All Mountain Enduro- Helderberg

All Mountain Enduro – HELDERBERG FARM

Sunday 21 August 2016

Venue:                 Helderberg Farm, Klein Helderberg Road, Somerset West Start time:          09h30 (after briefing) & registration opens at 08h30

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!

                                More information about the stages to follow a week before the 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 (closes 16 August):  R330 for non-members and R300 for Amarider members for one day.    Please note that ONLY pre-entries will be accepted - enter now!

General:              Product prizes & medals to be won.  There will be coffee & food for sale plus energy bars/drinks.

MORE ABOUT ENDUROS:

Dirtopia has organised fifteen Enduro events since 2012 and the focus is on the riding and having fun on the trails.

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, nuts etc will be placed at a strategic point 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.
