Thredbo Super Enduro

logo

The Thredbo Super Enduro is an electrifying new event showcasing the diversity of riding on offer in the Thredbo Mountain Bike Park. February 25-26, riders take on the mountain to clock their best times on all three gravity trails in a five hour ride period.

Riders will compete individually or in a team with the challenge of racing all three of Thredbo’s famous gravity trails - the Thredbo All-Mountain, Kosciuszko Flow and Cannonball Downhill. The five hour window gives riders the chance to lock in their perfect run and best time on each trail with no limit on the amount of runs a rider can do within the five hours. Riders must post a minimum of one time on each course to be eligible for a result. Once results are compiled, the fastest combined times for individual entrants and team entries will be awarded the winner. Individual riders have the added challenge of using only one bike across the three varied trails this ensures the most skilled and diverse rider will come out on top. With the crown of being the first Thredbo Super Enduro Champion and a stack of cash and prizes up for grabs there is plenty to ride for.

Trails ElevationTrails

trail1

Thredbo’s signature trail, descending 600m vertically through the tree-lined Supertrail slopes. Cannonball tests riders with off-camber roots, rock drops, jumps, wall-ride and other technical features that the gravity specialists dream about. Recent upgrades include more fall-line added along with some big jumps in the mix for the freeriders. With the rough nature of the Cannonball Downhill, riders are going to have to put some thought into their bike setup.

trail2

Starting at the top of the Snowgums Chairlift, the Kosciuszko Flow Trail is 4.5km of impressive flowing single-track with huge berms and rollers to keep the flow going making it a blast for riders from top to bottom. The steady gradient gives riders a mellower ride, but still provides the adrenalin rush of downhill riding. With no technical features or rough terrain to concur, the Flow trail is designed for a bike with 4” to 5” of suspension that would also be the smart choice for individual riders looking for the most suitable bike to race on all three trails.

trail3

Starting at 1800m above sea level, riders will be taken on 7km of epic alpine single-track. Descending over 450m vertical through the cruiser ski slopes and thick forest areas before being dealt with a gruelling 1km hill climb traversing back to the Supertrail lopes. The final decent brings riders back into the event village finishing arena at the base of the Kosciuszko Express. Although not as steep as the Flow Trail, it offers intermediate and advanced riders plenty of variety and line choice.
