Pump & Flow Racing

Pump & Flow is Australia’s favourite pump track series!

What Is Pump’nFlow™ Racing?

MAKE EVERY SECOND COUNT!

It is time to merge the BMX world with the MTB world with 1 day of racing dedicated to Pump & Flow! 

Due to popular demand we are splitting the competition into two sessions (Junior and Senior) of action packed excitement. This will allow for more riders more fun.

With events coming to NSW, QLD and VIC this year, get your dose of adrenaline with the Pump & Flow™!

Whats the Format?


HOW DOES IT WORK?

Racers can clock in multiple race times throughout the day and the fastest group of racers in male and female classifications for juniors and seniors will progress through the final Pump & Flow Shootout Heat.

There will be 4 heats to determine the outright Male and Female winners. Race participants across a wide range of age groups can clock in multiple race times and the fastest group of racers in male and female classifications will progress through the final Shootout Heat. Each event will stipulate the size of the heats, so check out the race rules for Sugar Bag below – we are able to customise each race perfectly to the type of pump track we’re racing on!

And here’e the kicker – you will also race for rankings across age categories based on your fastest time throughout the day in additional male and female adult and junior age classifications!

  • First Session – Juniors 5 to U15
  • Second Session – Seniors U17+

Event Rules

  • Helmets must always be worn whilst using the pump track. Rocky Trail recommends the use of additional protective equipment including but not limited to knee and elbow pads and full fingered gloves.
  • single timing point will be clearly marked. The rider gets up to speed, time starts running as soon as the rider crosses the start / finish timing unit, time stops when the rider crosses the unit again.
  • Course will be marked. Riders must stay on the course. If riders shortcut the track, the rider’s run will not count and riders will be warned. A rider who regularly short cuts may be relegated to last place in the heat or final.

    All registered riders are welcome to have multiple runs to set their fastest times. Results will be posted live online.

      The finish will be judged by a panel. Ties will be awarded to the fastest qualifier.
