Adaptive Bikes

Adaptive racers may be accompanied by up to two riding friends for free. All they need to do is inform registration so we can track who is on course. Any questions or feedback, please get in touch.

Race Format

Both Saturday and Sunday enduro races will follow the enduro format. Racers will set off from the main arena at their pre-allocated start time. Racers will sign for number board and a timing chip fifteen minutes before their start time. At the allocated start time, racers proceed to follow the course completing all stages in order. Upon return, timing chip is handed in to record overall finish time for bragging rights with your mates!

For the hill climb, you will set off at the time you selected when registering. At the start line you will line up 10 minutes before to be checked off by a marshal. Next you'll wait for the timing beeps counting you in........and go. Once you cross the finish line you ride back to the arena to hand in your timing chip.
