The Format

The Mini Enduro’s take place over one day and will be of a shorter distance to allow riders to practice the stages before the start of the race later in the day.

The format is Mash Up for this race so you can ride together with no start times and you can ride the stages in any order as many times as you can.

The stages will be all gravity with no uphills, just blasting down some of the best off piste trails.

Distance will vary but expect around 10 miles to complete all the stages on the route.

The transitions will follow the marked route to keep everyone going in the right direction.

Your are not timed between the stages but you are given a stage start time to try to keep everyone in their categories.

All stage times will be added together to produce the overall results for each category.

Quote from Sean Bacon from the last race “Great fun races the mini’s. Can’t recommend them enough.”
