The Goat Farm has played host to the inaugural 2015 MTBA National Gravity Enduro Series and with a myriad of trails, the enduro course designers are spoiled for choice every time this round falls into the calendar. A staple in the enduro diet, the Goat Farm was also Round 1 of the first WA Gravity Enduro Series in 2014 with 110 competitors. Pushing 200 competitors recently, we allow competitors to tackle the stages in any order to reduce queue times.

We always look forward to the challenges the Goat Farm throws at the organisers and the competitors!

Frequently Asked Questions

Where is the course map?

Gravity Enduro is all about riding the course with little to know 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.

Are shuttles permitted?

SHUTTLES ARE NOT PERMITTED AT ANY TIME from race briefing until the tag-off of your final stage. Any one caught will be disqualified.

How does the timing system work?

You are given a wrist band that you must wear on your right wrist. You will see a ‘timing box’ at the start gate and finish gate of each stage. ‘Tag-on’ and ‘tag-off’ at these timing boxes using your wrist band – similar to the Transperth Train service tagging system. Your tag records and stores the time on each timing box. We collect these up at the conclusion of the race and run it through our custom software to generate your race times.

To ensure no additional fees, return your wristband after the race. Lost wristbands will incur a $15 fee.

Can I get a refund or transfer an entry?

Less than 7 days from event – no. Refunds or transfers to other competitors or other races are not possible. Injury with a doctors note will be considered. We have booked in all necessary equipment based on your race entry at this stage.

More than 7 days from event – yes. We will refund your entry (minus 10% administration fees and charges).

 

I missed the cut-off time to enter!

Due to additional administration duties, a $10 surcharge is applicable for competitors who register after the cut-off time until the Friday @ 6pm before the race. Depending on the event, race day registrations may be possible and may incur a $15 late fee. Contact steve@wagravityenduro.org as soon as possible.
