WHAT: Enduro Primeval, 06/28/2014
WHO: Advanced Mountain Bikers
WHEN: Sat, Jun 28
WHERE: All over the mountain
GENERAL EVENT INFO:
Enduro races are all the rage these days. Instead of racing on super specific bikes (XC, DH, Freeride, Cross, slopestyle…) this type of event captures the core of what mountain biking is all about – you riding your bike over a huge variety of terrain on trails that are highlighted by incredible riding experiences. No wonder why this has been the biggest movement in bike racing in many years.
Enduro Races consist of multiple stages – Untimed climbing stages and timed descending stages.
Untimed climbing sections require pedaling or riding a chairlift to the next stage. These stages must be completed within a set amount of time to avoid disqualification. The racer with the lowest overall combined times on the descending stages will win the event.
Some trail closures may exist for public use, most notably Kashmir until Noon.

Protection - Full-face helmets are recommended but not required for this race. You must have a helmet on at all times, not propped back on your head. Knee pads and full-finger gloves are strongly recommended.
Equipment use – You may only use one set of equipment for this race (except replacement tubes). Anyone using more than one frame, wheels, or fork/shocks will be DQ’d.
Receiving Assistance – At no time may a racer receive any outside help. This includes a pump, trail tool, water, snack…anything. The idea is to be self sufficient.
Public – Some later stages of the race may have some public conflict, in particular near the trailhead, intersections and lift plaza. At no time does competing in this event allow anyone to not respect normal trail etiquette. Any specific complaint from public will result in a DQ.
Passing – Racers will start on a 1-3 minute interval on the timed descending stages. Most passing will likely occur during climbs. Please respect those who may be going faster.
Liaison stages / transitions – Once riders have finished their climbs, there is no hurry to begin the next stage unless a rider is up against the time minimum for that climb. Once a rider is ready, the rider must wait for the course marshall to give clearance to start.
Course Marking and other info - intersections will be marked with race tape and transition areas will be staffed but course navigation is up to you.
Hammer HEED and Water - Water will be available at the Start, Summit, and Finish and at the top of Stage 5 / Overflow.
