Funnduro / Enduro

Saturday 29th of August 2020.

Presented by Funn, we are re-naming this event to the ‘Funnduro’

 

Taking in four short course stages on Saturday the 29th of August between 10:00 and 16:00. This will be the perfect introduction for those wishing to enter their first enduro event as well as for the seasoned racer. We will be utilising the popular ‘Mashup’ Format that allows you to be timed on each stage as many times as you can manage within the eight hour period. Your fastest logged time from each stage counts. With no fixed start times, this allows you to ride and race with your friends. Entries are limited to 300 riders with an entry fee of £27.00 plus the £3.00 booking fee. ENTER HERE.

Mountain biking is an inherently dangerous sport with the distinct possibility of severe injuries, or even worse. No matter where you ride or how well you know the course you should never ride beyond your skill level and always ride in control and in a sensible manner. Riding in control does not just mean being able to stop, it also means having the requisite skills to recognise and avoid potentially dangerous situations on the course. You must also be able to recognise where it is safe to stop on the course. Avoiding accidents with other riders is an essential mountain biking skill.

 

 

 

Riders must use the course in a sensible manner compatible with their level of experience. Riders should walk the course, observing current ground conditions, making yourself aware of any obstacles prior to riding the course. We ask riders to accept that they will ride the course at their own risk and accept that no liability can be accepted by the event organisers.

Entries are limited to 300 riders with an entry fee of £27.00 plus the £3.00 booking fee. ENTER HERE.
