Doug Wisor Memorial Enduro
10am – Sunday 4th November, 2018
6 Enduro stages, over a mix of grades 2 (Easy) – 4 (Advanced) trails totalling 16.1km, thru the Mill + Replanted Blocks of Pan Pac Eskdale MTB Park, with shuttle uplifts between some of the stages, all run in a set order.
The AvantiPlus Hastings mini enduro is a fun category for the not-so-adventurous thru the 3 “easier” stages – all grade 2 (Easy) & 3 (Intermediate) trails (total of 7.1km).
* A course map will be released here, 3 weeks prior to the event.
What is Enduro?
Cruise-up (untimed) and Race-down against the clock. Welcome to the most fun you’ll ever have mountain-biking! The sport of Enduro encapsulates everything people love about the sport of mountain-biking – the adventure, challenge, adrenaline fix, combined with fun social riding: and at the same time teases out the little bit of competitiveness and thrill-seeker we all have inside of us.
Electronic timing, just like what the pro’s use in the Enduro World Series, will be used.
Prize-money will be up for grabs for the winners of each DWEnduro category ($50 each), plus a bonus $50 for the overall winner.
The overall local resident winner will win the coverted memorial trophy.
