Wiggle Enduro 6
Yeah – I'm doing it as a pair with a mate.
I'll be on a 2010 Stumpy Elite (silver) and mate will probably be on his Whyte E-120.
The course (if it's the same as last year) is pretty nice.
There's a couple of short, steep climbs (that had a few people walking last yr) as well as some more drawn out ones but no major climbs in terms of distance. It's just the fact that there's quite a few of them in a lap that knackered me last yr (I did it solo last yr).
Some nice singletrack to contend with.
The run at the start is 'interesting' and quite amusing watching all the people in spds running with gloves & helmets on.
The pit areas if they are the same as last year are quite small.Posted 7 years agogeeMember
It's a good race. The key is to put everything you could possibly need in your pit area before the race – including a chair and a little fishing tent for shelter from the rain/hail/lightening/sun.
The rules are pretty strict on spares etc – it has to be in your pit before the start. You also have to pull into the pits to get a bottle or food.
As for the course – if it's dry it is relentlessly fast. No let up at all. If it's wet (which in the 6 years I've done the race it has never been…) the course is dreadful and needs 1.5" mud tyres. Fingers crossed…
In pairs, 6hrs isn't that long – so go flat out from the start. One lap is essentially a sprint. It might be worth doing 2 laps on the spin if it's dry and the laps are about 30mins as this will save you one min per lap on changeover.Posted 7 years ago
