Latest Event Information

05/04/2018 Competitor Start List Now Available. For the vast majority of competitors, your category remains the same if you raced in Round 1. However, the new registration system has an age restriction to limit competitors to certain age categories. Some Male U15 competitors were racing in Male U17 in Round 1. This is permitted as competitors are permitted to compete in harder categories (but not drop down to easier categories). Therefore, the new system may have restricted you to Male U15 but if you raced Male U17 in Round 1, we have used this for Round 2. Round 2 is the final time you can change categories without points being affected for the series so please check carefully and email steve@wagravityenduro.org if you would like to change. Alternatively, let Amy know at the Race Village during check-in.

27/03/2018 Course Map now available Over 50% already sold…don’t miss out!

We want to support local suppliers and Tasty Edibles provide absolutely delicious and very affordable food and drinks at the Race Village Cafe located at Linga Longa Bike Park. As such, no food option will be provided by WAGE at this round. Please support Tasty Edibles and make some purchases!

26/03/2018 Whippets and general times updates

15/03/2018 A note on race entry – your race entry on Sunday will include shuttles. However, not every transition back up to the top will be a shuttle lift (this is Enduro after-all!) Shuttle lifts will be determined on race category similar to previous events. For example, Elite and Expert may have more ride-ups to do as compared to 50+ or U15. This will be finalised and published shortly.

08/03/2018 Registrations are now open! We have teamed up with the highly rated EventPlus to make an easier registration process for you. Families and sponsored riders will benefit greatly from the change with the ability to add competitors from the same account – no more additional emails! For individual competitors, its all smooth sailing. Additionally, your age is fixed to your racing category and registrations and categories will be published on the event page for easier viewing confirmation. We hope you enjoy this substantial change to the registration process and ALL events are currently open! To enter round 2 or future events, just click here

Camping and shuttles are available before the event and are organised by Linga Longa Mountain Bike Park. For camping and shuttle bookings and information, please head to www.lingalongabikepark.com/tickets Shuttles during the race on Sunday will be available and are included in the WAGE race entry price.

Linga Longa Bike Park

Giant Whippets U13

In 2018, Giant are sponsoring our littlest competitors at the event. They usually racea few hours before the main event or even the day before – to ensure safe racing for all.

At Linga Longa, U13’s will be racing 2 stages indepenant of the Main Event on Sunday. Competitors will be shuttled to the top, race a stage, are then collected at the bottom, shuttled to the top, and race the final stage. Presentations will commence approximately 1hr after the final competitor has finished his/her final stage. Thanks to Rock n Roll Mountain Biking, our U13’s will be chauffered and well-looked after by professional Mountain Biking leaders.

Course Map

When the time is right, the course map will be made available. We release the Course Map at a time to limit sneaky practice before the event to keep everyone on a level playing field.

For events at private locations, we will release as soon as possible. For events in public MTB areas, we usually release the Course Map on the Monday before the event weekend.

As usual, the Course Map is the intended race course, but is always subject to changing trail conditions, people flying over-the-bar’s, Act’s of God, Act’s of WAGE and peagravel density (or lack there of).

Linga Longa Bike Park

The excitement starts to build as you travel a short 20minute drive south of Balingup where rolling hills start to get bigger in anticipation of things to come. As you drive around the last bend, you are warmly greeted to an open hillside with glimpses of massive jumps, towering Pine trees and a large dam. Camping areas a-plenty, toilets, showers and an on-site cafe, what more could you want!? Oh, yes, how about shuttles??

These trails built for Enduro. Plenty of yee-har’s, fast descents, switchbacks, technical trail features and jumps galore, this is an event and location that really needs to be on your list of ‘places to ride’ in 2018.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I enter? Easy. Just click on the ‘ENTER NOW’ button located throughtout the website. This will take you to your registration portal. If you are new to the registration portal, a one-time profile will need to be filled out. Returning competitors simply enter their email address, select their event and arrive at the Race Village on race-day to collect your timing chip and raceplate.

How much does it cost? We keep our entry fees incredibly low. Entry fees vary based on your category but start from only $29 for the Under 13’s. Insurance selection and location can slightly cary the price, but we try to stay as consistent as possible.

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.

Can I shuttle between stages?  No. Anyone caught doing so will be automatically disqualified.

I missed registration! We can accept late registration online and on the day plus a $15 surcharge. Places are limited and may not be possible if the event is sold out.

Can I get a refund? From the Monday at 9am before the race weekend, refunds, transfers to other competitors or credits are not possible. Before Monday 9am, yes, we can offer a full refund minus 10% administration fees. 

PLACES ARE LIMITED TO 320  (exc. Giant Whippets U13).

ENTRIES MAY CLOSE BEFORE THE SCHEDULED CLOSING TIMES WHEN CAPACITY REACHED.
