ROUND EIGHT (8)

Goat Farm Mountain Bike Park, Greenmount (Perth)

The first event of WA Gravity Enduro kicked off at the Goat Farm in 2014 and we love returning to this very unforgiving venue. Although relatively short, the trails are ‘tough as nails’ and ensure competitors are focussed on the job at hand, with little room for error. From compact machine-berms to wild and rocky sections, the Goat Farm is a popular event for competitors and spectators being so close to Perth.

PLUS! Paul Neve and the team from Three Chillies Trail Design and Construction has been weaving their magic and we are blessed with new trails in 2021!

        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 $10 late fee. Competitors cannot expect a custom raceplate and cannot expect food options to be accommodated for.

        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.
