...A whole weekend – bringing the hills of Stromlo Forest Park to Life with MTB endurance, dual slalom, short track cross country racing and fun social rides, all for a good cause!

For the final round of our MTB Grand Prix Series (, we have teamed up with Pedal4Pierce, a Canberra-based fund raising initiative that supports national and international research for the treatment and cure of Muscular Dystrophy. Funds raised by Pedal 4 Pierce support The Children's Hospital at Westmead and the ACT Muscular Dystrophy Association.

We invite you to Canberra's MTB mecca Stromlo Forest Park, to celebrate, help raise funds and, of course, to ride and race.

* Twilight Race on Friday evening
* Final Rocky Trail MTB Grand Prix Round on Saturday with GP8 and GP4 hours races
* Pedal4Pierce fun and explorer rides on Sunday
* Additional Rocky Trail fun races and rides on Sunday – Cross-Country sprint time trial and Dual Slalom fun runs

You can collect points at every race and ride over the entire weekend and help answer the question: “Who's the King of the Hill?”
(we're looking for Queen, Duke, Duchess, Prince and Princess too).

Meet Christopher - the boy behind the Pedal4Pierce idea!

Rocky Trail MTB Crown
Pedal4Pierce Charity Fun Ride
Sunday, 21 November

What it is all about – The Story

Whilst having dinner one night in September 2009 at his home in Canberra, Christopher asked his parents if he could do “something to raise money for people who research things” to help his friend Pierce, who suffers from Congenital Muscular Dystrophy….after some discussion, the who, what and how was worked out. Christopher was 10 years old then and is the brain child of….“Pedal 4 Pierce”.

Be part of the 2010 Pedal4Pierce Charity Fun Ride – Make a difference!

The Pedal4Pierce fun ride on Sunday, 21 November is a fun event no matter who you are or what experience you have. This is not a race, just a time to enjoy the ride and raise money in doing so. Stromlo Forest Park boasts many great tracks, from the little kids track with roadside swings and play areas, to the international cross country and downhill tracks. Whether you ride on the dirt or the road, there is a track for you. “Pedal 4 Pierce” is a fundraiser for the whole family to enjoy, just like Christopher had planned it.

So, start the Sunday at the Rocky Trail MTB Crown ( with the Pedal4Pierce Charity Fun Ride around a short course that has been set out by Christopher. We envisage Pierce opening the ride and Christopher leading a sea of mountain bike riders around the 4km trail that Chrisopher calls "Pierce's Track".

Head to the Rocky Trail website to find out more about the weekend and how you can help us raise funds for this good cause.
