What is gravity enduro?
Gravity enduro is a next-level mountain biking experience. It’s a multi-stage race format designed around a series of untimed uphill and timed downhill sections. Cruise to the top of the hill, then bomb down as fast as you like. Rinse, repeat!
The untimed climbs mean you get to ride at a leisurely pace, chatting with your friends and taking in the beautiful scenery. The timed downhill sections are where the real action happens!
Riders have four hours to complete the course. The course incorporates six competitive downhill stages, each ranging in difficulty (nothing too gnarly, though!). Participants have their times recorded for each downhill stage, and the woman with the fastest consolidated time is declared the winner!
Where is Heels on 2 Wheels?
Heels on 2 Wheels is held at the world-class Kooralbyn Valley Mountain Bike Park. This is the BEST location for endurance MTB events – magnificent trails, sprawling mountainous views, abundant wildlife and an easy drive from Brisbane and the Gold Coast.
Kooralbyn is a hidden gem of the Scenic Rim. It’s the original home of endurance riding in Queensland and is where former Australian racing cyclist Cadel Evans cut his teeth in the mountain biking world!

Never done gravity enduro before? Here’s what you need:
Although the uphill sections are untimed, riders do still need to reach each stage by a certain time, so a reasonable level of fitness is essential.
It’s also recommended you have:
A reliable, fully-functioning bike, preferably a full-suspension rig
Helmet with a full-face or half-face lid but XC style is ok
One spare tube, tyre levers and a pump or compressed air canisters to fix punctures
High-energy snacks, water and a pack to carry them in
