*Please note: information for the 2017 Shootout will be released shortly!
THE 2016 SUNDOWN SHOOTOUT IS ONE NOT TO BE MISSED!
Racing will kick off from 4:30pm on Friday 21st October.
Changing it up for 2016, the Sundown Shootout will move away from the traditional trail combinations that utilised the end half of Whoop Whoop. 2016 will see riders sprinting down the Happy Endings trail before popping over the fire road in to what can only be described as an epic piece of trail, the Paper Trail.
Putting technical skills to the challenge, riders will have to negotiate multiple rock gardens, tight turns and a few jumps before being crowned the
2016 Sundown Shootout Champion.
The technical aspects of Paper Trail will allow the riders to put on a good show for spectators whether it’s a display of pure speed, a display of air time or in the case of Sam Hill… a display of both!
The Sundown Shootout is contested by the Top 20 Men, Top 10 Women, a number of skilled special invites and the local riders from the Margaret River Off Road Cycling Association (who always seem to show up in fancy dress!)
After a practice session, each rider will have one shot at laying down the fastest possible time. Up for grabs are critical time bonuses that count towards the Cape to Cape MTB overall, along with $2,500 in cold hard cash!
Getting There and Parking
Entry to the Sundown Shootout will be a right hand turn off Carters Road in to the bottom end of The Pines just after crossing the creek bridge.
This, along with parking directions, will also be signposted from this point onwards.
Spectators are able to access the whole course by foot after parking in the general parking area located on Baker Road and walking east until they reach the start line where the Happy Endings trail crosses Baker Road.
