PEMBERTON

Kicking off 2019, we are seeking summer shelter in the cool Karri Forrest of Pemberton Mountain Bike Park. Being dry and loose at this time of year, we hope to bring you some new features which weren’t available in Winter of 2018. Plenty of accommodation opportunities and swimming areas around to soak up the Pemby vibes.

Pemberton Mountain Bike Park

A picturesque mountain bike park with a heap of extra activities to be had during your visit, The Pemberton Mountain Bike Park is a jewel hidden beneath towering Karri Trees deep in the south-west of the State.

Keeping cool in the warmer summer months, Pemberton is a brilliant location with fast flowy trails and some rocky sections thrown in for good measure.

Accommodation is a short wheelie from the trails with the neighbouring Pemberton Caravan Park being upgraded with new toilets and camp facilities, ‘glamping’ options, camping and caravaning. Plus the Pemberton Town Centre is a short walk or ride with many other accommodation options, food and drink and other facilities available.

We look forward to kicking off 2019 at 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 strive to keep our entry fees as affordable as possible. Entry fees vary based on your category and start from only $29 for the Under 13’s. Insurance selection and location can slightly vary 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 AND ENTRIES MAY CLOSE BEFORE THE SCHEDULED CLOSING TIMES WHEN FULL.
