The WA MTB Community will be on show with coaching, competitions, demonstrations, presentations, children’s entertainment, food and drink stalls and a huge Race Village showcasing the WA MTB Industry

PLUS, Enduro Racing!

This event is Round One of the WA Gravity Enduro Series 2022 and will also be an Enduro World Series Qualifier.

If you love Mountain Biking and Adventure with mates, this is the event for you!

Important changes from 2021

1) There are two capped shuttle departure times of 8:30am at 11:30am. First in, best dressed - make your selection through the Event Entry

2) MASKS ARE MANDATORY on Shuttle Buses at all times.

3) Please maintain a 1.5m physical distance within Race Village. Sanitise your hands upon entry and spectators please check-in with the COVID Safe App on arrival.

4) We expect more than 500 attendees and less than 2,500 at this event and will follow the necessary WA Health Department advice and COVID Plan. This event is exempt from Proof of Vaccination due to being a Sporting Event. However, we advocate strongly that all attendees should be fully vaccinated for their safety and the protection of our Community.

5) A Liquor License area will not be implemented due to the challenges of requiring and managing Proof of Vaccination.

Venue

The event takes in the best riding opportunities of Dwellingup. With the heart of the weekend at Race Village in Dwellingup, a hive of activity happen on and around the amazing Pump track facility. However, competitors and spectators are spoilt with dedicated shuttle transport to the amazing mountain bike trails of Murray Valley, about 15mins away. 

Direction and Maps here.

Course

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 Full Enduro (elite) competitors are required to complete 7 challenging trails plus a Saturday Pro Stage, whereas the Whippets U13 are only required to complete 3 of the easier stages available. 

The Murray Valley Trails are a very popular destination and if you wish to avoid the crowds of race weekend, be sure to take a visit earlier before the event, particularly if you are not very familiar with the trails.

The Murray Valley Trail Network boasts many machine-shaped features and berms but also sport some rocky features and technical challenges. The excellent elevation of the trails offer nice long runs. Trees and natural bush get right up alongside the edge of the trail so when your speed increases, be sure to watch out for those immovable Jarrah Trees!

 

Course Grading

Technical Ability – Expert

Physical Rating – 2 out of 4

This is the approximate Course Grade for the most difficult category.

– do not park on the Dwellingup oval.

Always drive responsibly and carefully, there are many children and families in the area.

Spectators or competitors are welcome to drive to the Murray Valley Trails, however, you will be charged a Park Entry fee at the gate through DBCA. Follow the signs to Murray Valley Trails and park on the verge ensuring adequate manoeuvrability of all other vehicles. The dedicated shuttle road will be closed to all vehicles during the event.

Spectators

Spectators are welcome to jump on the Shuttle Bus with the riders and head to the Murray Valley Trails (when available) for delivery to the top of the hill at The Roost.

You can then descend the trails catching the action as you go, but always give way to riders who will be descending the trail at high speed.

When you see or hear a rider coming, very quickly move off the trail and stay at least 2 metres clear of riders and always stay behind course bunting tape and signage.

Always be aware of snakes, bring adequate hydration, plenty of sun protection and wear good walking shoes – trails can be treacherous in wet and dry conditions. 

Spectators can jump back on the shuttle bus at The Roost or the Shuttle Collection Bays at the bottom of the hill for return back to Dwellingup. 

Shuttles

Riders have the opportunity to practise on Saturday by purchasing a Shuttle Entry. Riders are collected from Race Village in Dwellingup and taken to the top of the Murray Valley Trails Network aka ‘The Roost.’ From there, they head down their race stages and get collected from the bottom for Shuttle lifts back up the hill!

We have two capped Saturday Shuttle Times to spread the riders across the day ensuring everyone gets plenty of time and reduces the boring queue.

Saturday Practise Shuttle Times leaving Dwellingup are 8:30am and 11:30am which can be booked as part of Event Entry.

Shuttles return to Race Village on demand from the Shuttle Collection queue at the trails.

On Sunday, riders will again lead to Race Village in Dwellingup for their race briefing before jumping on the Shuttle Bus to the trails. Race briefing is mandatory and you will need to collect and return your timing chip.

    GOAT FARM, PERTH

    The first WA Gravity Enduro kicked off at the Goat Farm in 2014 and we love returning to this very challenging venue. 

    The venue is tightly compact and spectators have excellent opportunities to walk across an accessible firetrack watching riders cross in-front of them diving into some very challenging features.

    Parking is extremely limited here. Do not block driveways on Greenmount Rise.

    Course

    In 2021, the network saw its biggest ever investment which has turned the previously tired trails into an attractive and challenging network with National focus.

    From compact machine-berms to wild rocky sections, the Goat Farm is a popular event for competitors and spectators being so close to Perth.

    Grading

    Technical Ability – Expert

    Physical Rating – 2

    This is the approximate Course Grade for the most difficult category (Full Enduro)

    More information about Course Grading.

    Accommodation

    Being a short drive from the Perth CBD, there are plenty of accommodation options nearby. Camping at the Goat Farm is not permitted.

    Parking

    Parking is extremely limited at the Goat Farm. In 2022, we will aim to spread Sunday racing more across the day to further stagger the competitors in an effort to ease parking pressure. Additionally, we will aim to open more off-road parking areas around Race Village.

    Never block driveways on Greenmount Rise. Rangers will be in force issuing fines for Parking Infringements.

    As usual, carpool where possible and ride to the venue if possible. 

    Spectators

    SPECTATORS – ALWAYS STAY OFF TRAILS AND GIVE RIDERS RIGHT OF WAY.

    Dogs

    Do not bring your dog if:

    – it does not like noisy, busy environments

    – it barks at people and bikes

    – it does not play well with others.

    NEVER let your dog off lead at anytime at our events and always clean up after your dog.

    ALWAYS KEEP YOUR DOG ON A LEAD.

    PEMBERTON

    A regular on the WA Gravity Enduro circuit, Pemberton Mountain Bike Park is nestled under towering Karri Trees right next door to the Pemberton Town Centre and local amenities.

    The trails can vary considerably based on the time of year, and with this event taking place in May, expect loamy ‘hero-dirt’ with plenty of grip. Competitors also spend some time exploring the wider area, snapping up some local produce and enjoying the relaxed atmosphere of the region

    Course

    The term ‘hero-dirt’ is familiar with Pemberton due to its cooler soils under towering trees. However, there is a real mix of trail from the rowdy Wahoo offering rocky options to the refurbished Cool Runnings and Relentless Blue offering fantastic flow. The variety in trail makes it an excellent Enduro network.

    Grading

    Technical Ability – Advanced

    Physical Rating – 2

    This is the approximate Course Grade for the most difficult category (Full Enduro)

    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.
