First Fox Superflow® Ignites Narooma Trails

Close to 350 riders descended upon Narooma for the inaugural Fox Superflow®, marking the much-awaited debut of the all-new Narooma Trail Network in the Bodalla State Forest. Endorsed by the local Narooma MTB Club and supported by the Eurobodalla Shire Council, Rocky Trail Entertainment hosted a weekend filled with adrenaline-pumping competition and a shared love for mountain biking. Competitors had travelled from as far as Omeo, Albury and Newcastle as well as Canberra.

With sunshine gracing the South Coast, riders from all skill levels tackled the purpose-built trails, showcasing a diverse range of technical challenges and thrilling descents. The untimed climbs provided opportunities for camaraderie and breathtaking coastal views, while the timed stages tested riders’ speed and technical prowess.

Over the course of the weekend, fierce competition unfolded across various categories. Seasoned racers pushed their limits, while newcomers to the scene experienced the joy of racing in a supportive and inclusive atmosphere. The electric atmosphere was further amplified by enthusiastic spectators who cheered on the riders as they navigated the challenging yet rewarding courses.

The fastest man on course was Wollongong’s Jarrad Davis who won the Elite category and the race outright with the quickest race time of 8min35.9. With a gap of 4.7 seconds, Tomakin gun Morgan Fitzgerald claimed second place with the fastest run on the Fox track. Duncan Ledger from Canberra came in third with 8min43.3.

A whopping 99 racers under 17 year old riders across U13, U15 and U17 categories unleashed their talent on the trails with many riders from the local club and from across the region taking the advantage of racing their home trails.

Over 30 women were at the start and in the Elites Connor Mielke from Omeo VIC clocked in the fastest time in 9min34 ahead of Katy Wolley from Wollongong and Sonya McNee from Canberra. The fastest local racer was Lee Collimore from Kianga winning the Vets 30+ category in 11min07.7 with Natalie Anderson from Batemans Bay taking the Masters 40+ in 10min23.6.
