All Mountain Delvera Enduro

Venue: Delvera Farm Start time: 11h00 - Dirtopia Trail Centre (Delvera) & registration opens at 08h00

 

Enduro Riding:  The concept is a lot of fun – 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!

Four stages planned for this event.

 

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.

Pre-entry cost : R250 for non-members and R225 for Amarider members for one day.  Please note that ONLY pre-entries will be accepted! Includes permit & refreshment station.

General: Product prizes & medals to be won. Trail Centre open all day for snacks & drinks, Simonsberg Café sells sandwiches and have lunch menu. No private picnics please.

MORE ABOUT ENDUROS:

The first event was held at Dirtopia MTB Festival, Greyton in December’12 and Dirtopia hosted three more in 2014. 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.
