RIDER BRIEFING

Fox Rollercoaster #Superflow Series, hyrdrated by CamelBak
Ourimbah MTB Park, Wyong NSW – 28 February 2016

last updated: 25 February 2016

The first round of the “new-hashtag-same-awesomeness” Fox Rollercoaster #Superflow Series, hydrated by CamelBak will be held at Ourimbah MTB Park on the Central Coast. Three trails are on offer and you’ll ride to the starts of all of them – as always at Rocky Trail’s Fox Rollercoaster, all trails are open at the same time, so you choose your racing sequence. There is no start order, so you can ride with your mates, kids, wives, girl and boyfriends, even if they’re in a different category.

This rider briefing will give you all the information for a smooth racing day. Any more questions? Email us at cycle@rockytrailentertainment.com or call our Race Director Martin on 0403 090 952.
