Get ready for next-level Superflow racing on the Mid North Coast of NSW!

This event takes you to Jolly Nose MTB Park on the NSW North Coast. Super-fast, challenging A-lines in the rockgarden and flowy B-lines too – the local Hastings Valley MTB Riders claim some of the fastest superflow racers in our series history and once you race their home tracks, you’ll know why!

This is enduro racing with new friends and without a tight schedule. Work with your crew and other racers to figure out the best order to race, get strategic! Elite racer, grom or noob, any age, will have a blast: there are no harsh cut-off times or start orders, which means whatever category you’re in, you can ride together and each lock your own best race run in!

Get ready to have an awesome day out as you smash down our Fox Superflow® race tracks to hunt down those precious seconds for the win!
