WSMTB are pleased to announce that we will be running Round 1 of the Enduro series at Yellomundee.
Enduro, as defined by AusCycling, are races that include liaison stages and special stages. The times taken to complete special stages are accumulated to give an overall total time. An Enduro course comprises of varied off-road terrain. The track should include a mixture of narrow and wide, slow and fast paths and tracks over a mixture of off-road surfaces. Each timed stage must be predominately descending, but small pedalling or uphill sections are acceptable. Liaison stages can include either mechanical uplift (e.g. chairlift), pedal-powered climbs or a mixture of both. The emphasis of the track must be on rider enjoyment, technical and physical ability.
GE races include liaison stages and special stages. Special stages comprise of varied off-road terrain. Special stages are predominately descending but small pedalling or uphill sections are often included. Liaison stages are untimed and are used to transport riders to the start of each special stage. Liaison stages can include either mechanical uplift, pedal powered climbs or a mixture of both. There will be 5-8 special stages per round, Riders will be required to attempt each special stage during a set time frame. Times for all stages will be accumulated and counted towards each rider’s final time.
The event will take place at Yellomundee Regional Park - Yellomundee Regional Park
The event will be using the existing trail network, with each timed stage focusing on the more technical descending trails at the venue. A typical stage will be rideable on any kind of Mountain Bike. However, a Dual Suspension Trail bike would be most suitable.
