Womens only Gravity Enduro style event hosted by Toowoomba Mountain Bike Club in conjunction with the Dirt Angels MTB Group. November 13 in Jubilee Park.
What is Gravity Enduro?
Gravity Enduro is racing that takes place on a number of timed stages on sections of trail that are mostly descending. For a little more insight Click Here
Provide a relaxed, fun entry into the discipline of Gravity Enduro. Most MTB riders like going down hills fast & most dislike racing uphill. Women included. In its current form, Gravity Enduro is dominated by male rider entries. This may be because of the misconception that its a Downhill race. By introducing more women to the non pressured riding style of GE over a easy to moderate course, more may become interested in participating in the discipline at a higher level.
