Champagne showers are on offer for the top 3 teams of each category. Something for everyone, we have a huge range of Team options available to ensure inclusiveness and competition for any Team in any stage of their mountain biking lifestyle.

Venue

Linga Longa Bike Park is one of the ultimate gravity-style mountain bike venues in Western Australia and is highly regarded as one of the best Mountain Bike Parks Australia-wide.

Paradise awaits with ample caravan parking and camping spots surrounding a beautiful swimming lake with a backdrop of stunning West Australian native bushland.

Feel free to setup the stove or head to the fully-stoked cafe and purchase a delicious, hearty meal. For more information, head to www.lingalongabikepark.com

For the safety and comfort of all attendees, dogs are not permitted. Mobile phone reception is ‘hit’n’miss’ at Race Village but can be improved higher up the main hill. Please direct questions regarding the Park to admin@lingalongabikepark.com

Every person (non-competitor, competitor, event crew) must sign the waiver prior to entry which can be found here.

Intermediate to Advanced riders will appreciate the challenges of the trails, but competitors with at least one year of mountain biking experience will be able to descend the trails. All technical trail features and gap jumps have ‘B’ lines (slower, easier line). Race Courses are designed for the Team Category selected. For example, the Industry Team is required to complete 7 challenging trails, whereas the Easy Enduro Team is only required to complete 3 of the easiest stages available. Team Category information is available below.

Course Map

On the Monday before an Event Weekend, the course map will be available here for viewing. The Course Map will contain your Category Start Times and Stages required to complete.

We aim to give you the Best Enduro Experience possible and work hard to provide the Best Value Event for your Money.

Organisation

Time required to bring together all facets of the Event.

Advertising

Facebook advertising, video reels and highlights, maps, website design, signage, Instagram feeds, YouTube clips take time and fees.

Sign-posted and Bunted Course

Arriving early to setup the course. This usually involves multiple people over hours or days ensuring bunting, signage and timing equipment are in place for easy navigation and fair racing.

Event Health Services

Your Entry Fee covers St John Ambulance Services being on-site for both Saturday and Sunday. We typically employ 4 x Technicians and engage with St John months in advance

Toilets

Typically, our Events exceed the venue existing facilities. Regional Services are engaged months in advance to deliver toilets. Hire costs continue to grow as Waste Management Fees continue to increase.

Race Village

It takes time to design the Race Village to enable our awesome Sponsors to arrive and setup in suitable locations to suite their needs. Careful attention to Parking, Pedestrians and Riders is needed for the safe and accessible movement of all attendees and event crew.

Applications and Insurances

Typically, several Stakeholders need to be engaged months in advance of any Event. We liaise with Local Governments, State Departments, Auscycling, Local Residents and Trail Custodians to act in the best interests of all parties while balancing a safe and exciting experience for our Community. Fees are required for Insurance and Event Applications.

Prizes, Gift Vouchers, Subsidies

At every Series round, we move $1 of your Entry Fee into our Enduro Pathway Program, donate $5 of your Entry Fee to Public Trails, offer more than $2,500 in Event Gift Vouchers to podium winners and offer $750 to our Elite Men and Women winners. We offer free entries to our Marshals, pay for professional services including multiple Photographers and Videographers and assist with fuel, food and accommodation costs for our Crew.

World's Best Timing System

Our Timing System is considered the World’s Best as used at the Enduro World Series. Yearly licensing, hardware and software upgrades are continuous. Additionally, we send our timing bands back to Germany as required for battery replacements at considerable expense.

Continued Development

Once the essential Event costs are accounted for, we continue to research new ways to improve Results, Live Broadcasts, Mobile Phone Apps, data presentation, website development, manage existing equipment and improve our systems with the aim for a better experience for Competitors, Spectators and our Crew.
