ROUND THREE (3)
Pemberton Mountain Bike Park, Pemberton
A regular on the WA Gravity Enduro circuit, Pemberton Mountain Bike Park is nestled under towering Karri Trees right next door to the Pemberton Town Centre and local amenities.
The trails can vary considerably based on the time of year, and with this event taking place in May, expect loamy ‘hero-dirt’ with plenty of grip. Competitors also spend some time exploring the wider area, snapping up some local produce and enjoying the relaxed atmosphere of the region.
Official Practice Saturday, 23rd May 2021 10am – 2pm (medics on-site)
Race Date Sunday, 23rd May 2021
Race Briefings staggered from 8am
Race Starts following briefing
Race Finish approx 90min for Whippets to 4 hours for all stages
Presentations following return of all short course competitors (approx 10am) and following return of all long course competitors (approx 2pm).
NO SHUTTLING PERMITTED AT ANY TIME ON SATURDAY AND SUNDAY. This includes the internal access tracks and on the road. It is too dangerous having vehicles operating in the area alongside hundreds of mountain bikers. Please keep it fair for all and most importantly, safe for all.
Swimming Pool Road, Pemberton

08/05/2021 WA GRAVITY ENDURO ROUND 3 PEMBERTON – NOW OPEN – BUT READ BELOW!
After 3 years of operation, the event entry portal has now been removed from the website. With larger attendance now and a larger increase in behind-the-scenes admininistration, it has become very consuming to manage. Additionally, with the change from MTBA to Auscycling, we have the added burden of manually checking all licenses.
THE NEW EVENT ENTRY PORTAL IS AVAILABLE AT https://entryboss.cc/calendar/wage
An Australian Company with the added benefit checking Auscycling Licenses upon entry.
Added benefits include self-scratching (self removal) from the event with automated refund and an automated waiting list giving us all much needed flexibility.
We hope this makes for a quick and easy entry process especially for those who are managing multiple competitors.
As usual, there will be a one-time sign up and going forward, event entry should be very quick and easy.
If you have already entered Pemberton, an email is sitting in your inbox to re-enter through this portal. Future round entries will also be emailed shortly.
If you have any problems or concerns, please email firstname.lastname@example.org

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I enter? Easy. Just click on the ‘ENTER NOW’ button located throughout 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 and affordable 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.
I missed registration! We can accept late registration online and on the day plus a $10 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. Practise is a part of the event. If you injury yourself or damage your bike beyond repair during practise, we cannot offer a refund or transfer as services have already been organised and paid for based on your attendance.
