The Races

Youth Race
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 Funduro Rodeo / Practice Course
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 come for this cash shoot-out on its own! Race 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…you might even end up with a bundle of crisp tenners!

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 1.30pm 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..

The Prizes
…1st prize is £100, 2nd gets £50 and 3rd home gets £25 – not a bad return…

Or you can use the course to warm up your skills ready for the 24hr, 12hr or 6hr races. Pay £15 for entering the Funduro /Practice and do just one or both. Practice from 10.30am to 1pm. Funduro from 1.30pm to 4pm and practice commences again at 5pm to 6pm.

Great opportunity to test your bike's suspension and hone your skills.

RACE NUMBERS

Provision of Race Stickers
Your registration fee includes the provision of bike stickers and a transponder. When you sign in at Registration (in the Main Marquee) we will supply you with two race stickers for you to apply to your bike and one transponder regardless of whether you are a solo rider or part of a team.

We allow Any Bike and Any Tyre to accommodate all enduro riders.

Stickers must be prominently displayed – firstly on the front number board, and secondly on the left hand side of the bike, if you only have one bike. If you have more than one bike, then place one sticker on each of the front number boards only.

Next you will need to visit the Marshal Marquee to have your bike checked (scrutineering). Once it has been passed by the marshals a colour coded sticker will be applied to your bike to indicate the race you are in and whether you are a solo or team rider.

Your Race Number can be found in the sidebar to the right or by clicking the following links:

ADULT RACE NUMBERS             KIDS RACE NUMBERS

Please Note: No bike will be allowed to race until Registration and Scrutineering have been completed. No stickers, no race. This is to ensure safety for you and fellow riders.
