|Sugar Bag MTB Trails, Queensland, Australia|
The Shimano MTB GP’s are 'seriously fun' races where for podium chasers can line up with Australia’s elites and experienced amateur endurance racers plus casual racers will have a blast too!
Situated in the middle of Caloundra the Sugarbag Mountain Bike Trails are a perfect location to stage Rocky Trail’s first Shimano MTB GP on the Sunshine Coast: an amazing array of trails, a dedicated local club with the Coloundra Off Road Cycling Association (CORCA) plus a council committed to ongoing investment into the sport of Mountain Biking – you will love it as much as we do, we’re sure!
With a busy trail network featuring lots of timber features, log roll overs, sweeping berms and surprising pinchy climbs riders will need to be on their game. The course has been designed to provide key overtaking sections but you will need to be quick and strategic. This location will be extremely popular as the trail network is well known - these trails have had minimal racing before now, so let's put it on the Rocky Trail Racing Map in 2020!
If you haven’t raced a Shimano MTB GP and you are about to have you’re first #rockytrailracer experience… it won’t be your last, we’re sure! - Race for four (GP4) or seven (GP7) hours solo, in relay pairs or teams of three. There are age-group and eBike categories. Expect less of a winners-only-focused competition, but a positive and inclusive experience for all racers.
With temporary COVID-19 event rules active, we have a participant limit in place - please check the event website for all the details. Competitors must sign up online. This event is tracking all participants and any non-racing spectator or supporter must register online for an event accreditation at no charge.
This is XC lap racing at its best! Bring the whole family for the perfect riding and racing day trip!
