UPDATE: We are still doing our best to find any other backed up data to include in individual competitor’s stage times. There are clearly some stage times that exceed the normal stage times eg 30minutes+ or – which is simply a case of a rider returning to a stage or passing the finish first before the start (caused by WAGE moving timing beacon’s while trying to uncover the problem). Only individual riders will know how they were racing a stage – training with mates, cruising down enjoying the mud or actually racing. As such, the integrity of any overall results cannot be validated and we cannot draw conclusions from these stage times to assess overall winners – whether or not all stages were completed in individual categories. We are very disappointed with not having complete results from the weekend and sincerely apologise. We know some competitor’s were just happy to get out there in the mud with mates and enjoy the trails, and we know some competitor’s are very disappointed having trained and competed and not have results to reflect this. Needless to say, many lessons have been learned and we are busy preparing new procedures and implementing new technology to ensure the timing issue is not repeated, to improve communication with our volunteers and the improve communication with our riders. It is challenging to contact 300+ people across a large area but we feel after initial investigation and the use of mobile connectivity, this is possible. We are also investigating new ways we can more quickly get results back to Race Village so when a future problem arises, it can be addressed quickly. Over the 30 events WA Gravity Enduro has created, we can easily say every event has had a challenge or problem and it is never smooth sailing behind the scenes, but the goal is to ensure it doesn’t impact upon your Mountain Biking Experiences. The timing did impact upon your race at Pemberton and again, we are truly sorry.
We were pleased to be able to donate $1,200 to the Pemberton Mountain Bike Park on behalf of the competitors and donate more than $2,000 to Rock n Roll Mountain Biking who in-turn prepared competitors with a delicious meal. The great support offered by all competitors and spectators has also been a tremendous boost to the townsite of Pemberton which has been under pressure recently following State Government decisions. We are sure Pemberton was the greatest winner of this event.
We still have plenty on offer for 2018, including the new location at Dunsborough, the National Round and the secret final round 7. Regarding series points, we feel we have a good idea to overcome this and that idea is currently being tested and we will get back to you with a solution soon.
Welcome to Round 4 of the 2018 WA Gravity Enduro Series!
We return once again to the deep south west surrounded by majestic Karri Trees and home to the hero dirt that is Pemberton Mountain Bike Park. Pemberton, raining 1 day and drizzling the next. However, throughout our previous 4 years of racing there, its been anything but wet – so with that in mind, we expect a drenching!
There is usually plenty of accommodation nearby in local caravan and camping parks which are on the doorstep to the trails – expect your mountain biking appetite to be very well fed in Pemberton.

Giant Whippets U13
In 2018, Giant are sponsoring our littlest competitors at the event.
At Pemberton, U13’s will be racing 3 stages on Sunday morning. Competitors may be shuttled to the start (to be confirmed) but will then complete the race under their own power. Presentations will commence approximately 30mins after the final competitor has finished his/her final stage. Thanks to Rock n Roll Mountain Biking, our U13’s will be well-looked after by professional Mountain Biking leaders.
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).
Pemberton Mountain Bike Park
Another spectacular location for Mountain Biking, Pemberton Mountain Bike Park is just a stroll from the Pemberton Caravan Park and Town Centre. This is a fantastic weekend away for most competitors and their friends and families with a solid weekend of Mountain Biking available.
We are looking to mix-it-up with an exciting development in the works for Saturday (stay tuned) with some epic racing underway on Sunday. Nestled among Karri Trees, this really is a spectacular Park with fluffy loamy soil, some tricky rock gardens and some fast descents.
We really hope to return here in 2019 pending State Government decisions…so make sure you head to this event and support Pemberton!

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.
