I have never ridden an enduro and in the hare scrambles series I have been riding C 4-stroke.

I got my pre-entry back a few days ago and noticed they are having an E Class at this event. This would probably be a really fun ride for those of you looking for a good organized trail ride.

This is a great opportunity to ride a portion of an enduro course and to possibly see how enduros work. ...and you're not required to race, for typically the "E" class is not scored.

From the description of what the "E"s will do it sounds like it would be a great ride. The club putting on the Jackhammer has always layed out a good course, so I'd bet the first loop would be a lot of fun for everyone.

If you've got concerns for entry fees and membership fees it might help to know that there are options in this area, and/or those memberships are good for other opportunities too. You can read more from the flyer. Here's a link: Jackhammer Enduro Flyer

I believe this is a rare opportunity within the District 36 Enduro Series, because I don't recall seeing "E" classes at any of the other series' events. Hey, Bigbob, maybe this is a good warm-up for that family enduro you're wanting to do? And if you all plan it right I'd bet you could get a group of TTers all within a group of minutes as so you all could ride together.

Your bike should have the ability to do 50 miles on a tank of fuel. The route sheet for the event is posted on the D36 site and it looks like the first loop is about 46 ground miles and the second is about 40 miles. There is a fuel stop between the two loops where if you're on time you can get 30 minutes to re-fuel your bike and your body.

The senior class is 40 to 49 year-olds, the super-senior class is 50 to 59 year-olds, and the vet class is 30 to 39 year-olds. BTW, the senior class is usually the biggest and now appears to be the most competitive.

With enduros the competitors never know where the course is. In fact, if a competitor rides any part of the course 24hrs prior to the start of the event that competitor can be disqualified from the event. The course is supposed to be a secret.

I believe sign-ups are open on Saturday and on Sunday morning until about 9:30am. You can sign up for the event when you get there.

If the distance is a concern you might want to consider riding the "E" class, for that class only does the first 45 mile loop.
