How Does Gravity Enduro Work?

Gravity Enduro is basically a large adventure loop with timed descents. After leaving in category order, riders will start each competition stage individually with minimum of 30 seconds between each competitor. At the end of the day, the fastest combined time overall on the competition stages is the category winner

Number of riders
