It’s time to go chainless for the final round of the Thredbo Gravity Series!

Chainless Champs will see all competitors remove their chain before pumping and holding speed down a 400m vertical race course from the top of the Gunbarrel Express to the Valley Terminal base station. With overall points on the line, Chainless Champs will feature a whole lot of banter from the sidelines and many tactics to determine who will come out as the first ever Thredbo Gravity Series Champion.

Bring it on….

Race Course

The Chainless Champs will feature the ideal race course for this style of event.

Starting at the top of the Gunbarrel Express Chairlift, riders will drop into Thredbo’s new green trail, Easy Street. Easy Street features deep berms, fast straight sections & loose gravel fire road. This will then meet with the middle slopes of the Kosciuszko Flow Trail, where riders will have to think about tactics to ensure they can hold speed on the long traversing sections and use the rollers and jumps to their advantage.

This gruelling race course will test riders strength, stamina & bike handling skills!
