Race Course

It’s pedal to the metal as racers lay it on the line for the first round of the Gravity Series.

This one will come down to pure pedalling power and cornering prowess with racers taking to the start half way down the hill at Bunny Walk Station. Straight out of the gate there will be some long traverses on the mid slopes of the Kosciuszko Flow Trail.

Things tighten up though as we take a left into Woodys which will test the racers fitness before entering the River Rapidsย section of the Cannonball DH. From here racers will head downhill on the Village Loop before the well earnt gravity section of Home Run.
