The Enduro itself is a World Championship style event that duplicates the rules and guidelines of the Canadian Enduro Championship. With four laps around the course and three special tests per lap all timed to the second by transponder, young riders get to experience competition in a safe and controlled environment. Riding against the clock versus bar to bar racing is less intimidating for young riders but every bit as rewarding.
The course is set up without compromise and with young riders being the only focus. Obstacles are specifically designed for small wheels and the kids are the center of attention all day. The special tests and the trail loop are challenging yet attainable for the beginner on a 50cc automatic as well as the seasoned racer on a 85cc two stroke. Riders are divided into three ability classes and all finishers are rewarded with a medal.
The $25 entry includes a great day of riding as well as a BBQ lunch for all attendees. The awards ceremony is the climax of the day when all riders get their time on the podium. Entry includes the loan of a transponder for the day and accurate and immediate scoring. Results are posted on the World Enduro Canada website that same day for everyone to review in detail when they get home.
The course for this weekend’s event in Guelph is ready to go and is in a beautiful setting. A quick walk around the Extreme Test this past weekend confirmed this will be a course entertaining for all skill levels.
This year, all 50cc riders get their name entered into the draw for a Marin mountain bike courtesy of Royal Distributing. This draw will be held after the last round of the series.
