Golden Grove is a private citric orchard on the perched on the foothills of the Avon Valley National Park producing some steep terrain for mountain biking. Making the most of the area, multiple tight off-camber turns keep the riders on edge as they negotiate raw trails simply defined by bunting. The long fast straight buzzing past orange orchards is certainly a highlight and tests your speed and commitment before tagging off at the bottom of the valley. Be sure to purchase the beautiful fresh orange juice before, during and after your race for maximum thirst-quenching! Not only will Golden Grove be in play, but we also race some special stages at Three Chillies Farm! We are privileged to host this special event only made possible with thanks to these private trails – surely one not to be missed!

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 firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
