Southern Enduro Rules
The event will be organized by Southen Enduro
There are 4+ timed stages which will be added together for an aggregate time which will decide the winner in each category. There will be a practice session on the morning of the race.
All stages will be taped where race organizers deem appropriate. Taping will leave suitable line choice where available but will not allow for any significant ‘cutting’ of the race track. Any competitor seen to be crossing stage tape, marker posts or taking any route deemed to be off the official race track, maybe disqualified or receive a time penalty.
There must be no interference with the track such as removing rocks, roots or branches. Any competitor deemed to be interfering with the track may be disqualified.
All stages will be approximately 1 mile long and around 80-100m elevation drop. Estimated stage times are 2 to 3 minutes.
If riders don’t make their start times they will be slotted in 15seconds after the next rider or when ready to start the stage. There is no penalty for being late.
Riders must start at the race village at their start times.
There are no re-runs for crashed or machanicals.
Practice is unlimited between the scheduled practice window.
No shutting is allowed in practice.
If riding in the analogy categories you are NOT allowed to use a Ebike to practice on.
Stages must be contested on the same bike. Any rider not complying with this may be disqualified.
Bar-end plugs or equivalent must be fitted. Any rider not complying with this may be disqualified.
The Gravity Enduro can be done on any bike as long as the bike is of a sound mechanical state and has no electronically or mechanically assisted motors. Any rider not complying with this may be disqualified.

Safety & Conduct:
All competitors must behave in a high-quality sporting fashion. Observe all rules and instructions provided by organizers, timing staff and marshals.
Should you be caught by another rider in a stage the rider must inform you which side he/she intends to pass. Always pass on the safest side.
All instructions given by race officials must be observed. This event should be fun so no foul or abusive language by anyone.
All competitors must sign on and pick up their number board before riding the course.
Do not tamper, modify or deface number boards in any way. Failure to comply with this may result in disqualification.
Helmets are compulsory, and must be done up properly at all times (including transition stage) failure to do so may result in disqualification.
Both full face or open face is OK. Helmets must carry a Snell, Kitemark or EN 1078. Gloves and eye protection is highly recommended. Knee pads and body amour are up to the rider, but if you’re not sure we recommended you ride in whatever you feel safest in.
Transition Stage / Link section:
The organizers will mark out one transition stage between race stages and a set time to reach the next stage. Transition time is based on using a full link, riders are requested to use the transition stage (no short cuts). If riders don’t use the official transition stage they may be disqualified or receive a time penalty. It is important to use the transition stage as we can trace riders in case of emergency or injury. Rider must not be assisted by other riders.
Helmets must be worn on the transition stage.
