What is a Downduro?

Our Downduro will be everything you love about gravity enduro, multiple stages, heaps of good people with one added bonus… Shuttles! No pedalling up the most lung busting drive in Sandford, Just jump on a bus at the bottom. But this is still no slack pack easy going, hows the weather kinda ride because once your at the top it’s all business! We are putting a another twist on GE though with our popular multi run format. Stages will open at 9:30am and you can do as many runs as you like of both stages. Just make sure you return your timing chip to race control once your done. Your best overall time will automatically be uploaded.

And we nearly forgot to mention FREE KIDS RACE FOR 5 TO 10 YEAR OLDS!!! If you have a super shredder kid that wants to come along we will be opening a kids only stage just after lunch for an hour. Kids must be accompanied by a parent as a follow rider. Child and parent must hold Auscycling memberships

A huge thank you to Christian and Karina Oakes for inviting us to their trails for this event!
