INTRO - (EN)DURO

See what we did there?

We introduced the Intro - (en)duro format to our portfolio in 2019.
The race style  follows the “Mash Up” format and judging by riders feedback and reaction to the race in 2019.  We feel certain you will love it again in 2020.

We believe that we have now reached that stage where the popularity of the Scottish Enduro Series is almost becoming a barrier to those who wish to stick their toe into the the enduro pool and give it a go.

One of the most frequent questions we get is;   Do you think I am ready? I have...........
We want everyone to have a go, you will love it. This is a terrific format, come along, join in and enjoy there really is no pressure.

Thats is why we believe that this  race format is perfect,  practice, throw down a race run, if you have the dreaded mechanical or you think you could have gone faster, no problem, go and throw down another race run, it is your fastest run that will count  towards your results at the end of the day.

It is a one day format and we will allocate you five hours to ride the stages as many times as you need to nail that crucial  race run. The beutiful thing is that each of the stages will end near the Pinemartin Cafe where you can refresh , relax  and fuel up for the next run.

NEW for 2020 is the EBike category; racing the same three stages plus one stage that will be predominatley climbing.
The event will be  taped and marked like all enduro events, with sportident dibber timing, marshals and muddy  medics onsite throughout  race day.

Info

Here are some important details of how it is going to work.

1 There will be three Stages (not to gnarly)  four if you are on an (E bike) using the fantastic selection of trails at NevisRange

2 Riders will be set of in four waves. 1000, 1015, 1030 and 1100.

3 Riders have 20 time stamps and each stage equals two stamps,  riders must complete all three (four if on an ebike) stages once, if riders chose to do multiple  runs on a stage then the riders  fastest time on the stage is the one that counts. Please note that riders can practice each stage without using a time stamp. Please be aware  other riders on the stage may be on timed runs.

4 Riders must return their timing chip within  5 hours of their start wave.

We think that this format is going to be pretty exciting, for those who have never ridden enduro before this is an ideal Intro(en)duro (see what I did there).

Please note we will be marking stages on Saturday, whilst we actively discourage practicing we realise we cannot stop you riding the trails. we therefore request that you have a heightened awareness of others who may be working on the trails on Saturday.

Rules

Rules

1. Mandatory pre-event meeting at 0945 on Sunday for all,  all riders and crew are encouraged to attend.

2. Each  solo rider will bear reasonability for their timing chip (dibber). In order for stages to count riders must pass through the start and finish gates. Riders are responsible for their own dibs.

3. Waiting riders should always check in with stage officials prior to starting their stage. Please adhere to the instructions from event staff.

4. Please note  stages are live from 1000, even if you are on a practice run others may be on a race run.

5. Wearing a buckled helmet is mandatory anytime you are on your bike.

6. Ignorance of any rule will not be accepted as an excuse.

7. Foul riding will not be tolerated, unsportsmanlike behaviour is totally unacceptable. This includes the use of profane or abusive language, this rule is taken very seriously by No Fuss and anyone who violates this rule shall be disqualified from this and any future No Fuss events.

8. Shortcutting the course can be grounds for automatic disqualification of any rider or  team. If a rider makes a mistake and they report to officials before it is discovered, a time adjustment will be applied rather than a DQ.

9.  Where practicable riders pushing or walking for whatever reason  should stay on the least rideable portion of the course when being passed. Riders are encouraged to call pleasantly “passing on the right or left” as appropriate.

10. All protests must be made by a team captain to a No Fuss Official ( Frazer, or Spook) Protests can be made throughout the event and up to 15 mins after the final results are posted. It would be appreciated if any protests could be made respectfully to the officials. No Fuss officials say is final in all protests.

11. Safety on the course is our primary concern. If you come across an injured or a potentially unsafe situation, you are encouraged to stop and assist. If you stop to give assistance for a health and safety related reason, you should report your number to a passing number who will turn it in to an  official. You must then complete your lap and report to the transition official and report the nature of the assistance you provided and an approximate duration of your stop. You will be assigned a stage time. NB Time adjustments are made by a No Fuss official and are final. NOTE This rule applies to ONLY health and safety concerns and not mechanical failure.

22. The NO FUSS OFFICIALS ( FRAZER and SPOOK) will be given the final decision regarding any occurrence at the event including those not addressed in the rules

23. ENJOY
