A Gravity Enduro course is comprised of timed descending stages (marked in red) and untimed liaison stages (marked in yellow).
Riders complete the course once.
Prior to the race commencing, riders must collect their timing chip and we must hold a rider briefing. For simplicity we always start and finish the race in the same place.
We recommend starting the race at 9am Once the sweep completes each stage, that section of trail can be re-.opened. The schedule for this will be somewhat dictated by the number entries.
For example, if there are 100 entries the schedule will look something like this:
Stage 1 finished by 10.30
Stage 2 finished by 11.00
Stage 3 finished by 11.30
Stage 4 finished by 12.00
Stage 5 finished by 12.30
Riders must leave a minimum of 30 second gap between the rider in front on timed stages.
