We always strive to set ourselves a high safety standard and Gravity Canterbury have given us their full support on this front.
At certain points along the racetrack there will be areas that are completely taped / roped off. These areas are ‘Exclusion Zones’.
We intend to make these areas obvious, so please, spectate and support all racers but DO NOT enter these ‘Exclusion Zones’ for your own safety.
DO NOT venture away from the racetrack as the forest is still an active hazard and tree and limb fall occurs sporadically.
We cannot stress enough that there is to be NO open flame on the hill and that ALL rubbish must be removed and taken down. We do not want to see the park disappear for the second time!
There is always a level of risk when spectating a downhill mountain bike race as its difficult to predict where a rider may crash, and bikes can land. There are a couple of areas on the track that has been flagged as higher risk. These areas are the ‘Exclusion Zones’. A helpful tip is, always try and stand on the uphill side of the track so if a rider is to crash, they will generally fall down the hill.
If you are interested in the finish jump and a good viewing point where you can see a lot of the racetrack, for the day, bikers and walkers are able to head up Valley Road to its end where the racetrack finishes.
There is a new walking trail in the trees which public members are allowed to walk up and will put you out at the bottom of The GC. From here you can sit against the bank under the trees and watch the finish.
All riders are asked to ride down Handle the Jandal from the finish line, so there shouldn’t be any rider traffic.
Middle Up or Down
If you are out and about on your bike, for the day only, you can pedal in from Hotspot (location where LOP/Swinger Party etc. come out) along Mid Road to where The GC crosses the road.
From here, please get off your bike and you are able to walk up the track from the road crossing. Again, please be very careful as you walk alongside of the track. Please do not walk down the track from here. This section is nicknamed ‘The Motorway’ as it is a very fast section of track.
Community Transmission starts off Skid 5 which you can access off Summit Connection via bike only. To access the start via foot, please use the path that takes you down under the lift line then along the road to the starting gate.
From Skid 5, public members can drop their bikes and walk down outside the tape of Community Transmission. Alternatively, and what we recommend is to walk down The GC and cross over to Community Transmission. Please ensure you always stay outside the taped course.
