St Helens Winter Race Series

proudly hosted by

About us

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.

About the race

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 practise 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.

About Race 2 - Icarus

Did you like the first race? We're taking it up a notch with the second leg of our series: Icarus. To access the trail you'll be rolling down Send Helen's to where you started in Race 1 and then have to climb a few meters to get to the start of the stage. Make sure you have a look at the rock slab after berm 2 and check the entry to the S-curve around the tree a little further in. Icarus is a more natural trail with some cool features and many off-camber corners. The final meters will take you to the trail head along the fire road which should give spectators a chance to get a good look at some racing action.

Note: We will have a separate start for our younger riders (U13 and younger) after the two first tricky bits - we will have marshals on site to help them get there safely - and have a separate finish for them before the jumps.

Before you jump in & sign up

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 & long sleeves or elbow guards & full finger gloves but we hope everyone will be wearing those. Neck, back protection & body armour is recommended.

If you don't want to race

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!
