About our events

1X Enduro is about having fun and testing yourself by racing in an Enduro format over a shorter event.

There are 4 stages per race day all with professional timing on every stage. After a timed stage you make your way (transfer) in between, these transfers are not timed and do not count for the overall standing. Although we do set a last arrival time.

The Detail

  • Professional timing on all stages.
  • Four stages all timed live.
  • All four stage times will be added together and fastest cumulative total time will used for the results.

Hardtail Bikes?

If your weapon of choice is something like the Orbea Laufey or you have made your own trail weapon then why not race it in a category that is fair.

E-Bikes?

Pedal Assist Bicycles are get for riders who need them, have a health issue, that doesn’t mean that you cant keep up your hobby. Fed up of riding back to the top at your local bike park, it doesn’t matter we have a special e-Bike category to race against each other.

Pro-Am?

This category is for the more experienced racers to have some fun racing and get some practice in for other UK and Worldwide events.

Overtaking Slower Riders

We all have our speed of racing some are fitter & faster then others which can lead to fast riders catching up slower riders on the stage.

If a faster rider is behind you on a timed stage, be polite and allow them to pass. If you are the faster rider, be patient and give lots of warning and clear directions as to what side you will pass. For example; shout left, if you intend to pass on the left hand side of the rider in front.

If you over take a slower rider on the stage then you can continue in front of the slower rider for the start of the stage. This will stop the faster rider always catching the same rider again in the next stage.

Time Controls (TC)

At the start of each stage there will be a time control. In the interest of safety each stage has a cut off time. You must reach the TC no later then your start time which you will be advised of with your stage start times.
