BNES National Champs – Exmoor – 24th & 25th July 12 Stage Enduro (BNES Points)

Useful info:

12 stages 15 miles, 2700ft per day Start of the race is from the race village NOT the top of the hill (This will be somewhere near the open area of the race village). Riders will be set off a 20sec gaps from the start of stages but if you are riding in a group with your mate and want to go fastest rider first with as smaller gap this if fine. Riders can request a gap up to 40sec. Wear your helmet at all times when on your bike, both on transitions and stages (repeat offenders will be DQ).

The venue is a private woodland. You can’t ride here outside of event, It will seriously jeopardize future events. On that note Strava on private settings only!! Before practice please sign on to collect your number board and timing chips Race Format The race is a ‘gravity enduro’ style race. The course is split into 7 separate timed descents, and the times for each of these descents will be added together to get the rider’s overall time. Between each descent stage is a transition stage, these are not timed.

We will also be changing the format a bit and have the usual cv19 restrictions we are all getting used to. We will put together detailed email for the racers on what, why and why but here are the highlights:
