Virtual Rider Briefing

Important – our Race Director Bob mentions the Vapor Trails the Fox Track, which is not correct – here are the correct tracks:

  • FOX – From the summit ride upper Trebuchet keeping it low and fast to the bridge. Then loosen it up for Carolyn’s, Triple Treat, The Playground and then out the Downhill to finish this monster. 2.1km long and dropping the full 180m of vertical available at Stromlo.
  • STANS Start at the tunnel, smash middle Trebuchet, and lower Trebuchet before the Old Duffy Descent and the pedal out to finish near near the car park. 1.5km long and descending 110m.
  • LAZER Rollercoaster into Skyline into Luge. Starting at the second peak at Stromlo this nearly 3 km track drops more than 150m.

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!

What makes Canberra such a cycle friendly city? Is it the designated bike lanes on the main roads, or the extensive network of bike paths weaving their way throughout the city? We reckon it’s the range of cafes and venues that position themselves as ‘bike friendly’, or the year-round calendar of popular cycling events, including Rocky Trail’s line-up for Canberra every year!

Why not make it a weekend getaway to the Capital with us? There are so many things to see and do off the race track, and here’s the Top Ten to get you started!
