ride in groups even if you are in different categories.
||Traditional DH start order with fixed times when you need to be at the startgate.
