Fox On Rocks Funduro: 18 September

Are you a lady that would love to race mountain bikes with other women in a fun and inclusive race format? The Fox on Rocks Funduro is exactly that, a Women’s only enduro event that celebrates Women on bikes. Here’s the nitty gritty for those ladies looking to have fun between the tape…

One of the hardest things to do as any rider is to make that first step towards racing, to sign up for that first race and have a go between the tape, against the clock. As a woman it can be harder in a historically male dominated sport to feel comfortable enough to race with other racers and to make that first step to move towards racing glory! The Fox on Rocks Funduro is the perfect stepping stone to other races and perfect chance to ride with other ladies that just want to have fun, smile and ride bikes.
