The Thredbo Super Enduro is happening this weekend and with sunshine in the forecast and a stack of cash and prizes on the table it is set to be a big one.
Bring your A game and tactics to Thredbo Mountain Bike Park this weekend for the third instalment of the Thredbo Super Enduro presented by Maxxis. Riders take on three gravity tracks, on one bike, over a five hour period and with $25K in cash and prizes across 21 categories, there are plenty of podium places up for grabs.
The event showcases the great riding on offer in the Thredbo Mountain Bike Park, with riders racing the three signature gravity trails – the All-Mountain, Kosciuszko Flow and Cannonball Downhill.
Riders love the format of the Super Enduro as they can ride each track as many times as they like to clock their best time. It gives them the chance to really keep pushing to go faster and faster each run with the clock on, taking away the pressure of only having one run and one chance.
There’s an added twist for individual entrants, they can only use one bike across the three diverse trails. Leaving racers wondering – do I pack the big rig to make up seconds on the downhill, or will the efficient pedalling of an Enduro see slabs of time made up on the Flow and All-Mountain Trails.
Returning for the third event Enduro racer Tim Eaton is looking forward to the weekend.
“Stoked to be coming back to Thredbo for the third Super Enduro, it’s my favourite race format with as many runs as you want in five hours and with some of the best tracks in Australia it is going to make for some great racing” said Eaton.
Enter as a team or go it alone, there’s 21 categories plus three team classes.
With the crown of the Thredbo Super Enduro Champion and a stack of cash and prizes up for grabs there is plenty to ride for.
