The Pines Margaret River has seen significant transformation over the past few years with exciting and challenging new additions with thanks to MRORCA and our sponsor, Dave Willcox of Common Ground Trail Construction. The teams in the area do an amazing job creating exciting mountain biking opportunities in a flat area. The huge support always offered by MRORCA is always on show and once again, WA Gravity Enduro will be teaming up with MRORCA to create another ‘Double Header’ weekend! Gravity Enduro racing will take place on Sunday and the weekend is a great treat for competitors and spectators with plenty on offer.

As always, Wharncliffe Mill Bush Retreat is on the doorstep of the trail network offering easy and affordable accommodation.

You must be signed up and logged in to enter this event.

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 steve@wagravityenduro.org as soon as possible.
