Riding bikes is fun. Pedal Heads Inc want to share their passion for Mountain bikes with our local community, that's why we are hosting a Winter Race Series for all levels. Non Members are welcome.
We're hosting a series of four events, each held on one of our gravity trails, each testing your skills in a different way. You can practice as much as you like (in fact we encourage it!) and on race day you will have a two-hour window to ride as often as you like in pursuit of your own personal best.
We will celebrate the fastest person in each category of each race. The series winner will be the person with the best three results (which keeps you in contention if you miss one race) and we'll have some great prices in store.
If you are a fan of Enduro racing you'll love this one: Old Salty Dog is long, rough, gnarly and offers pretty much everything a great trail should have. It will also test your strength with a long climb out of the gully before you reach the comfort of the Trail Head and the shuttle. This trail will reward those who know how to be fast & smooth and have the fitness to push all the way to the finish line. If you haven't ridden the trail before we strongly suggest you do; it is rated 'Blue' but only until you pin it. Spectators can make their way up to Loila Tier and watch the riders make their way down the hill.
Note: We are working hard to find a way to avoid the long climb back for our youngest riders (U13 and younger). We will keep you posted about exactly how we can make this work.
Please note that you need to have an MTBA or AusCycling RACE or DAY license - please check before you sign up. We're sure your bike is in great nick, with working brakes, no play in the bearings and plugged bar ends. Since we'll be racing on gravity trails we'll require you to bring your full-face helmet (we accept models with removable chin bars). Juniors will be required to wear knee & elbow guards or long sleeves & full finger gloves but we hope everyone will be wearing those. Neck, back protection & body armor is highly recommended for all racers.
Keeping entries simple.
However, to ensure a fair race the results calculation will be based on typical MTB categories.

Note: we previously stated incorrect dates for race 3 & 4; the dates above are the correct ones. The dates on our flyers and web site were correct , too. Please double check if you can still make it & let us know if that causes any issues.
That's not a reason to stay at home! We need marshals to help keep our riders safe, and spectators who cheer them on. In any case bring something to make a lot of noise with!
A very special thanks to our supporters
