INTRO - (EN)DURO
See what we did there?
We introduced the Intro - (en)duro format to our portfolio in 2019.
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.
The number of participants in every event will be fixed in advance and will be communicated via this website.

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
