The 2022 Race calendar is packed with great locations in Queensland and looks set to provide some more grass roots racing for riders of all levels. This year sees the addition of some epic venues in South East Queensland including Toowoomba, a location that has been absent from enduro racing over the last year. The popular format will certainly draw the crowds with relaxed and carefree racing as always.
Fox Superflow is all about racing the way you ride with three timed runs, up to five runs per stage with your fastest times counting towards your overall time. You can race with your mates, at your own pace and set your own schedule for the day, something many riders learn to love about this race format.
This year sees the addition of a 4th Pro stage for some races, this will be optional for Sunday racers only and incorporate a more challenging, full face only stage. This stage will count towards the Superflow Pro points for the season and is available to Elite, U21 and Masters riders. This addition will allow riders to get a taste of more technical trails, challenges and continue to evolve the already popular Superflow format.
