NEWTONS 2019 April 5, 2019 to April 7, 2019

ASRA welcomes you all to the biggest and longest running gravity event in Australia hosted at the iconic Mount Panorama. Join us on April 5th-7th in Bathurst, Australia pushing equipment and body to the limit.

If you are travelling internationally we recommend you fly into Sydney and find transport from there. Please feel free to use this event page to coordinate your plans! The hill is approximately 3 hours away. The alternative to finding a ride is to fly, however this is expensive.

We will in time release a full day by day run-list of all activities that will be taking place. As always, we will be throwing hay on Thursday so if you’re in town we would really appreciate you join us as many hands make light work.

Camping as always will be free on top of the mount, we are also organising a riders deal at Bathurst Goldfields (This is still TBC). If you don’t fancy either of these options, Rydges Bathurst is at the bottom of Conrod Straight.

Registration will be opening soon via the IDF website, we will notify all athletes immediately when it goes live.

We look forward to seeing all of your smiles!

Newtons 2018

There has been a bit of confusion with the dates of Newtons in 2018, but we have finalised a date: April 6th, 7th and 8th at Mt Panorama Bathurst.

After the Newtons 2017, we decided to move Newtons closer to Asia tour (Philippines, South Korea and China). As the Philippines race is usually held over Easter, we thought a week before Easter was the best date.  The would put a second event two weeks before Easter. Unfortunately we could not get the date we wanted, and decided to swap our dates with TTT. This put TTT too close to the Commonwealth Games (I know that makes no sense), and no where to go. ASRA had to move Newtons to either the week before TTT (that date was unavailable) or make the hard decision to move the event away from TTT and closer to Asia.

The Philippines race has moved out of Easter, leaving the weekend after Easter free for Newtons.

Tame the Taipan is 23rd-25th March 2018
Newtons IDF World Cup is 6th-8th April 2018
