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 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.
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.
Riders participate as individuals and results are produced on a ‘per day’ and ‘overall’ basis.
Waterpoint with fruit 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.
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.
