EVENT ENTRY

Premium Entries close Tuesday at midnight before race weekend. This gives us time to print custom raceplates and gives caterers time to organise food options.

Late Entries close Friday at 9pm before race weekend and attract a $15 late fee. Competitors cannot expect a custom raceplate and cannot expect food options to be accommodated for, but we’ll try out best!

LINGA LONGA

Voting as the best Enduro Experience by our riders in 2019, Linga Longa is the ultimate destination for the gravity-focused rider. Packing in several trails from the same trail head, offering a professional and fast shuttle experience and permanent cafe on-site packed with some of the most satisfying rider-fuel, Linga Longa is a riders paradise. Camping, showers and toilets, everything is available so you can focus on one thing – getting a huge amount of riding jammed in offering an enormous amount of diversity and progression options. It doesn’t get any better in WA!

FULLFACE HELMET MANDATORY.

            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 about the excitement of racing a 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.
