ROUND FOUR (4)
The Orchard, Perth (formerly known as Golden Grove) Chittering
It was a long time between racing in Chittering but we were pumped and excited to bring the venue back on to the calendar in 2020. Before that, 2017 was the last visit!
A change on 2021 though will see the Race Village setup across the road in The Orchard Perth (formerly known as Golden Grove).
The trails boast just about every trail type a rider could ask for: raw and rough, creek crossing, off-camber amber, donwhill bombs, machine-sculptured jumps, timber fence crossings, timber long drops etc and the list goes on!

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.
