QECP 2024 Riders Briefing
Orbea Southern Enduro Series Rd1 – 7th April 2024 – Headdown woodland, Buriton, Petersfield GU31 5SN

This is your online riders briefing

  • The area where the race village is situated has patchy phone reception, please bring cash for the food, coffee, merchandise etc…
  • Its important that you start from the race village and be set off at your start time by the race village start marshal, not at your cars or the top of the hill this is extremely important so we know who is on the course. If this keeps happening we will have to start adding time penalties.

Some Race rules reminders:

No re-runs for mechanicals or crashes.

No derestricted E-bikes

No assisting other riders to the top of the hills with E-bikes

All riders must start in their categories and at the race village not their cars or the top of the hill.

E-bikes will do an extra stage at this round. They will do stage 5 twice this will be their 6th stage and count towards the overall time. They will ride the stage at the end after they have done the complete loop of the 5 stages.

There will be a one-way system for sign on with a verbal sign on process.
Give your name & category and you will be handed your number board. If you can remember you number in the start list this will speed up sign-on.
Next the one-way system will direct you to the timing chip trailer. Say your race number and you will be handed your timing chip.
That is sign on complete.

Photographers will need to go to sign on to give their name and number so we know you are on site.

There is no access to the site before the 7th April. Parking is in the woodland and there is no camping available.
