QLD Series: Wrapping up 2023

With the 6th race at Nerang MTB Park the Fox Superflow® wrapped up its 2023 Series.

We would like to thank our sponsors and destination partners for their amazing support.

Most of all, we dedicate this Series to the almost 1,000 #rockytrailracers who brought it to life. With over 1,800 race starts this was the biggest one yet in the Sunshine State!

The Action:

The Fox Superflow® Series was established by Rocky Trail Entertainment in 2012 and has evolved into the biggest gravity enduro series in Australia. The events span along the East Coast with Rockhampton the northernmost hosting venue and the Gippsland and Melbourne Regions as well as the VIC Alpine High Country being the growing region in the South. This year the event series in Queensland alone has had almost 1,000 individual racers take part in the “Race the way you Ride” action with 1,900 race starts.

What we and our racers love is that this event format provides a strong social component. Riders are able to take their time during the transition to the next timed gravity section. The event has been designed specifically to engage riders of different ages, skill levels and racing preferences. A massive 30-40%+ of the field are juniors under 17 years of age and we see a huge uptake in the 40+ categories (another third of the field). Generally, 10-15% eBikers take part and the events also resonate with female racers – many junior talents are coming through and the 40+ racers have been smashing it too. We love it when the Elites and Pros come along and punch out fast times – to all of our racers:

Thanks for an epic Fox Superflow® Season Queensland, and thanks for everyone pulling shapes and ripping trails in the last round!
