    All Mountain Enduro

    All day
    03/09/17

    To celebrate the coming of Spring, we’ll have a fun day on Klapmutskop – join us for four, perhaps 5 stages.

    Venue:  Dirtopia Trail Centre, Delvera Farm, R44, Stellenbosch
    Start time:  09h00 & registration opens at 08h00

    Enduro Riding: Have you done an Enduro event?  Then you know what it is about!  If not, then here is a summary: riders get timed only on certain sections, which make a very social event, especially at the refreshment station where they re-group. The atmosphere is relaxed with no rush anywhere, except when you gun it between check points!
    Total distance of riding not so relevant as riders ride to special stages in their own time and the timed stages are more like downhill racing, although all type of riders can attempt it.  Protective gear recommended.

    Timing: Have to own an Amarider Trail Tag. R100 or take a yearly Amarider membership of R225 and a Tag is included!  Watch out for the TAG POINTS at the beginning & end of each stage.

    Timing will be managed in real-time with @trailtag and riders will check in and out of the Special stages. This means that riders will enter special stages 1 by 1, so no bunfight to get trail position on the singletrack.
    Pre-entry cost: R375 for non-members and R350 for Amarider members for one day.  Please note that ONLY pre-entries will be accepted! Includes permit & refreshment station.
    General: Product prizes from Leatt, SRAM,  Csixx, Giant & Falke for top three male & female and other categories, should there be enough entries per age group.  Medals to all finishers. Trail Centre open all day for snacks & drinks, Dirtopia Café will be open for breakfast & lunch. No private picnics please. Coffee will be available from early morning too.

    MORE ABOUT ENDUROS:

    The concept
    Based on the successful Mavic Trans Provence concept the idea is to bring riding and the results linked to it back to mountain biking and away from the current endurance-only formats. That said, it is not the idea to make the race highly technical as per downhill racing, but simply to focus the competition on the trails component of the sport. And yes, perhaps your skinny tire 29’er carbon hardtail is perhaps not the best choice of bike, although the course will certainly be rideable on it!
    At the Dirtopia Enduro, you’ll still be climbing. We will make most of the jeeptracks and roads ‘neutral’ or ‘liaison’ sections with singletrack downhills the timed stages. The overall descent of the race will be more than the uphill.
    Support
    Waterpoint with fruit, Red Bull, nuts & jellies etc will be placed at a strategic point (Pepper Tree) to assist with rider support. The beauty of the format is that you can relax a bit at this station and catch your breath before tagging into the next Special Stage.
