Gravity Enduro is being raced for the first time on Toowoomba’s popular trail network at Jubilee Park, a venue which has hosted several XC and Downhill events over the years, and one that will surely put the most experienced riders to the test.

Get ready Queensland as we gear up for the inaugural Gravity Enduro State Championships on the weekend of 16 and 17 of November at JUBILEE MOUNTAIN BIKE PARK, Toowoomba.

Gravity Enduro is appealing to all types or riders, including downhillers, cross-country and trail riders, Gravity Enduro tracks are less technical than traditional downhills but still provide the same adrenalin pumping challenges and great fun with your mates.

Riders will negotiate five competitive stages across the day that range from 2 to 15 minutes in length. Stages are generally downhill in nature with some short climbing sections.  Non-competitive liasion stages will link riders to the next track, which must be completed in a designated time limit. The overall winner is the rider with the fastest combined time across all competitive stages.

PROLOGUE

The Prologue event Saturday afternoon will be one timed stage.  The results from the prologue for will determine race start seeding for Sunday’s racing.  These results do not go towards the overall Championship results, prologue will only be used for race day seeding purposes.

Membership Change - Your Vote Counts!
With more organised events and the need for day Licences at social days, the Committee has seen the need to re-define memberships of the TMBC.  We will vote on the following proposed changes at the next general meeting.
 

New Non Race/Social Membership with MTBA:
The current Entry Level riding membership will become Non race/Social Membership with Mountain Bike Australia (MTBA) membership. This means there is no need for day licensing at TMBC social events and rides. Importantly, it provides insurance coverage for the rider as a social member. You can find out more information on the included MTBA insurance here. If do plan to race competitively, you would need to secure a race day license separately at the event.
 
$20 Non Riding Supporter Membership
Our $20 Basic/Supporter Membership will continue. It’s great for families, children, and community members to show their support for TMBC. This membership has no riding insurance or affiliation with MTBA. We will also vote on a name change to from “Basic/Supporter Membership” to Non Riding Supporter Membership.
 
The Wrap:
  • Your support in this change and ongoing participation in TMBC will allow our club to continue to move forward and grow in the coming years
  • With it we will see our riding members shift their memberships as they become due over the next 12 months in line with the new membership levels.
  • If you already hold MTBA competition Licences you are not affected.
