North Coast Enduro Series KIWARRAK GRAVITY ENDURO It’s now time to hit the trails at Taree in the great atmosphere that is, enduro racing in Australia. The North Coast Enduro Series caters for all levels of riders from the A line elite riders to the first-time riders out for a great day with family and friends.
All riders must have a current Auscycle Race Membership or purchase a Race Day Licence.Membership must be valid on the date of the event for which you are registering. If your membership expires before the date of the event, you must renew your membership before entering this event. You will be required to show your membership on the day.
Safety: FULL FACE HELMET Helmets are compulsory. Riders under the age of 17 are required to wear a long sleeved shirt, full finger gloves and knee and elbow pads. A neck brace is recommended but not compulsory. A helmet must be worn at all times including liaison stages; they must also be secured properly at all times.
SPECTATORS Spectators must report to registration in the event village and scan the QR codes to record their arrival time. Spectators are also asked to report to the registration desk before leaving to record their departure time. This is a COVID compliance requirement set out by State Health and will help to ensure racing can continue. Registration will open from 6:30 am to 9am To allow riders to spread out and minimise contact, there will be a 2 hours registration window in which you can pick up your race plate and start racing. Racing starts at 7am once you pick up your race plate riders will not be permitted to leave the event village until 7am. Please come to registration ready to race with your bike and all mandatory equipment on. (U17s, U15s, U13s that includes knee pads and elbow pads and gloves). Place your band with SIAC on your left wrist make sure it is tight and will not fall off, you are responsible for the SIAC if lost you will incur a $120 replacement fee You will have until 12pm to attempt all stages as many times as you like your fastest time on each stage will be kept. All stages must be attempted to complete the race. This will minimise lines at registration and at the beginning of stages.
START/FINISH When you come to each start line where people may be lined up, please ensure that you follow the bunting. At each Start there will be a start sign riders must be at a complete stop at this sign. From here you will be approx. 3 to 5 metres from the start box so you will have a running start. Give yourself at least 30 seconds between you and the rider before you even if you are confident they are faster then you, you can leave longer gaps if you feel you will catch the rider before you.
TIMING As usual all timing points are automated. When you pick up your SIAC we will ensure it is turned on test it before giving it to you. Our best advice is to put it on making sure it is well fitted and forget about it. Give each other as much space as possible. Because the timing is setup for multi runs of a stage if you move to close to a start or finish and trigger your SIAC you can simply wait for 1 minute then Start no need to panic. However starts and finishes are well bunted and signed so while not racing , spectating keep well clear of them. There will also be a finish marshal, roving marshals and COVID marshals ensuring everything is running smoothly. During the day you can checkin at the rego desk and see your times so far, either on the big screen or the live timing link provided.
FIRST AID First aid will be provided next to the registration Marque. If you come across an injured rider stop and help them and send the next rider that comes along to the finish to alert the marshal. They will stop racing on that stage and send for the medics. If you require medical assistance for any reason throughout the day, we urge you to see first aid in the event centre.
Race plates and stage start and finish signs have an emergency phone number on the back call that number for any assistance during the day.
FINISH When you finish a stage move clear of the finish line before stopping. If meeting up with friends at the end of a stage run, ensure to maintain social distancing. We will ensure that there is plenty of space at the finish of every stage. If it looks like it’s getting crowded, we will hold the start. Finish lines are also marked with a yellow sign the finish sign is located on the finish line ride past it at race speed and do no stop until you are well clear of the finish as not to impede other finishing riders.
RESULTS Results will be published LIVE throughout the weekend, so you can check your results. Results will be collated across categories and will be made official at the end of racing on Sunday.
