Getting There

So if your heading to Barjarg, make your way onto the Midland Highway between Mansfield and Benalla. Wether your coming from the north or the south, you will travel along the midland highway until you reach Lake Nillahcootie Road and turn up there. Follow all the way around the back of the lake until you see Sandy Creek Road on your right. Turn up there and continue along.

BEWARE the road is narrow and at times very hard to see oncoming traffic-PLEASE stick to 40kph and youll have no problem.

Keep following that road all the way up the to base of the mountain, where it will then curve around to the right and then slightly downhill towards the property. You will then pass through a gate. Continue PAST the big shed on your right, go straight ahead up over the hill and down the other side.

Keep going past the big white container on your left, and go right up into the far end of the paddock where you will see the rego tent where we will be based.

DO NOT park near or venture near the green shed/shack, this is private. Please respect this.

Event Rules

  1. You ride or shuttle up to the stage starts – this time does not count.
  2. You race down on a bunted race course – this time goes towards your race time.
  3. Full face helmets and elbow and knee pads are COMPULSORY for all race stages, and either full or open face also compulsory for all liaison stages. Helmets must be worn at all times when riding. All helmets must have an Australian or European Standards sticker clearly visible on them. These will be checked before your race run. Elbow and Knee pads are now compulsory from April 1st 2016.
  4. No shortcutting the track, bunted or otherwise. Any rider cutting the course is immediately disqualified from that race and points.
  5. You are issued a Sportident timing chip which reads your race time automatically.
  6. Timing chips must be returned to the Timing staff after the last race run at the finish area. Riders who fail to return their timing chip will be excluded from results and cannot claim race or series points. Your credit card will also be charged for a replacement chip.
  7. Race numbers must be displayed on the handlebars of the bicycle. The number plate must be readable, NOT folded or cut, so it must be fastened as flat as possible. Altering, cutting or placing of unauthorized sponsors’ logos on numbers will result in disqualification from any race.
  8. You keep your number on all weekend.
  9. For safety and insurance reasons riders must register before they will be allowed to practice.
  10. All courses are CLOSED to general public during competition. All courses are also closed to competitors of the event unless they are currently open for racing. This means before and after a course is raced, that course is CLOSED for safety reasons (no track marshals).
  11. Riders must present their MTBA membership card at registration, printed receipt, or purchase a MTBA day permit. NO EXCEPTIONS. We will not accept under any circumstances you showing us your Mtba membership on your phone or computer. If you get injured we do not have a copy of it. Likewise we will not accept you emailing it to us. Print it out and bring it to rego or bring your licence, OR buy a day licence.
  12. A rider whose race is stopped due to another rider crashing, requiring first aid, is allowed to restart thier race run ONCE during the event. Crashing, overtaking, being overtaken, missing a turn, mechanicals, running off course do not warrant a re-run. All re-runs must be approved prior to starting again by the race director. Riders who stop to help another injured rider will get a re-run.
  13. You are NOT allowed to change bikes in between your runs. One bike for all Gravity Enduro race stages no exceptions.
  14. Points for this race count towards any and all series points.
  15. All podium places go to third place for podium presentations except Elite Men and Woman.
  16. Once you have entered there is NO refunds or exchange. You wouldn’t get a refund from a concert or movie, so if you can’t compete for whatever reason, don’t expect it from us.
  17. Age categories are based on the age you are on the LAST DAY of competition Sunday May 15-2017. For example if you turn 19 on that day you cannot race under 19’s. However if you turned 19 AFTER the last day, you are able to race under 19’s.
  18. No outside interference OR assistance is allowed during a RACE STAGE during the event in reference to making your way DOWN a race stage. At no time is any competitor allowed to be shuttled, driven, pushed or helped in any way to the top of the mountain or between stages or during liaison stages in order to GAIN time or distance, unless by the head commissar/race organiser personally. Mechanical assistance for bike repairs, flats, mechanicals IS allowed on liason stages and in the race village.
