**Enduro is a form of Mountain bike racing in which there is a greater proportion of downhill sections, which are timed, to uphill and cross country sections. This aims to test rider’s technical bike handling skills as well as providing endurance and climbing. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopaedia

How does it work?

The race route consist of three SPECIAL stages and three LIAISON stages.  The general classification of each race will be calculated by adding all the special stage times together of your complete run.  A run logged on Strava must contain ALL three SPECIAL stages for the day in order to count. LIAISON stages are not timed and you can take as long as you like to get to the next SPECIAL stage.

special stages:  a timed stage with at least 80% downhill gradient

 liaison stages :  non-timed sections used to get to the next  special stage

There will be an marker 50 meters before the start of each SPECIAL enduro segment.

The actual start of the segment will be marked with a “START” board. The finish of the segment will be marked with a “FINISH” board.

The route:

The compulsory route of liaisons and special stages will be clearly marked seen on the route map and which will be made available shortly.

The event will start and stop at the Play Pit close to Kleine Kuppe gate entrance.

You can enter as ‘Intermediate’ or ‘Advanced’.  Our new Scorpion trail is quite technical so we thought to swop it out with Peter Pan for the intermediate riders.

The four SPECIAL stages will be on Kudu (all), Granny (all), Scorpion (advanced only), Peter Pan (intermediate only) and Fireball (all).  The LIAISON stages will be along Kleine Kuppe JT to Special stage 1 (Kudu) via Rollercoaster.   The next liaison stage will be along Kleine Kuppe JT Oupa and Saddleback to get to Special stage 2 (Granny).  After Special stage 2 the liaison goes along Leopard’s loop JT, Lounge JT to get up to Special stage 3 (Scorpion) for the Advanced group only.  The Intermediate group will go along Serengeti, Leopards’ loop to their 3rd Special stage 3 (Peter pan).  The last liaison goes along Leopard’s loop JT and up Traders to Special stage 4 (Fireball).

Please Note:

There will be medics and two water points.

The SPECIAL stage route segments will be marked for ‘downhill traffic only’ during the Farm Fest period.  However, please still be alert for users not adhering to the signage.

Please clad yourself with the necessary padding and protection!

STRAVA WARS ROUTE MAP

 

Track layout map R1

The venue area is at Amphitheatre just off Three Sisters Jeep track. The green lines on the map indicate the routes to get to the start of each of the stages.  Please note that the routes are still under construction in areas.

The exact start / stop markers will be placed on the 15th of April together with the on-line Strava Segments so you can see your time for the particular segment.

Special Stage 1 – Stairways

Stairways ends at the Amphitheatre venue area.  The ‘Start’ can be reached by going up the Three Sisters Jeep Track and turning off into the Rock Garden Single Track.  Then turn up the back of the Stairways Single Track to get to top of the hill for the start.

Special Stage 2 – Oupa

Oupa can be reached by going up the Three Sisters Jeep track and turning off into the Switchback Single track.  Oupa is the first track off Switchback.

From the ‘Stop/End’ of the Oupa section you can make your way back to the Three Sisters Jeep Track by crossing the fence and taking the sneaky short cut.

Special Stage 3 – Granny

Granny can be reached by going up the Three Sisters Jeep track and turning off into the Switchback Single track.  Granny is the second track off Switchback.  Keep going on Granny until you see arrows pointing you further up the mountain to the start.  Close to top is a one-way track so to avoid clashing with downhillers, please just take a straight line through the bush to the top of the hill.

From the ‘Stop/End’ of the Granny section you can make your way back to the Three Sisters Jeep Track by crossing the fence and taking the sneaky short cut.
