    Rocky Trail MTB Grand Prix Series - 4H+8H

    The Rocky Trail MTB GP Series is in it's second year now and we have added an 8 Hour endurance racing option to the original 4 Hour race.

    I'm a passionte mountain biker myself and work with Sydney-based MTB events organiser Rocky Trail Entertainment. It was really important to us to provide beginner racers with a relaxed and fun event atmosphere to catch the racing bug! We selected the tracks again to be interesting and exciting for the seasoned racers, and yet, doable and, most importantly, enjoyable for newbies.

    So this year you can again come on tour with us to some of the most popular MTB tracks in NSW & ACT:
    • Round 1 Awaba, NSW (Central Coast), Sat, 3 July - 4 + 8 hour race
    • Round 2 Yellomundee, NSW (near Richmond), Sun, 8 August - 4 hour race only (day after the 12H race)
    • Round 3 Wisemans Ferry, NSW (at Del Rio), Sat, 18 Sept - 4 + 8 hour race
    • Round 4 Mt Stromlo, ACT (Canberra's MTB mecca), Sat, 20 Nov - 4 + 8 hour race
