The third event in the Hobart Gravity Enduro series organised by he Hobart Wheelers / Dirt Devils Cycling Club will be held in the Meehan Ranges on Saturday 23 September 2017.  Parking is at the Clarence MTB Park Car Park with entrants to then ride over to Belbins for the racing. What is it?

Gravity Enduro racing is a great day out riding bikes. It's all the aspects of most peoples rides. Riding to some great trails with your mates or meeting new friends to ride with & cruising & chatting & eating sour snakes on the uphills. But this is still no slack pack easy going, hows the weather kinda ride because once your at the top it's all business! Bets have been won & lost, friendships made & broken as you then begin 1 of 3 timed downhill orientated stages. And then you do it again & again, giving you 3 timed downhill stages. These are added together to give you a total time which determines you overall placing. But remember, winning's winning & having fun is easier & more socially accepted.

Hot drinks & food will be provided in your entry fee.

Skill level - Intermediate. This series is designed to be open to a wide range of riders with a hope of this being the first Enduro race for many, Although we highly recommend riding all the proposed stages before race day.
