We are very excited to head back to Linga Longa Bike Park for the 2017 WA Gravity Enduro State Championships!

This event is not to be missed – be a part of the inaugural event which sets the foundations for Enduro State Championships in Western Australia! Racing is simplified compared to the 2017 Series in order to provide a level playing field to clearly see the 2017 State rankings. 6 special-stages for all categories taking in some favourites including the new ‘Devin’s Descent into Madness.’

Additionally, we are including 1 x shuttle lift that you can use strategically during the race – use straight away to perhaps get a clear run, use at the end as the legs get tired or just use it when you feel like it! Trailer to be 50% full before departing shuttle area.

No MTBA insurance? No problem! All competitors who enter the WAGE State Championships will be automatically covered by Mountain Bike Australia (further information available here). There will be no additional day-license fees applicable during Saturday’s practice or Sunday’s race.

And our awesome WAGE Wippets (U13)! A 2 stage race on Saturday beginning at 11am. You will be shuttled to the trail head, race down one stage then must ride to the top to complete your final stage. Presentations to follow.

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.
