Vitus First Tracks Enduro - Round 1, Bigwood
Race Details:

The Vitus First Tracks Enduro Cup is a Mountain bikers dream It will test your skill, fitness and metal on some of the finest trails in Northern Ireland. Our goal is to create a friendly atmosphere – so you can relax, ride with your friends and get down to the serious business of ‘bragging rights!’

Round 1 - Bigwood, Warrenpoint, Co Down

There are 4 races in 2021 and each venue has its own unique set of challenges. Riders will visit some of Northern Ireland’s most iconic mountain biking destinations along the way. It is aimed at intermediate – advanced riders that will race individually against the clock on the best terrain available at each venue.

Each race consists of up to 6 timed stages consisting of natural single track/ trail centre and are mostly gravity orientated. The lap including transitions and stages are approximately 16-24km. Stage times will be added together for a total time that will decide positions in each category. Transitions are mainly on fire road or single track and are NOT timed. Riders can chill with friends and make their way to the next stage at their own pace. Keep in mind there will be a time limit and cut offs in place for rider safety although this is set at a relaxed pace. The important bits are the descents! We are using the most reliable, non contact timing system available so riders can focus on the fun part. Specific information for each round will become available to competitors via email, social media and a briefing on the run up and at each event.

Some of the new event guidelines are still unclear so we have put a limit of 250 per day. This is based on a “first come first served basis”. We may increase this and we may also be forced to reduce the numbers. Our advice is to enter early. The plan is to split the categories each day, which you will choose when entering:

Saturday
- Youth (12-13)
- Junior (14-16)
- Under 21 Men (17-20)
- Senior Men (21-29)
- Master A Men (30-34)

Sunday
- Master B Men (35-39)
- Veteran Men (40-49)
- Super Veteran Men (50+)
- E-bike
- Hardtail Men (21+)
- Women (14+)

There is an entry fee increase to allow for the additional medical cover, PPE and timing costs etc. I hope you understand but this is something we have to allow for. As you would expect there will be other changes to our normal schedule, set up and rules. We will just have to work through the current Government/ Cycling Ireland guidelines at the time.

Riders must hold a current Cycling Ireland race licence (or equivalent) or purchase a one day licence when entering.
Cycling Ireland will NOT be offering one day licence to riders UNDER 18 (age on the day) - you need to be a member of Cycling Ireland.
See http://www.cyclingireland.ie/page/membership/join-cycling-ireland for more details and to join.

ENSURE YOUR MATES ARE INCLUDED IN THE SERIES POINTS LEAGUE

If you are entering anyone else in this event ask them for their SiEntries ID (not the same as their SI-Card number). If they have not registered, please ask them to do so by visiting www.sientries.co.uk. Once you have their SiEntries ID, surname and postcode, you will be able to enter them without needing to type in any of their personal details. This will mean that their results at events in this series can be linked together and they can receive an overall series placing. Remember: Points will only be added to riders registered on SiEntries – mates don’t let mates miss out on points!
