Important race info

About The Venue

This year the Event Hub will be located within the Karingal Scout Park which allows for amply room for parking and setting up marquees for ALL. Access is via Mount Cotton Road turning into Karingal Road. Follow all the way to the end of the road into the Scout Park entry gate and then follow the Orange signs to the activity area known as Robs Kitchen – approx 1km into the park and located on the boundary line of Mt Cotton trail network, approx 300 mtr below the finish of all the tracks.. This will be the location of REGO, Food, Coffee, Toilets, and Music.

With the volume of participants attending this weekend the Scout Park provides more parking and safety for riders. We do not recommend parking on West Mount Cotton Road.

Track Guide

This weekend 3 Fox Superflow tracks are operating both days with the added PRO track on Sunday only.
