About WSMTB Enduro Racing

WSMTB are pleased to announce that we will be running an Enduro round at Blue Gum Lodge.

Enduro, as defined by AusCycling, are races that include liaison stages and special stages. Liaison stages have a maximum allowed time for the rider to complete without being penalised. 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.


Venue

The event will take place at Youthworks Blue Mountains Conference Centres - Youth Works Blue Gum Lodge , 6 Fels Ave, Springwood NSW 2777.

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.


Equipment

WSMTB recommend that riders wear knee and elbow pads.


Helmet Policy

In 2020 AusCycling changed its helmet policy. For category B Enduro events, full-face helmets are optional. Due to the less technical nature of Blue Gum compared to other venues, the club has categorised our events as a Category B event. As such full-face helmets are not mandatory for riders however you are free to wear one if you choose.
