Shifty Fifty Roll’d Gold

The renowned Baco Trails in Castlemaine will again feature on the Shifty Fifty calendar for 2024 with the Roll’d Gold event scheduled for Sunday 2 June.  The Shifty Fifty Series is a very specific set of Mountain Bike races in Victoria aimed at the sweet spot of mountain biking.  Each race is 50kms only!

The Roll’d Gold event will showcase some of the fast, flowy and fun riding around Castlemaine.  There’s a bunch of memorable singletrack that will take you through box-ironbark woodland areas of historic gold mining activity.  This route features undulating terrain with generally flowy trails on smooth, sometimes loose, dirt surfaces.  As to be expected in central Victoria there are some rocky sections and steeper climbs and descents.

A new addition in 2024, Casltemaine Flow Duro is all about testing your descending skills on fun trails and singletrack. The stages will be approx 3 to 7 min. With very little uphill and only the descents are timed so it’s perfect for everyone, including our eMTB friends.

Oh and don’t forget eMTBs are always welcome at all rounds of the Shifty Fifty.  Plus there is a 25km course available for those seeking a less demanding outing.

This event is being delivered by Castlemaine Rocky Riders and Bendigo MTB Club.
