Race the Fox Superflow sealed by Stan’s in 2018 – each race is a standalone event and you can collect points for the series ranking! We’ll kick it off at Stromlo Forest Park – launching the Fox Superflow with one of the most popular race tracks and destinations in …. like ever! Check out the website for all series venues and dates:
Almost all events require riders to ride to the starts on their bikes and it that way the series offers a big variety of trails. All our trails can be as tough as you want them to be – there are always different line choices and generally, the faster and the harder you go, the more challenging they get. We specifically pick our venues to meet those requirements.
No start order, no worries
