Who can race it?

This is friendly enduro racing without a tight schedule: You can pick the order in which to tackle the race stages, which makes this event social and action-packed at the same time! You can do up to five runs on each stage, the fastest one counts and there are no start orders, which means whatever category you’re in, you can ride together and still lock your own best race run in!

There are many age categories in this event – a solid field of Elites and semi-pros in the Expert (19+) and Veterans (30+) across male and female classifications, with big groups of mates chasing each other on the race tracks. One of the strongest representations we get in the Masters (40+ / 50+ / 60+) with a good third of competitors in those fields – many of them racing with their juniors and families!

Our junior truly bring the event to life – over one third of racers are usually Under 17 years old with competitors as young as 10 at the start lines. The junior podiums generally are always full across boys and girls categories with U13, U15 and U17s as well as U19’s smashing it out on the trails.

We are offering a buddy system for the races – parents or guardians can race themselves and be with their juniors all day because of our flexible timing system. However, we also offer them to accompany young competitors out on track for free as buddies or marshals. This can be arranged on the day with our registration crew.
Get ready for an absolute adrenaline rush as you smash down our Superflow race tracks to hunt down those precious seconds for the win!

Ride to start un-timed: You ride to the starts un-timed, which means you can spend all day together with mates, your partner or the junior frothers!

Three timed race stages, up to five runs on each, fastest time on each counts! That’s 45 possible race runs! Within a set timing window you complete a set of timed race stages down – the faster you go, the more challenging it gets! Race face on – photos included!!

No start-order! No worries! We have a flexible timing system so you can pick yourself when to race which stage – up to 5 runs on each!

Generally, you pick your race day, Saturday or Sunday – check the individual race pages for the venue-specific set up. There are usually 3 timed race tracks and we aim at a race time of 10-15 minutes.

LIVE timing: Start and finish of each race stage is automatic; we will have marshalls in place. Cross the line, check your result on your phone!
