The Rocky Trail Academy is about building resilience and life skills on rocky trails! The Rocky Trail Academy is all about fostering the grass-roots development of mountain biking in schools. This is a mountain bike race at Sugar Bag MTB Park, which is geared towards secondary students and held at mountain bike parks, offering three different trails. With three timed stages, students will have the opportunity to test their riding ability across three skill areas Endurance, Speed and Technical Skills. The event will not only engage youth in healthy social and active recreation but brings a heightened appreciation of nature, the environment, self-reliance, self-learning and independence, all as part of riding a bike in the outdoors. By extension, this program also engages and educates teachers and parents. Kids love the flexible format and the LIVE timing - they get to spend a school day on their bike and with friends! The Rocky Trail Academy races are endorsed by AusCycling.
