Important race info

First Things First

Glenwood State Forest, Lidster NSW – Vehicles will access via Alf Meyers Way off Cargo Rd.

  • The NEW Event Hub will be located at the mid point on Goat Hill Rd. Early bird parking will be between the Event Hub and Track starts, overflow parking will be available below the Event hub. We have plenty of fire roads available, with a little walk up to the Hub.
  • To get there, head out of Orange on Cargo Road until you get to the Alf Meyers Way turnoff on your left. Continue along Alf Meyers Way following the signs – see direction here

PARKING:

  • Parking will be on the Goat Hill Rd and Alf Meyers Way parallel on the right side (heading down) only, with areas set aside for cars to pass. An area will be allocated at the event hub to allow cars to turn around.
  • Marshals will be on hand to assist with parking to ensure the roads are not blocked at anytime.
  • Event format: Superflow® 2-day Race Format, you may clock in times all weekend, timing chips are active Sat and Sun. You may still clock in all your race times on one day. The timing system is set up for either – we’re offering this special edition at Orange with two days of racing to accommodate the elevation and allow riders to spread their race runs across both days.
  • Friday: Rocky Trail Academy is happening on the Friday, racing finishes at 1:30pm. Please check out their race track map, if you arrive early. They have shorter tracks. Tracks are free to ride from 1:30pm – chat to our crew on-site when you get there if you have any questions.
  • Weather – Bit cloudy on Saturday, 11-26c; chance of rain increasing by Sunday afternoon, 11-23c,
  • Water – Please bring your own supplies, we will have emergency water only as no potable water available on site.
  • Waste – Rocky Trail is committed to reduce land waste from events. We ask all participants to take home your waste and sort into your household bins. Limited bins will be on site. Please sort rubbish into the waste bins and recycle bins.
  • Camping – no camping available at this venue. Please see our Rocky Trail Orange destination guide for all the accommodation options available. Canobolas Caravan Park would be the closest campground/caravan park in town.
  • Event Photos – Keen for a photo? CHECK WITH THE CREW FOR THE SPOT TO GRAB A PHOTO THIS WEEKEND

Track Guide

This weekend 3 Fox Superflow tracks are operating – updated Friday, 8pm

  • Fox – Starting at the Event Hub course runs down “Don’t Believe the Hype”. Because of recent logging, we decided to re-routed the bottom of the trail slightly to flow into into “Travs” and then finishing on “Freak on a Leash” – now very close to the Stan’s Track Finish. Length 1.9km dropping 230m
  • Stans – Starting at the top of “Trail of Awesomeness” course breaks to the right down “Magic Mushroom”. Length 1.6km dropping 190m
  • Lazer – Sharing a start with STANS the course stays on the upper “Trail of Awesomeness”. The track has been shortened from 3.9km to 2.3km descent. This change was made after rider feedback, mainly around the untimed ride back to the top of the hill. That way we believe you’ll be able to enjoy so much of the goodness on the top of that Trail of Awesomeness more often. The risk of catching riders and having impact on race times would be decreased also. All three race tracks now finish along the same fire road too. Length 2.3km dropping 190m
