Sunday 29 July sees Round 5 of the WA Gravity Enduro Series at the Meelup and Dunsborough & Districts Country Club trails! Gravity enduro is a fun and social racing format anyone can enjoy, from the elite to weekend warriors to first-timers and juniors. With the race village based at the Country Club in the heart of Dunsborough providing ample opportunity for refreshments and socialising, this is a very accessible event - if you've ever wanted to give a gravity enduro a go, now's the perfect time.
It's also a great sport to watch - even if you’re not competing it’ll be worth marking the date and heading up into the hills to spectate and heckle as hard as you can. And if you're not racing but would like to get involved, we'll likely be putting out a call for volunteers (course marshals etc) closer to the date - keep an eye on our Facebook page for updates.
Learn more and get your race registrations in at the WAGE website.
Well, that went quickly - after almost a decade of preparation and paperwork, and a mere couple of weeks of building, the new Meelup trails are open! They're still fresh and signage isn't in place yet, so please check stuff out before you hit it, and remember to ride within your abilities :)
A huge thank you has to go out to all the crew that started this process so so long ago and all the planners, builders and helpers who got us to where we are now. A big shout-out to Ivan Svenson and Shane Williams from the Trailbuilders (new website coming soon apparently), Andrew Spencer-Wright, Pete Battye, Jayson Faulkner, Mitch Monotti and Roman Vock plus all the volunteers who helped out on the recent build days.
It's not over yet - we have more upgrades planned for the coming months, including 2 new descents, so stay tuned!
