Entry sent. I am probably going to try it weather I win or not but a free first time would be even better. If I do I will have a ton of questions about this Enduro thing. Time keeping seems complicated even if it is a restart type race you still have to match certian times for a given section right. That is what I get from the reading anyway.

Colemd, I got your entry for the raffle. To anwser your question regarding the format:

We'll be using a restart format. All checks are known, no timekeeping required.

There will be posted times to start each section. You will start when your number comes up and run as hard as you can till the end of that particular test section.

Then there will be what is refered to as a 'transfer section'. You'll want to ride this at a reasonable pace to the next check in for the next test. When you arrive you'll wait till your number/time comes up and ride that section.

Gas stops for the event will be back at the camping area. You'll be able to grab a drink and a bite and head out for another loop.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

See you there.

Jeff

There are two sections to the race track. Special Tests and Transfers. Ride as fast as you can in the Specials. Ride relaxed in the Transfer. There are checkpoints that separate the sections. When you start a Special, there is a designated time to start, this is your minute. You will go through this with all the other riders on you minute.

Enduro's are scored with points. For every second you are in a special, you get a point. If you are late, you get a certain amount of points depending on how late you are. Rider with the lowest point total at the end of the day wins.

In no way is the a poker run. This is a real race with challenging terrain. C riders will usually not have to ride the difficult stuff that AA/A/B riders do.

Restart format are the easiest enduro's to learn. :)

In an enduro each race you are issued a different number by the promoter, unless your an AA rider. I buy the 3" stick on numbers at Wallymart. Some guys just put duct tape or white card board, paper plate, on their number plate and use a big marker to write the numbers. Some promoters will have stick on numbers available at the race Most races also have a A,B,C, or D after your number, again not all. So a typical number might be 34D or 12C or somthing like that. This is a pretty basic explanation of the number thing let me know if you have more questions.
