Course

What we can tell you is, the trails at Mystic Park, Bright will test your fitness, skill and mental capabilities. Expect a mix of trails, plus a fair bit of climbing to see who has really been doing secret isoTraining! This won’t be a flow trail fest and you will need to pedal to the top (at least once). You have been warned – get training! Stay tuned to the Alpine Cycling Club social channels (including our event specific Instagram: @acc_gravity_enduro) for a sneak peek over the coming months. 

Prizes

Minimum $2000 Prize pool for Elite

Plus stacks of awesome prizes for all categories from our sponsors – All Terrain Cycles, Bright Brewery, Cyclepath, Dharco and Mountain Planning

Specatators

This event will be conducted within the Government COVID-19 restrictions at the time. This will likely mean a cap on spectators as well as the need to register your attendance. Stay tuned for more details to come

Volunteers

Events don’t happen on their own! We need your help. In the coming weeks we will start the call out for event volunteers. Gravity Enduro requires lots of hands on deck to get it happening and COVID means even more people power is needed. Consider helping out or asking friends/ family to assist. No volunteers = no event!

Volunteer registration OPENING SOON

COVID-Safe Event

You’re sick of hearing it… we know. But this event will be run a bit differently to accommodate the government restrictions at the time. Stay tuned for details closer to the event but be prepared for things to look and feel a bit different to what you may be used to at races.
