RETURN OF THE ZOMBIE GOAT ENDURO

Presented by Southern Enduro Tour | Powered by Slaughter Trail Guides

 

The Southern Enduro Tour (SET) visits Texas, Arkansas and Oklahoma offering the best variety of terrain in the mid-west and creating a regional championship that is both challenging and fun for any mountain biker that is seeking a premium race experience. At the season finale the SET will crown competitors as the best all-around Racers

Full details about SET and the other races in the tour can be found at https://www.southernendurotour.com/

 

The 2023 SET opens at Flat Rock Ranch in Comfort, Texas!

The race is rated | Skill-8 | Fitness-8 | Gnar-5

This is a two day event with up to 7 stages each day with 15-20 miles on day 1 and less than 15 miles on day 2 of riding. All enduro Racers will race both Saturday & Sunday.

A two day event means there will be racing both days (Saturday & Sunday in this case) and most pre-riding will be done on the Friday prior.  All Racers, regardless of age or category, will race the same course and stages.  There will B line options for more difficult areas – or walk anything you do not feel comfortable riding. Stages must be completed in order, and only one time, unless otherwise noted.

To keep our production quality high there will be a cap on total number of Racers.  Once that number has been reached registration will be closed.  If it is at least three days prior to the race a Wait List will be created (see Wait List section).  Plan accordingly and register as soon as possible so you do not miss out.

We will also offer a "Just Ride" category where participants can ride the enduro courses on Friday and Saturday during Pre-Ride and Sunday after the race is over. Just Ride participants cannot be on the course during the Enduro race. This is an untimed category and is not required if you are registered to do the timed Enduro race.  Event Swag & Post Race Meal included in Just Ride - no raffle ticket.  You can register via BikeReg.

#Once Racers have entered the stage line there is no cutting in line.

#All stages must be completed in order, and only once, unless otherwise noted in Racer Meeting by the Race Director.

#Timing stations will be placed at the start and finish of each stage. All Racers must stay on course during the stages and transitions. Veering off course is disrespectful to everyone from the landowner, race organizers, fellow competitors, and yourself.

#Any form of outside assistance or support such as non-racers, family members, friends or unapproved pit stops is forbidden. However, Racers are allowed and encouraged to help fellow competitors on the course.

#Stage Reruns are NOT ALLOWED for mechanicals, the racer crashing, or going off course unless discussed with and approved by the Race Director or Timing Director ONLY.  Only Racer impediment, safety hazards, or fellow Racer injury support warrants a re-run and must be approved by the Race Director or Timing Director ONLY prior to the re-run. Stage reruns can be seen by the Timing Director and do not disappear from the timing chips’ history regardless of time that has passed. Any unapproved re-runs, either intentional or unintentional, will result in a disqualification. Flat tires, bent wheels, broken chains, and ANY type of mechanical issue, or rider error is part of racing and does not warrant a re-run.

#Always stop for an injured Racer.  In the case of a downed Racer that receives assistance provided by another participant - the helping participant's time will be adjusted by averaging the lap times from the particular stage or a re-run will be authorized by the Race Director. The downed Racer may not qualify for a re-run. If you cannot contact the Race Director wait at the Timing tent until receiving directions.

#Do not change, adjust, or modify the course in any way. If you have a concern about a course feature, please present the concern to the Race Director with a picture and description of concern.

#Do not disrespect the land such as littering.

#In regard to Overall points - To earn points for a race, and for it to qualify towards Overalls, the Racer must complete the race in its entirety, being timed completely for each stage, and with no DNF.  The race must also be completed on a bicycle and not any other form (hiking, running, etc.)

Racers deviating from any of SET Rules can and/or will be time penalized and possibly be disqualified from the race.

 

Overalls

Participants will register for the category they will remain in for the series to qualify for Overalls. You cannot change categories after the second stop and you must notify the Timing Director at [email protected] if you are changing your category prior to that.  Failure to let us know of a category change can impact your series overall points negatively.  If you race in different categories the results will not be combined for overall results.

The Tour Overall is your best 4 out of 5 results. You must finish 3 races to qualify for the overall. In the event that there is a tie in the overall - each Racers next best finish will be calculated into the overall score until the tie is broken. If two Racers have completed all 5 races and still have tied points - total race time will be calculated and the lower times advances into the overall position.

PLEASE ENSURE YOU REGISTER USING THE SAME NAME FOR EACH STOP or your Overall points will be affected.

 

Camping, Lodging, & Venue Info

Tent, car, hammock, sleeping bag, etc. camping as well as RV spots are available at the race venue; Flat Rock Ranch.  There are also hotel, Airbnb, and cabin options in the area.
