Fox Superflow - Round 1 - Thredbo
31 March 2019
We kick of the series at Thredbo MTB Park with a whole weekend of gravity racing! Thredbo is the ideal playground for gravity racers enjoy the Alpine village atmosphere with accommodation options available right next to the event centre and mingle with fellow racers at the end of the day.The Fox Superflow will take place on the Flow Trail with its fast traverses and awesome berms practice on Saturday and racing on the Sunday! The RedAss Downhill racers will have their competition on the Saturday as well check out the website and registration page for package deals to compete in both events! This is a standalone event and you can collect points for the series ranking!
The Fox Superflow trail used will be 2 runs of the Kosciuszko Flow Trail. Combined time counts.Perfect for those looking for an introduction into downhill riding or a warm up for the Cannonball. Starting at the top of the Kosciuszko Express Chairlift, riders roll through single-track with never ending rollers and smooth berms to keep the flow going, it is a blast top to bottom. The steady gradient gives riders a more mellow ride, but still providing the adrenalin rush of downhilling.Each timed section demands different skill sets of the riders – from tricky sections around rocks and tight corners to flowy berms and quick stints that needed pedal power and endurance.Almost all events require riders to ride to the starts on their bikes and in that way the series offers a big variety of trails. All our trails can be as tough as you want them to be – there are always different line choices and generally, the faster and the harder you go, the more challenging they get. We specifically pick our venues to meet those requirements.
