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.

Goat Farm MTB Park

Venue Location

Description

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.

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.

This venue is considered one of the easiest venues on the calendar and is a great introduction for new competitors and a great way to ease into a big season ahead.

Shuttles and Assistance

No shuttles are permitted during practise or racing. Failure to comply is disqualification.

It is not permitted to push, tow or assist in any way a competitor during practise, stage racing or during stage transition. Exceptions include disabled, very young or injured competitors at the sole discretion of the Commissaire.

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. 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 remember – racing riders always have right of way! They travel fast and collisions may result in serious injury. Friendly dogs are permitted but must be on a lead at all times.

Spectators are welcome to walk up the side of trails but please ensure you are behind course bunting at all times and at least 2m off the trail when riders are descending. Look for Spectator points indicated on the Course Map for viewing opportunities.

Always be aware of snakes and other wildlife, bring adequate hydration and wear good walking shoes. Please avoid making shortcuts through the bush and only walk on the side of the trails where it is safe to do so.

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.

The essentials:

  • Full Face Helmets Mandatory
  • Auscycling Insurance Mandatory
  • No headphones, no singlets, no thongs
  • Mechanical’s are a part of racing. Always proceed to finish the stage by taking your SIAC past the finish beacon. A competitor carrying another person’s SIAC is instant disqualification.
  • Competitors stopping to assist an injured rider are permitted a stage re-attempt, but must confirm with a marshal.

Rulebook Available here 

We aim to provide the best value Enduro Experience possible. Your entry fees cover practise, racing and services over two days.

2023 1 Margs-Duns

ROUND 1

The launch of the 10th year of the WA Gravity Enduro Series returns to the iconic south-west region overflowing with quality trails so close to Margaret River and Dunsborough. This two-day Enduro event is an exciting twist on typical racing (Saturday practise and Sunday racing) and takes place across two venues. 

 

Yep – you will be pedalling your little legs off! But, the flow of The Pines and the short and fast trails of Dunsborough will allow competitors from all stages in their mountain biking lifestyle to come out an have a rad Enduro time.

 

Competitors are welcome to race a single day but no Series points awarded. This is a two-day race so riders will need to ensure all stages are completed across both days. Presentations will take place on Sunday following racing in Dunsborough.

Day 1 – Margaret River

Venue Location

Description

Wooditjup Trails (aka The Pines) in Margaret River is managed by Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions in conjunction with the Margaret River Off-Road Cycling Association (MRORCA).

Recent redevelopment and the addition of new trails is an exciting and refreshing upgrade to the network. Situated just to the north of the Margaret River townsite, it is a popular destination for weekend riders.

The trails are pre-dominantly machine made, short with gentle grades providing smooth flow but plenty of pedalling will be needed. However, don’t be too relaxed as there are some welcome rocky features and big-kickers in place! Riders are often found looking up at the towering trees offering plenty of shelter over the trails.

We look forward to once again donate funds back to the trails for ongoing sustainability.

Grading

Technical Ability – Intermediate
Physical Rating – 2

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

It is not permitted to push, tow or assist in any way a competitor during practise, stage racing or during stage transition. Exceptions include disabled, very young or injured competitors at the sole discretion of the Commissaire.

Accommodation

With most riders taking up the two-day challenge and being from Perth and surrounds, Dunsborough may be the better Saturday night option. However, there are many Airbnb options, caravan and camp sites in and around Margaret River and Dunsborough. As always, get in quick to avoid disappointment as our events tend to bring about 1,000 people to the areas.

Parking

Parking is readily available along the existing fireroads in The Pines for free. As usual, park tightly together and do not block the trails or gates and ensure emergency access at all times.

Spectators

Spectators remember – racing riders always have right of way! They travel fast and collisions may result in serious injury. Friendly dogs are permitted but must be on a lead at all times.

Spectators are welcome to walk up the side of trails but please ensure you are behind course bunting at all times and at least 2m off the trail when riders are descending. Look for Spectator points indicated on the Course Map for viewing opportunities.

Day 2 – Dunsborough

Venue Location

Description

Dunsborough, a short 30min drive from Margaret River, has mountain bike trails integrated with the local Dunsborough and Districts Golf Course (DDGC). DDGC is an excellent venue and has been hosting us on their golf course for many years. With so many accommodation options available nearby and being on the doorstep to the Dunsborough town centre, the location is perfect for families and friends making the most of the weekend with plenty to do for everyone.

We look forward to once again donate funds back to the trails for ongoing sustainability.

There are multiple carparks around Dunsborough and DIstricts Country Club available for free.

Overflow parking is permitted under the trees behind race village. No vehicles permitted on the golf course. Parking is extremely limited at Endicott Carpark. Do not park in residential areas or block driveways – Rangers are aware of the event and will be patrolling.

Thanks to the Dunsborough Primary School, parking is once again available in their carpark. Please ensure no rubbish is left behind.

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