FAQ's

Below are some of the common questions we get, if you cant find what you're after jump on our FAQ page here

Are we allowed to shuttle?

Shuttling is not allowed at Superflow events unless it is specified as a shuttled event such as Mt Buller or Falls Creek.

You can assist other riders by pushing them or walking thier bike up. Towing with a rope is not allowed but we do sometimes grant exemptions for very young (and tired) riders.

Do I need to be part of an organisation to race?

You don't need to be a member of any cycling association to race the Fox Superflow®️. Some offer great insurance packages which are worthwhile checking out.

Do I need insurance?

You are responsible to cover yourself for the race.

Flip Insurance is a new Event Partner for Fox Superflow® and Rocky Trail cross-country events; you can find some more information here: https://rockytrailentertainment.com/flip-insurance/

Can I restart my run if I have an issue?

Yes you can restart your run as long as you do not cross the finish line.

DO NOT walk back up the trail under any circumstance, please exit the trail and return to the start via the designated liaison.

Can we ride in pairs or in a train?

You can ride in a train if you like, just allow space between each rider at the start, during technical sections and at the finish line.

How does timing work?

Your race plate has a timing chip unique to you and your time starts as soon as you cross the start map (usually 20-30m from start gate) and finishes when you cross the finish line.

My child is racing can I ride with them?

When you pick up your race plates ask our team for a "Marshal" plate. This will allow you to accompany your child on trails.

How much time do you give between riders

We have start marshal's on all our stages to make sure that everyone gets a clean run at the track. If you think you'll need a bigger gap either before or after you just let them know.

Is a full face helmet and protection mandatory?

Full Face helmets and protection with the exception of Superflow® Pro stages are not mandatory however it is highly recommend that all riders wear one at all times.
