Kalamunda Mountain Bike Park is one of the most popular mountain bike areas in Western Australia with many challenging trails to suit everyone from green trails for beginners to the black diamond south-shore style riding at Luvin’ Shovels, Kalamunda is infamous for its dry trails and ‘marble-like’ conditions with exposed pea-gravel ensuring you stay on the berm and avoid off camber turns. Some new alignments off Mt Gunjin will keep it fresh for the riders with spectators enjoying excellent viewing where multiple trails converge at the powerlines. With the race village NOW AT MUNDARING WEIR HOTEL, it will again be a fun celebration to open the 2017 WA Gravity Enduro Series!
CHANGE OF RACE VILLAGE VENUE – NOW MUNDARING WEIR HOTEL!
Huge thanks to Mundaring Weir Hotel for working with us to locate the Race Village in their huge entertainment area! This will give us heaps of room for sponsors and promoters and will be a great backdrop for presentations.
PLUS! SHUTTLES! Due to the change of venue, we are providing shuttles from the Mundaring Weir Hotel to the top of Mt Gunjin. Once you have finished your race, you will then be shuttled back to Mundaring Weir Hotel. Elite and Expert will be racing back. Note: shuttles will not run between stages – they are to carry you to and from the race village only.
Registrations now open! Don’t forget we have two new racing categories for 2017 – Male U17 and Female Masters 50+ and for this round in Kalamudna, Handcycles are welcome!
If you finished in the top 10 of Male Expert in 2016, you should move to Male Elite. If you finished in the top 15 of Male Sport in 2016, you should move to Male Expert.
Finally, Full-Face Helmets are compulsory for all WA Gravity Enduro racing. The only exceptions may be Pemberton and Margaret River subject to MTBA approval.

Frequently Asked Questions
Where is the course map?
Gravity Enduro is all about riding the course with little to no knowledge of the course. This helps create a more level playing field and better tests your mountain biking skills. We usually release the course map on the Monday before the weekend’s race.
Do I have to go to race briefing?
Yes. Race briefing is mandatory and occurs at the race village 15 minutes before race start. It is essential that you get a full report on the course (and any potential changes), safety requirements and to ensure everyone starts the race from the same location.
Are shuttles permitted?
Unless explicitly written and communicated, shuttles are not permitted at any time during the race. Failure to comply will result in disqualification.
How does the timing system work?
You are given a wrist band that you must wear on your right wrist. You will see a ‘timing box’ at the start gate and finish gate of each stage. ‘Tag-on’ and ‘tag-off’ at these timing boxes using your wrist band – similar to the Transperth Train service tagging system. Your tag records and stores the time on each timing box. We collect these up at the conclusion of the race and run it through our custom software to generate your race times. To ensure no additional fees, return your wristband after the race. Lost wristbands will incur a $15 fee.
Can I get a refund or transfer an entry?
Less than 7 days from event – no. Refunds or transfers to other competitors or other races are not possible. Injury with a doctors note will be considered. We have booked in all necessary equipment based on your race entry at this stage. More than 7 days from event – yes. We will refund your entry (minus 10% administration fees and charges).
Missing registration cut-off!
Due to additional administration duties, a $15 surcharge is applicable for competitors who register in the Late Registration time period. Depending on the event, race day registrations may be possible but are limited and will incur a $25 late fee. Contact email@example.com as soon as possible.
