2021 Fox on Rocks Funduro


Women’s only Gravity Enduro (GE) style event held by “Dirt Angels”- Toowoomba Women’s Mountain Biking in conjunction with Toowoomba Mountain Bike Club -TMBC. Since 2016 we have hosted annual Fox on Rocks Funduro events attracting 75 women riders and their supporters. By allowing self-shuttling to the top of the Toowoomba Range, with special timed stages that transition back down the range to the event village, the event is accessible to those women with less confidence or fitness and hence we call it a “Funduro”. The ‘Funduro” format has been used by other event organisers and notably the Enduro World Series 2019 held in Derby Tasmania opened the weekend of racing with a Fox on Rocks Funduro for local women riders. As we return to our origins with a women’s only event let us make Fox on Rocks Funduro 2021 bigger and better than ever...


The aim of Fox on Rocks Funduro is to provide a relaxed, fun entry into the discipline of Gravity Enduro (GE).
Most MTB riders like riding downhill quickly but the Down Hill (DH) format can be challenging for beginners and the less confident rider. Many MTB riders find racing uphill a less appealing challenge and lining up on the start line of a cross country (XC) race can also be intimidating. We believe Gravity Enduro is the racing “sweet spot”.

Jubilee Park is always open (weather permitting) and the course maps will be available well before race day with the specific stages being released over a consecutive number of weeks in The lead up to the event. There are plenty of local Dirt Angels who would love to show you around and by joining the Dirt Angels- Toowoomba Women’s Mountain Biking Facebook group you can kept informed of any social events planned in the lead up to Fox on Rocks Funduro 2021

Unofficial Practice

Dates: Saturday 18th September 2021 held at Jubilee Park, Toowoomba. Prior weekend (4th and 5th of September and 11th and 12th of September 2021) is unofficial practice.

Auscycle/MTBA race licence is required. 4-week trial membership is available if you have not accessed it before.

Otherwise day licences are available for purchase at time of online registration, as are upgrades if you are a social (non-race) Auscycle/MTBA member.
Racing under the Auscycle/MTBA licence states that a full face helmet( FFH) is required for Group A (Velocity Vixens : Open Women) as Stage 4a is a Black rated trail and therefore deemed GE -Standard A ( GE events incorporating very technical terrain OR steep mountainsides OR very high speed trails). All other Groups B,C,D,E,F,G may wear an open face helmet, but FFH is recommended, as the stages being raced are green and blue trails and deemed GE-Standard B. Juniors must have elbow length sleeves, elbow and knee protection and full finger gloves as per Auscycle/ MTBA regulations.
Serviceable MTB with Dual suspension is preferable to enhance enjoyment, but a Hardtail will suffice for group B, C, D, E, F, G
