Enduro (Wellington)

ALL MOUNTAIN ENDURO  

Sunday, 19 May 2019

The final Enduro for the year will be at the beautiful venue Val du Charron in Wellington. Stage information will be released at a later stage, looking at 4 or 5 stages for the day. E bikes are welcome to join, remember there needs to be more than 10 E bikes to qualify for podium.


You will pass the waterpoint multiple times stocked with water, Powerade, Coke, jellies, fruit, Redbull. Return your number board to us afterwards and we will give you a free beer (or Powerade / Redbull). Piza e vino will be ready with your morning coffee and now serve breakfast too and that delicious pizza for afterwards. The setting for this venue is spectacular.


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.

VENUE OFFERING:

Piza e Vino will have two pizza offerings available. See their website for more

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: 

Must 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

MORE ABOUT ENDUROS:

The first event was held at Dirtopia MTB Festival, Greyton in December’12 and proved to be a lot of fun. We’d like to bring you more of this great riding and improve the system in the process.


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 and even be timed on some of these sections. We will make most of the jeeptracks and roads ‘neutral’ or ‘liaison’ sections. You will still be required to ride these. The overall descent of the race will be more than the uphill.

Support
Waterpoint with fruit 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.

Timing
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.

IMPORTANT!
1. Only ride with your own TrailTag & ALL entrants must have a permanent Trail Tag
2. Wear the tag around your right wrist like a watch. Not around your ankle please.
3. The reader is powerful enough to read through arm warmers etc.
