SUNDAY SUPER D Sunday 19 April 2015
 

Let’s face it we all love to go down a hill rather than up, the Banshee Super D  is the perfect mix of downhill and cross country trails packaged together into a super fun and flowing 6 – 7km stage, then you shuttle to the top and repeat this. So this is what is about, after a shuttle trip to the top of the hill you will start as an individual weaving your way down through a mixture of native & pine trees with fast flowing single track, berms, tree roots, sweeping switch backs and the odd little hill climb.

This is a great event from the weekend warrior through the pro rider. There isn’t a whole lot of climbing so you don’t have to be super fit and any bike will do!
