Enduro riding – how it works

Timings 

Saturday 8th June

Race registration (tbc) 

Sunday 9th June – Race Day

7.30am – 10am: Timing chip collection (and event registration)

8.45am and 10.30am: Event Briefing – mandatory (you must attend one of these briefings)

9.00am – 1.00pm  : Riders start

5pm: Prize presentations (approx)

The course is made up of taped race stages with marked transitions. Riders are expected to race the timed stages and then transition to the next stage in  a specific order. All riders are given a sticker that shows their start time, a start time for stage and a completion time. The stage start times provide a guide ensure that the complete the course within the allotted time.

The race starts at approx 9.00am on Sunday 18th August. The course will not be available for practice however there is the opportunity to watch riders tackle the stages on Saturday so you can identify those good and bad lines. 

Full details including course information will be sent to entrants as a pdf download approximately  a week before the race.

Riders are not seeded, so you can ride with your buddies as long as you register together at event HQ and so get the same start waves. You are still given guide times to start each stage, and there’s an overall course completion time – penalties apply if you don’t make it. There’s more chance of being before or after a rider who is considerably faster or slower than you, but with less stress on the transition times, it’s a more sociable choice for many. 

Full details including course information will be sent to entrants as a pdf download approximately  a week before the race.
