    Default (Vic) Red Hill Gravity Enduro

    It's on again! The second annual Red Hill Gravity Enduro is locked and loaded for October 7th-8th. As with last year, rego and practice runs on the Saturday, with racing on Sunday.

    Entry capacity has increased to 250, but is still likely to sell out, so don't fart around! This is a strictly NO SHUTTLES event for both days, and anyone busted shuttling will be booted.

    Full info and link to the entry portal - which is open and waiting for you - can be found on the webby site.

    Dig it.
    Just ride the bloody thing and enjoy yourself!

    I build wheels... :wink:

    I have no qualms with that...other than paying as much as many, or more than some, DH races with expensive shuttles provided. I prefer the gravity ride up format...but that entry price

    Re the entry price I think it is also a fundraiser for the club. their running expenses even for 2 days wouldn't be a lot, just st john's, permits, traffic management, and the lunch they give you on sunday. most of the marshalls and other officials are gonna be volunteers.

    Cheers. I know full well what an event costs to run, and I'm all for clubs making a buck, but there's no way I can swing $80 for an 11yo kid when we can only get there for one day, on top of travel and food. ClubMUD has the same basic expenses for KOB including 2 days shuttles included, and under 15's are like $30.

    I guess I'm just jealous that plenty of others have the disposable cash for today's race fees. If Felix knew this was on, I couldn't bear to tell him that it's just too expensive. Nothing against the club or event at all. It will sell out, and will be a great event, it's just not the family friendly pricing that I love to see in events like this that don't cost the world to run.
