Racing and Results

  • We will be using a different timing System for this event – Transponder on your wrist as normal but the rider will not have to tag in or out.. They can just ride through the start line and finish line. Please Remember to return your tag at the finish!
  • There are 3 timed stages.
  • Competitors are not timed on transition sections.
  • Each stage is approximately 80% downhill, 20% flat or uphill.
  • Warning: One or just sections of each course are a little steep…So be careful – everything will be sign posted – all features are rollable – Not many features such as big jumps or drops, so don’t worry 😀
  • We recommend using your first stage attempt as a reconnaissance effort (i.e. take it easy), which could allow you to obtain a better time on your second attempt.
  • Stages are open from 10 am to 3 pm and can be ridden as many times as you want in any order you want.
  • During busy stage starts, competitors will be set off at 30-second intervals. If there is no queue you can take as much time as needed. Please listen to the marshals at the start gates!
  • Full results will be available on this website and the Grassroots Enduro series Facebook page soon after the event.
