FOFO CLASSIC

Our homage to the origins and pioneers of mountain biking.  It is “Foot Out Flat Out” down the Mt Buller Summit Road.

Loose gravel, dirt road and big sweeping bends.  It’s designed to be a load of fun with lots of laughs.

The Le Mans style start will see riders run to their bike (about 30m), jump on and point down.

Allocated corners will be designated mandatory “Foot Out” corners.  If you don’t stick your foot out you are ineligible to win – pretty simple rule.

Entry is included in your Blowout ticket.

Categories: Male & Female across: 17 & under; Open; 40 & over.  (Minimum 3 competitors required for a field to exist).  The field will the allocated into heats at random.  Placement in the heat qualifies you for the final.

Getting to the start: grab a shuttle from 2.30pm in the Gravity Zone Shuttle pick-up in Tyrol Car Park.  Or you can pedal up.

Racing starts: 3pm

Racing finishes: by 4pm in time for the Blue Dirt Street Party and FREE beer at Village Bike Cafe.

Winners presentation: at the Street Party.

Note: this is not a ride off the Mt Buller summit.  The FOFO start is near the water reservoir.

B-1:  Blowout Minus One

This gathering kind of grew and grew over the years.  Riders would get to Blowout the day before and congregate.  Stories would be spun.  Fun would be had.  A few cold drinks would be consumed.

We unofficially called in Blowout Minus One (B-1) for a while as it was the day before the event.

The fun grew and so did the congregation of riders.  So we now invite all Blowout crew to B-1.

It kicks off from 5pm Friday 22 April.  Cold drinks and a full menu at reasonable prices.  Food service stops at 8.30pm.

Live music playing from the stage throughout the night.   Come in straight off the trail or come in dressed to impressed.  We don’t care – just come and have a good time.

The venue location remains a secret, but will be in the Mt Buller village.  B-1 is only open to Blowout ticket holders.  You receive a text message on the day revealing the location – which will be walking distance to all accommodation in the Mt Buller village (give or take some ups and downs).

It’s a great way to start your Blowout weekend.  See you there…

What happens at B-1; stays at B-1!
