About Tiger Tracks Gravel

Tiger Tracks Gravel is a weekend of gravel racing, riding and learning. We welcome gravel riders of all experience levels, and especially encourage female riders and those new to gravel.

TTG is organized by 4Five+ Athlete Collective, with the support of the Jalbarragup community in remote Southwest WA (near Nannup). The field size each day will be capped at 150 riders to respect the small community who hosts us, and to encourage a welcoming grass roots vibe.

Participation events

On Saturday each individual event can be entered as a Non-Race Challenge, allowing riders to enjoy the various Tiger courses with full event support and a wider range of AusCycling License options. Time cut-offs still apply. The Non-Race Challenge is also suitable for e-bikes and adaptive athletes.
- Select your Tiger distance from the Category drop-down menu and tick the Non-Race Challenge Special Offer box on the entry form.

On Sunday there is a Come & Try Gravel package available, particularly suited to those new to gravel. It includes a skills session + supported social ride - entry details on the website https://www.4fiveplus.org/tiger-tracks-gravel.

The Location

The course terrain is rolling, rather than hilly, and the chosen routes are 100% gravel roads. This year the course is a little longer, taking in more bush tracks and less Jalbarragup Road.

The Event Hub is at the Darradup Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade Shed in Jalbarragup, 20km from Nannup. This is a small remote rural location, so the facilities will be basic, but the welcome will be warm.

The local community will be selling food & drinks - think sausage sizzle, egg & bacon burgers etc. We are working on securing coffee supplies. Sunday there will be a light lunch provided for riders - we hope you can stay for presentations.

Note that mobile network coverage is limited to Telstra, there are no shops, and cash is king.

Accommodation - always tight around Nannup in school holidays...we are working with the local community to provide extra options for our volunteers and 4Five+ AC members. Keep an eye on the website for suggestions and updates.
