Enjoyro 2019

A fun and (mostly) fear-free experience for the enduro-curious, younger riders – or just those with not enough time for a full on enduro weekend. Or even if you just fancy a good day of enduro fun.

Welcome to the third year of our introductory-level enduro race, designed to provide a sweet way in to the joy of enduro racing. This is Enjoyro!

This year we’re moving to Innerleithen as part of the Transcend Bike Festival. More bikes + more activities = more fun.

Enjoyro is for have-a-go enduro riders who might feel slightly intimidated by the perceived commitment, technical difficulty or length of normal enduro races. It’s also intended as a taster event for both adults and younger riders (age 12 and older*). Don’t worry if you spot people taking part who looks like they’re very experienced enduro types – chances are they’re accompanying one of the kids or a less experienced enduropal™. They’re not there to hunt you down (unless they’re your own off-spring perhaps).

Singletrack Magazine Editors Choice Award winner 2017

Chipps Chippendale said “I loved being able to ‘race’ in an unpressured environment; just me against the trail, and it seemed that the other racers also relished the chance to pin a number on and race on trails that are tough enough if you’re trying to go fast.”

About the course

The course has been carefully chosen to use enjoyable, flowy sections of trails in Innerleithen and a few natural sections too. It’s a good bit shorter than our Triple Crown enduro courses, and technically fairly straightforward. Please note there is no official practice day scheduled. All the trails are readily accessible and will generally be familiar to those who have ridden at Innerleithen before. The course will be published a good few weeks in advance too, so riders will have a good idea of what to expect, and the possibility of practicing informally in advance.

But the fun factor will still be turned up to full volume, with the start and finish in the Transcend Festival Village. The race also uses TweedLove’s enduro SI Entries timing system, with stages all fully taped, timed, marshalled and set up to our full enduro quality control.

It’s a proper enduro race course, just a bit and shorter and easier than most! Prizes for various categories will be detailed in the riders notes, but spot prizes and a sense of enduro brother-and-sister-hood will be the order of the day.

Overall the course is likely to be around 20km with around 4-500m of up and down to pedal.

A brand new way to race – for children age 12 or 13 riding with a responsible adult. Racing one after the other, both riders will have a timing chip and receive their own race times. Combined times will be available, but the final race results are for individual riders just like a normal enduro. The entry fee covers both riders.

Categories are dependant on entry numbers, and will be announced on the website and in the riders notes prior to the event.

Race Notes and all info will be emailed to all entrants prior to the event. The race will have at least three stages, all of which are downhill stages, but some may contain uphill sections.
