Welcome to the Victorian Enduro Tour – A series of gravity enduro races held around Victoria.
Each race is conducted by separate organisations who are united by our love of trails and our ambition to provide a popular, well run series where riders can shred some of the best trails in the state.
We are excited to continue the momentum we built up last year with another killer series planned for 2018 – 2019 with confirmed race dates and locations as:

What is Gravity Enduro?
Well it is pretty much everything we love about riding mountain bikes – cruising with your friends and enjoying a good ride together and bombing the descents and being competitive when speeds are high.. get on board!!
Basically a Gravity Enduro race is conducted around a designated course that includes uphills and downhills (like any ride really), but in a Gravity Enduro you are only timed over the designated downhill segments and when you get to the bottom your time is stopped and you can ride at your own pace to the top of the next segment and then race downhill again. These time-out segments allow you to wait for your mates and compare stories and then ride on together in a friendly, social scene until its time to drop the hammer and race downhill again.
Most of the time you need to ride uphill to the top of the next descent but some events also provide either a bus+bike shuttles or chairlift rides to the top of some segments to save you riding all the uphills – happy days! The descents vary in technicality but are generally not as rough or technical as a proper downhill race track and if there are technical sections there is often an easier B-Line so riders of all abilities can get down fine.
So if you have not done a gravity endure before then check out the Victorian Enduro Tour events and join the revolution.
