Dawn to Dusk Enduro 2016 – Registration
Up to 4 races run concurrently as part of the Dawn to Dusk Enduro event. Here’s a quick summary to help you choose the right one for you…
A standalone event run on the Saturday afternoon – designed especially for younger riders, over the age of 10 and under 16 years old on the 27th August 2016 – avoiding any extreme sections but still tough enough to provide a challenge.
The start on Saturday will be group starts by classes, with the Senior class leading the first wave starting at 10:00am. The remaining class will then follow after a minute.
Junior class for 10 and 11 year olds.
Intermediate class for 12 and 13 year olds.
Senior class for 14 and 15 year olds.
The race will finish when the chequered flag goes out for the lead rider in the senior class at the two-hour mark.
6 Hour Race
The perfect introduction to endurance racing off-road style, favoured by most first-time riders. The 6 hour race is for solo’s or 2 man teams in the sportsman class.
The start of the 6 hour enduro on Sunday 28th August will be a Le Mans start, (i.e. a short run to your bike from a standing start) with groups leaving in classes – the first wave starting at 1:00 pm. This means you will need to have your bike on the start line from 12:15 pm on.
Once lined up, you will be allowed to warm up your bikes, and then all engines MUST be switched off at 12:55 pm.
For the 6 hour enduro entrants there will be a riders briefing on Sunday morning, at 11am, in the main marquee. There will also be a Video of the sighting lap in the marquee on both Saturday from 9.30pm and running continuously into Sunday for all other races.
12 Hour Race
The Daddy – the original race format from which the whole event takes its name, a real tester for individuals and teams alike. For solo riders, 2 and 3 man teams across all classes.
The start of the 12 hour enduro on Sunday 28th August will be a Le Mans (i.e. a short run to your bike from a standing start) start, with groups leaving in classes – the first wave starting at 7:00 am. This means you will need to line up your bike on the start line at 6:15 am on.
Once lined up, you will be allowed to warm up your bikes, and then all engines MUST be switched off at 6:55 am.
For 12 hour enduro entrants there will be a riders briefing on Saturday evening, at 8:30pm, in the main marquee. There will also be a Video of the sighting lap in the marquee on both Saturday from 9.30pm and running continuously into Sunday for all other races.
24 hour race…
The Beast! perhaps the ultimate off-road challenge in the UK. Individuals and teams of up to 3 riders pit themselves against the Mountain, the weather, and their own physical reserves for a whole night and day. The night lap – from the start, is a shorter 7 mile loop running for the initial 12 hours of the race. Good lights are a must! Each rider must also have a red light on their back clothing in case you leave your bike at night.
The start of the 24 hour enduro on Saturday 27th August will be a Le Mans start (i.e. a short run to your bike from a standing start), with groups leaving in classes – the first wave starting at 7:00 pm. This means you will need to be on the start line with your bike no later than 6:15 pm.
Once lined up, you will be allowed to warm up your bikes, and then all engines MUST be switched off at 6:55 pm.
For the 24 hour enduro entrants there will be a sighting lap of the night section for all riders between 2.00pm – 4.00pm on Saturday afternoon. There will be a riders briefing on Saturday afternoon, at 5:00pm, in the main marquee. (the main sighting lap course will be shown through out the night and during the morning)
The Practice Track
This year we’ve decided to lay on a special event on the Saturday afternoon, you can enter as a pre-race shakedown or just hone your skills! Practice entry will be just £15 per rider (£10 if pre-registered) and numbers will be strictly limited.
As well as giving you a chance to test out final adjustments and warm-up the joints and muscles, it will ease the wait until start time, plus provide supporters and spectators with something interesting and fun to watch…!
The course will be adjacent to the main starting area for ease of access for riders and spectators alike.
The race will consist of a single lap shoot-out on a short mx style special stage, with a few added obstacles thrown in for a little more “fun”. It will be nothing like an extreme enduro section, just something to ride around (or over) to make things more …..interesting…
A small grid will start each heat, with the last few across the line eliminated. Qualifiers will progress to the next round and we’ll keep doing the same until we’re down to a final shoot-out – First three across the line take the glory!
First round elimination heats will begin at 1.00pm and end at 4.00pm.
Then we get serious and run the elimination rounds until we have a small enough grid for a final shoot out!
Signing on for this special event runs from 9.00am until 2.30pm in the main marquee..
…1st prize is £100, 2nd gets £50 and 3rd home gets £25 – not a bad return…
