General Enduro Rules:
Enduro mountain bike racing is designed to be the definitive test for the mountain biker. The focus of each event is on creating a great atmosphere, community, competition and adventure for the competitor. It’s a format that allows riders to compete against each other on individual Timed Stages that are designed to challenge the rider’s technical and physical abilities.
Timed Stages will be mostly downhill and will test the rider’s technical skills. Enduro courses will use the best trails and terrain available. Fun will be the focus for the courses. It is possible that some climbs will be within Timed Stages.
For the untimed uphill sections racers will pedal or use lifts. Lifts may ONLY be used before designated timed stages. Each event will have unique rules regarding lift use. Racers will be disqualified for using a lift at other than before designated timed stages.
Total time from all the timed sections added together will determine finishing order. Ties will be broken by the last timed stage.
Course cutting by leaving the obvious trail will result in disqualification.
There will be no set start times. Racers may start at their leisure provided all Timed Stages are completed in the proper order. Once a racer starts a Timed Stage he may not restart that same Stage for any reason. No pre-riding of Timed Stages is allowed once the race starts.
Racers will be notified at registration or at the riders meeting when each Timed Stage will close. Riders arriving after the stage has closed will not be allowed to start and must return to the finish area. This will ensure the event finishes at a reasonable hour.
Racers being passed should yield when it is be safe to do so.
Helmets must be worn at all times on venues property while riding a bicycle.
Only one bike may be used per event.
Any age may race in the Pro open Class,
Any age may race in a younger class except for 19-29 racers.
Women can race in women’s classes or age groups.
In the spirit of fair play and good will racers may assist other racers with repairs, parts or tools. It is however recommended to carry everything that you’ll need including water, tools and tubes. Water stations may or may not be available on course.
