Race Book - Round 1 - Fox Creek
Here is the rider and spectator information. It’s important you read all of the information here – it will answer almost any question you could possibly have. It is your responsibility to know the rules.
As always, we rely on volunteer marshals to make these events a success, if you know somebody who would be interested please ask them to contact us. If anyone has friends or family with them who can marshal please get them to sign up.
This year’s race season is brought to you by the following sponsors who have donated a huge amount of awesome swag for us to give away or supported us in some other way. Do these guys a solid and consider them for your next bicycle related purchase.

Every event the organisers, marshals, sign on staff and riders witness or hear about outstanding acts of resilience, bravery, kind heartedness and fellowship in the race community. The “Spirit of Enduro Award” was born. If you witness the spirit of enduro in someone, be they a rider, event staff, spectator or anyone else just fill in a form (in the sign on tent) to nominate them and each race we’ll pick a winner.

Each rider must collect their race plate and timing chip from the rider registration tent. We ask that you allow riders due to depart in the first wave to register first to keep the day flowing smoothly.
Please refer to the Rider Information graphic for information on the correct way to mount your timing chip. Competitors accept a charge of $120 + gst to be made within 10 working days for any timing chip that is lost, damaged or not returned after the event.
Keep your race plate safe and remember to bring it to any future races you wish to participate in. If you lose your race, a replacement is $10. A 5 minute time penalty will apply if you cut or modify your race plate in anyway.
Riders must wear a full-face helmet on race stages. Helmets with a detachable chin bar are acceptable. A helmet must be worn whenever you are riding your bike, including liaison stages. We recommend knee pads, gloves and long sleeves as well.

How Does a Gravity Enduro Racing Work?
It is your responsibility to know the rules. You can view the rules here.
All riders are roving marshals, if you see a rider that has crashed and requires medical attention stay with them, wave down the next rider and get them to contact the marshal at the bottom of the track. Both riders who have had their stage interrupted will be awarded a re-run.
Marshals at the bottom of each stage will be equipped with a first aid kit for minor injuries, this is for injuries that don’t require the assistance of our paramedic. It is not an obligation for the marshal to administer first aid if required but may help if they choose. If a higher level of care is needed the marshal will call for our first aid officer.
Gravity Enduro SA reserves the right to modify or cancel the event if circumstances beyond the control of the organiser should arise. This includes cancellation of event due to extreme weather, acts of God, violence, civil disobedience and war.
If the event is cancelled we will not be liable for costs of travel fares, hotels, or any other expenses that may be incurred.
It is your responsibility to ensure that the race is going ahead before travelling. We will do our best to inform you if the race has to be cancelled but we do not accept liability if we are unable to contact you. We strongly advise that you check before making travel and accommodation arrangements.
If the event is cancelled we would endeavour to reschedule if possible. Please be aware that we may be unable to refund or part refund any entry fee. We are also unable to transfer your entry to another event.
