Weather information

Firstly, the event is going ahead. Rain is expected to be easing throughout Saturday, Sunday should shape up to be a great race day. It’s not going to be cold 17-26 degC. The Rocky Trail crew marked the trails this week on Wednesday and the trails were super-dry. We had the club committee with us who confirmed that Fox (Rock & Roller) and Stan’s (Booker) trails will actually benefit from the rain. We will monitor the Lazer track (KO) and depending on the amount of rain and conditions on Saturday morning, we may move the start to below the road gap, which can get very slippery in the wet. We will let you know at the rego desk.

Location & Tracks:

Jolly Nose MTB Park at Queens Lake State Forest – Spring Creek Rd, Bonny Hills

Please note, the main “Wizard” car park at Jolly Nose has patchy phone reception.

New: GASGAS Electroflow™

Awesome to have GASGAS on board for our Electroflow™ eBike-specific classification! These bikes have just hit the Australian market – they have Spanish roots and are part of the Austrian-based Pierer Mobility Group (which Rocky Trail’s Austro-Australian Founders secretly love!), where the technology that goes into the big line-up of models benefits of the state-of-the-art manufacturing facility right in the heart of Europe.

These bikes are a bit CHEEKY, they’re all about FUN, ROOSTING, they’re ready shred and ROCK – we reckon they’ll fit right into our Rocky Trail community vibe, literally boosting the GASGAS Electroflow™ into its next chapter of the Superflow® history.

You’ll be able to demo and test ride these awesome bikes at MANY events across NSW, VIC, QLD and the ACT, of course! Let’s go!
