Start/Finish at Ground Zero. Arrive by 8:00 for an informal registration/briefing. Registrations close at 08:15. Ride out at 8:30.
Free entry. Riders are only requested to pay up their Hillbillies MTB Club memberships, for the use of the trails. R200 for an annual membership through www.hillbillies.co.za website, or you can pay R50 for a day pass on the day.
This is not an official event, it is just a bunch of riders comparing times. Health & Safety is the sole responsibility of each rider.
The Full Funduro will consist of 5 stages, each between 1-2km in length. Total distance is ±32km.
LITE category will cover the first 3 stages, which are much less technical (all blue trails). Total distance ±23km.
The full route will be published on Trailforks on Friday, 18th September.
For those who don't know what an enduro is...downhills are timed, and the uphills are mandatory but not timed. Riders are timed in stages that are primarily downhill, with neutral "transfer" stages in between.
It will be Strava timed, unless we find some volunteer timing marshals.
The route will not be formally marked/taped. Riders are advised to practice beforehand and familiarise themselves with the trails.
A-lines will not be taped off. Riders should scout ahead of time, and decide which features to avoid.
After the ride, everyone can go home for a shower. Return at about 16:00 to compare times and have a good time.
