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; 45 & 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 3pm in the Gravity Zone Shuttle pick-up in Tyrol Car Park.  Or you can pedal up.

Racing starts: 3.30pm

Racing finishes: by 4.30pm in time for the Keg Party and FREE beer at Village Bike Cafe.

Winners presentation: at the Blowout Party from 8.30pm.

Note: this is not a ride off the Mt Buller summit.  The FOFO start is near the new 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 comrades to B-1.

It kicks off from 5pm Friday 23 April.  Cold drinks and build your own Kransky Sausages at reasonable prices.  What comrade doesn’t like a good Kransky.  Food service stops at 8.30pm.

This year sees the introduction of the “Fully Blown” Cocktail.  We’re still in design phase for this beverage and happy to receive (and try) your suggestions.  Naturally it will be offered at Happy Hour prices.

There be some background music, MTB videos projected on to a wall.  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…

Whats a “Build Your Own Kransky”?  Simple, buy a plain Kransky & bread roll and then add your own toppings eg cheese, pickles, onions, chillies, sauces, etc.  All dietary requirements catered for.

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