NOTE: Linga Longa Bike Park is on PRIVATE PROPERTY. Trespassers will be dealt with to the full extent of the law. Do not trespass for legal reasons and because it jeopardises any potential future mountain bike event.

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.

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!

NOTE: Big Pine is subject to change. Due to the recent work on this trail, it may need some time to ‘bed’ and become more compact. We do not want to risk damaging the amazing work that has gone into this trail. Pending weather conditions this week, a decision will be made on race-day if an alternative stage will be used.

Open face helmets permitted! Thanks to MTBA, we can now confirm that open-face style helmets are permitted for Margaret River.

BUT, only as a condition if you agree with the following waiver. If you do not agree with the following waiver, full-face helmets are mandatory.

Additional Rider Liability Waiver Information for WA Gravity Enduro Round 4 – Margaret River, 17th July 2016

WA Gravity Enduro strives to implement the necessary insurance conditions to promote and prioritise safe mountain bike racing for all volunteers, marshals, organisers, spectators and competitors to the best of our ability and to reflect this, WA Gravity Enduro must now enforce full-face helmets as an extra level of safety for our competitors when racing in the Gravity Enduro format. In addition to the MTBA Event Waiver found here and the WA Gravity Enduro Terms and Conditions found here, competitors are permitted to wear their Australian Standards open-face style helmet when competing in the Gravity Enduro race format for Round 4 of the WA Gravity Enduro 2016 Series in Margaret River on the 17th July 2016 only. Competitors who choose this level of safety equipment do so at their own risk as their Mountain Bike Australia insurance cover may not apply if an injury occurs as a result of facial, neck, spinal damage or similar injury. Competitors must determine their own level of safety equipment based on their own assessed level of mountain biking skill and experience in racing. At no time can Mountain Bike Australia, WA Gravity Enduro, sponsor, supporter, competitor, volunteer, marshal, organiser, spectator or any other affiliated person or entity be sued for damages as a result of injury if a competitor chooses to wear an open-face style helmet for Round 4 of the WA Gravity Enduro 2016 Series in Margaret River on the 17th July 2016.

16/06/2016

‘The Pines’ in Margaret River has undergone a major transformation over recent years with logging nearby. However, MRORCA and DPAW have done an amazing job working side-by-side to construct new trails in the area that will surely test your skill level and your fitness!

Due to the shorter nature of these trails, we have incorporated a different racing format where multiple attempts are permitted, and your fastest time is used for the overall placing calculations. CAUTION – you must tag-on and you must tag-off on each attempt. Failure to tag will cause your stage time to be corrupted.

Pedal, pedal, pedal!

Pemberton is one of the most picturesque courses on the WA Gravity Enduro calendar. Weaving through majestic Marri Trees, competitors are presented with loamy sticky soil in the cooler to wetter months but it can dry out significantly in the summer. In 2015, fire threatened the cancellation to Round 1 with the large Northcliffe fires threatening Pemberton Townsite. Fortunately, the race proceeded which saw some of the worlds best riders compete. Sam Hill, Mike Jones, Deon Baker, Chris Kovarik, Jordan Prochyra, Claire Buchar and Claire Garcia-Webb battled it out in the Elite categories with Sam Hill and Claire Buchar winning Male and Female Elite categories respectively. Hosting Pemberton in mid-April 2016 could see some more welcomed cooler weather and fast racing. It is always considered a great weekend trip and we look forward to the WAGE Warriors battling it out!

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.
