Spring Gravity Enduro
Priority Series Entry
Both Rounds 1 & 2


Jindabyne Cycling Club (JCC) in partnership with Jindabyne Trail Stewardship (JTS) are proud to host the inaugural Jindabyne Spring Gravity Enduro Series at the Tyrolean MTB Park in East Jindabyne (Tyrolean Village). This is a community race series, aiming to raise funds for local cycling development and trail maintenance through healthy competition.

We are offering racing on Saturday afternoons across the following weekends. Registration and collection of timing chips from Race HQ at Echidna Place any time from 11am and timing is live from 12pm to 4pm.

Round 1 Saturday, 04 November 2023 (afternoon)
Round 2 Saturday, 11 November 2023 (afternoon)

Keep an eye out for details of JTS trailwork days planned around the Series to get the trails in mint condition. Current dates proposed are Sunday, 17 September; Saturday, 14 October and Sunday, 5 November.

A big shout out to our sponsors Snowy Monaro Regional Council, Sacred Ride, Sendy, Pit Viper and Holly go Lightly for helping to make this possible. Massive kudos also to the Thredbo Pro Bike Patrol for their first-aid support.

  • Members - Discounted entry is available to Jindabyne Cycling Club and Jindabyne Trail Stewardship members. If you have selected membership of either of these clubs as part of your AusCycling membership then tick the member tickbox at entry to receive a discount.
  • Effective Ages - Ages are as at 31 December 2023
  • Single round availability and pricing - Event entries are currently capped at 100 racers and priority entry is being provided to those that intend to race both rounds. JCC does intend to offer single round entry and pricing in coming days but this will be subject to demand and our ability to secure more timing chips.

Licencing Requirements

For insurance purposes, all riders need to be current race members of AusCycling (i.e. hold an annual race membership) or purchase AusCycling Day Licences.

AusCycling Day Licences are available via tickbox at entry at a cost of $44 per day (so $88 for both rounds). If you don't require a Day Licence, please avoid ticking the Day Licence option

Timing Chips

JCC has purchased some very fancy timing equipment and we need this back if we're to run future community racing events! SIAC timing chips will be issued upon registration at RaceHQ and must be returned following each afternoon of racing. Round 1 timing chips will be collected at RaceHQ and Round 2 chips will be collected in Jindabyne (Poo Bay).

There is a fee chargeable for failure to return the SIAC timing chip following each Round. The fee is $140 (i.e. the cost of the chip).

Rider Briefing Videos

Rider Briefing Videos will be posted on this page on the morning of each day of racing. These videos will provide an update on course conditions, important safety information and other last-minute race arrangements.

It is compulsory to watch the Rider Briefing Videos and you will be asked to confirm you have done so when picking up your timing chip from RaceHQ.

Race Schedule

  • Registration from 11am at RaceHQ, Echidna Place, Tyrolean Village
  • Timing is live from 12pm-4pm
  • Casual sausage sizzle presentation on 04 November at Event HQ for day results (approx. 4.30pm) and a presentation at Holly Go Lightly's in Jindabyne on 11 November for series results (approx. 5.30pm).

When do I start the race? While registration and collection of timing chips can occur any time from 11am to 3pm, we expect that most riders will take around 2 hours to complete all timed descents. Please allow ample time within the active timing window to collect your chip and ride all timed descents (and more time if you wish to ride descents more than once).

Where do I park? Parking is available at RaceHQ at Echidna Place. This will be a combination of off-street and on-street parking. Round 2 will finish in Jindabyne, so consider a drop-off at RaceHQ and leaving a car at the Copper Tom trailhead in Poo Bay. Alternatively, you could ride to EventHQ from Jindabyne before timing goes live at 12pm.

Race Courses

Detailed course maps are linked below and accessible through the TrailForks app.

Round 1 https://www.trailforks.com/route/jindabyne-spring-gravity-enduro-series-round-1/
Round 2 https://www.trailforks.com/route/jindabyne-spring-gravity-enduro-series-round-2/

The Series is a gravity enduro race format of untimed climbs and timed descents which can be attempted as many times as racers wish while timing is live. The exception to this is the shorter Jindabyne return courses in Round 2 which are 'one shot' because there is no safe return climb. Racers’ fastest time on each descent will be aggregated each afternoon and across the Series to provide a final result. There will be 3 to 4 timed descents available on each day of racing and all timed descents must be completed at least once to receive a result.

In setting the courses, we’re aiming to showcase the best that mountain biking the Tyrolean MTB Park has to offer. Courses will be approachable for riders with a low intermediate skill level and above, but all levels will find it challenging and fun thanks to A and B lines over and around difficult features. Courses include both flowing and technical terrain, taking in old favourite descents like Three Lions and the Pink Trail along with some more unusual lines.

As an AusCycling sanctioned 'Bronze' level event, the Series is subject to the rules and technical regulations applicable to the gravity enduro format of racing. More details on this are available here.

Racers must stick to the timed descents and approved climb trails -- there will be no vehicle shuttling and no riding up public roads (e.g. Rainbow Drive). Doing so will result in disqualification and risks jeapodising JCC's ability to hold similar events in the future. Courses may change at Chief Commissaire’s discretion due to weather and safety factors.

Race rules


  • Jindabyne is a small community and we’re fortunate to have many volunteers and local businesses supporting our event. Be positive, be nice and support them to support you.

  • Follow the directions of the Chief Commissaire and marshals. Commissaire’s decisions are final.

  • If you’re approaching a slower rider, give plenty of advance notice. The slower rider must yield when safe to do so.

  • Provide assistance to riders in need, particularly if you see a fall. We’re not racing for sheep stations here and you will get more than one shot at most of the timed descents. You can also restart an interrupted descent.


  • You must wear a helmet whenever you’re on your bike. An open face helmet is fine, but we recommend a full-face helmet.

  • We recommend knee pads and covered elbows (ideally elbow pads).

  • Aim to be largely self-sufficient with food and water. JCC will have water at RaceHQ and some around the course.

  • Your bike must be in good working order, particularly the brakes and tyres.
