Race Rules: 

Enduro mountain bike racing is designed to be the definitive test for the mountain biker. The focus of each event is on creating a great atmosphere, community, competition and adventure for the competitor. It’s a format that allows riders to compete against each other on individual Timed Stages that are designed to challenge the rider’s technical and physical abilities.

Timed Stages will be mostly downhill and will test the rider’s technical skills. Enduro courses will use the best trails and terrain available. Fun will be the focus for the courses. Timed stages may include short periods of climbing and pedaling.  An all-mountain/enduro bike is recommended but not required.

The untimed transfers will make require racers to pedal, walk or use the lift (when indicated). The lift may ONLY be used before designated timed stages.  Racers will be disqualified for using the lift on race day other than when indicated as part of the race.

Total time from all the timed sections will be added together to determine the winners based on total race time (fastest wins). Ties will be broken by the racer’s times on the last timed stage.

There will be category start times for the start of Stage 1 only. Racers that miss their category start times will be allowed to start only at the discretion of the starter. Racers may not start ahead of their category’s assigned start time.  At all other timed stages racers may start at their leisure provided all timed stages are completed in the proper race order. Once a racer starts a timed stage he may not restart that same Stage for any reason. No pre-riding of Timed Stages is allowed once the race starts.

All stages and transfers must be done in the proper order.

Racers must complete each stage ahead of our official course sweeper.  Stages will be closed after the course sweeper completes them.  Riders arriving after the stage has closed will not be allowed to start and must return to the finish area. This will ensure the event finishes at a reasonable hour.

ALL RACERS MUST ATTEND THE MANDATORY RACERS MEETING ON RACE MORNING.

Course cutting by leaving the obvious intended trail will result in disqualification.

Racers MUST hand in their chips within 15 minutes after finishing the last stage
or they will be penalized 1 minute, after 30 minutes racers will be DQ’d from the event if they have not returned their chip and a $25 fee will be assessed. 


Racers MUST be present at the Race Award Ceremony to Receive Awards and/or Cash Payouts!

Racers are responsible for clearing and timing in and out of every start/finish including the timed climb. 

Racers being passed should yield when it is be safe to do so.

Full-face helmets, knee and elbow pads are recommended but not required.

Helmets must be worn at all times on venues property while riding on your bicycle. Helmets may only be removed when walking or taking the lift. 

Only one bike may be used throughout the race.  Bike swapping for any reason will result in a disqualification. 

Support is only allowed in the base area and at the top of the Cabriolet. Otherwise all tools, parts, hydration, snacks etc must be carried by the individual racer.  Racers must carry everything that they’ll need including water, tools and tubes. Stashing anything along the course is not permitted.

If a racer must return to the pit/parking lot area during the course of the event that racer must return to the race in the same place using the indicated transfer method for that segment.

Any age may race in the Pro Open Class.


Any age may race in a younger class except for U19 racers.


Women can race in women’s classes or age groups.

Any actions by a racer that results in an unfair advantage will not be allowed and will result in a warning, a time penality or disqualification as determined by the race officials.

Rules infractions will be met with a warning, a time penalty or disqualification as determined by the head official.

Officials’ rulings can be protested only within the 15 minute post-race protest period before official results are posted and awards begin. Race officials will make final all protested decisions immediately. Stage Re-runs will only be given at the discretion of the race official.  No Whining!  The race official’s rulings are the final word.
