03: L&D: SRAM : Enduro Info :: Sun 10/9/2017

Please remember: that to enjoy the double deal AND/OR online entry rates you must also pay online (or we receive payment) BEFORE the online entry cutoff date (Thursday 7/9/2017 @ 6pm). We prefer direct deposit, easy for you & easy for us!

If entry money received after this date/time you can pay on the day but it will be the ‘On the Day Entry ‘ rate, and no ‘Double Deal’ discount can apply. That would be a ‘sad-face’ moment for you… we don’t want that.

SRAM Enduro Race:
SRAM have generously provided a SRAM Eagle GX Group Set (valued at $900) as a major giveaway/spotprize for the Enduro Race. This will be drawn at the prizegiving… nice work SRAM!

A riding helmet must be worn at all times, full-face helmets are optional (and highly recommended) You really ought to wear a full face. The terrain is very gnarly and will hurt you if you bin it.

New trail short, sweet n rocky. Approx 2 minutes of rocky wonderland! then short steep liaison to…
Stage 2 (Dr. Strangeloves)
A longer stage (6+ minutes) so be careful out there this stage has a lot of exposure, is very narrow at the top and the lower section is like a dry riverbed/waterfall so things come at you pretty fast, much funner. This classic finishes bottom of Graveyard Gulch. Next liaison head up the Shit track to double gates (Water available here) as marked…

Short 3+ minutes… On the Rocks see you drop down a short technical gully stage finishing back down in the Shit track, liase back up to double gates (Water available here) as marked heading to…
Stage 4 (Supercharger)
Mid length 3-4 minutes… On Carters Face, (near previously used TT Trail) starts fast across paddock then tightens into rocky declines of a single track nature, more rock… down to the Old Willow, finish here. Head to the cattle stop on Little Valley Road for a feed station and fuel up there for…
Stage 5 (Panhead)
Longer 5+ minutes… Liaison up willow track to start of this new trail.
