2016 Triple Crown Enduro Series Racing Guidelines
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 some significant climbing.

For the un-timed transfer or uphill sections racers will pedal or use lifts. Lifts may ONLY be used for transfer when designated for that transfer stage. Each event will have unique rules regarding lift use. Racers will be disqualified for using a lift other than for a designated transfer stage.

Total time from all the timed sections added together will determine finishing order. Ties will be broken by the last timed stage. If still tied it will be broken by the next to last stage, and so until a winner is determined.

Course cutting by leaving the marked or obvious race trail will result in disqualification.

There will be category start times for the start of Section 1. Racers that miss their category start times will be allowed to start at the discretion of the starter. Racers may not start ahead of their category’s assigned start time. After the start of stage 1 racers may start at their leisure provided all Timed Stages are completed in the proper 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 has begun.

Racers will be notified at registration or at the riders meeting when each Timed Stage will close. Riders arriving after the stage has closed will not be allowed to start next stage and must return to the finish area. This will ensure the event finishes at a reasonable hour for all. Closing times will be generous enough to accommodate slower racers.

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

Helmets must be worn at all times on venues property while riding a bicycle
Only one bike may be used per event
Any age may race in the Pro open Class,
Racer’s age for amateur categories will be determined by their age on December 31, 2015
Women under the age of 19 may chose to race in the Amateur Women Category or their corresponding Amateur Men’s category
