Yep, it’s my first enduro so really looking forward to it!!
I’ll be the one with a yellowy greeny black Giant Reign, wearing a stupidly bright green Bell Super Helmet and displaying all the signs of “All the gear and no idea” – but I know that I’ll be loving every minute 😆
Oh and it’s Veteran’s class all the way for me!Posted 3 years ago
I’ll be there 🙂
I think the TT route will possibly be a segment (Transmission, accelerator and nitrous) but not sure other than that.
Was there last weekend and pike’s teeth was closed off, but the end section of it looks pretty good, so maybe they will have that finished off and open in time for it?Posted 3 years ago
there last weekend rumours are the transmission/accelerator/nitrous route like the tt for one section, and the 4x to old nps (by the grove car park) plus another which i’ve got a feeling could be beehive as its quite dry over that side at the moment. had a look at the new pikes teeth – unfortunately its is going to go down as classic example of how to take a perfectly good (in fact great) section of trail and apply the big standard mundane trailcentre gravel coaster imo, would have been much better spending the money extending the existing trails. sad timesPosted 3 years ago

Tracks open as normal this weekend, the track off the 4x and the last part of the NPS will be out of bounds due to NDH Enduro
karl1824 – lukcily the old roots are still there in places, hopefully an ‘alternative’ ie: old pikes teeth line will develop alongside the new stuff! 🙂Posted 3 years agoStrangaMember
Timing fail on Stage 1 had the results all over the place, so only times from 2 and 3 counted.
Couldnt believe the amount of riders walking down some of the more natural stuff……they are in for a big shock if they have entered Alwinton/Kidland round.
Good days riding/racing though.Posted 3 years ago
royal pain about the timings as my stages 1 and 2 were fine, got caught up in traffic on stage 3 (overtook 3 riders in front of me) and crashed into a tree trying to overtake one of them on the steep stuff 😳 need to brush up on my overtaking/shouting skillz! great day riding 😀Posted 3 years ago
Was good fun, my first enduro and I was a bit out of my depth on the DH runs in the slop, not used to pushing on when its like that after only one practice run.
Came off a few times but I wasn’t the only one! I think some of the first stage times were messed up, so it will just count stages 2 and 3 for the final results.Posted 3 years ago
Yay, 28th out of 38 in Vets – I’m not embarrassed with that for my first attempt at Enduro.
1. Anyone know who was taking the photos, I’d quite like a pic of me mincing along in full Enduro gear 🙂Posted 3 years ago
2. We’re there really 80 odd DNFs, DNSs or no shows? I thought that there were 250 odd entrants, I was No. 243! I wonder how many people signed-on?
Some photo’s are now up on rootsandrain, from the first part of stage 1 (section 13). None of me bimbling though 🙁
There were 210 people altogether, 169 that finished so guessing the rest were DNF’s or decided to give it a miss after a practice.
43rd out of 55 in the senior’s which I don’t suppose was too bad for my first enduro, Gisburn is next in a few weeks, can’t wait! 🙂Posted 3 years ago
