Shimano MTB Grand Prix Townsville 19 June, 2021
The scene will be set for some awesome racing action at Mount Douglas Reserve in Townsville, hosted by the Rockwheelers MTB Club. This weekend sees the Shimano MTB Grand Prix event grace the trails of the North – with the racer’s endurance and stamina being put to the test. The 4 and 6 hour format is a cross country endurance format with the racer completing the most laps in the given time declared the winner.
“From the first time between the tape to racers that have spent a lifetime training for power output, they will all enjoy lining up at our start line”Bob Morris – Rocky Trail Race Director
Fox Super Flow Townsville 26-27 June, 2021
The popular race format Fox Super flow heads back to Townsville next weekend and it looks set to be a huge race weekend up there. The trace will again be held over two days and riders can complete a maximum of five runs per trail over the two days with the fastest time for each stage counting towards their total time. With no excuse not to give it a crack, Townsville’s riders will be able to maximise their fun, relax between the tape and get some trains running down the trails.
“Fox Superflow will offer an awesome day out for many categories – from elite to amateur racers to families with juniors, couples and groups of friends riding together.”BOB MORRIS – RACE DIRECTOR
This looks set to be an awesome few weeks in Townsville and the Rocky Trail Entertainment team always put on a good event. This will be the last North Queensland round of events before the team head back to the South East corner to begin the South East Queensland Superflow series. If you are up in Townsville this may well be a good chance to get a smile of your dial between the tape and a great reason for a road trip with mates…….
