MACAVALANCHE 2020

You have heard about it,  you may have watched the video. You are now moments away from entering the Scottish Enduro event with the crazy mass-start stage down a snow slope start. Macavalanche is an epic stage Enduro race that takes place at the stunning Glencoe Mountain Resort in Scotland. It's renowned for its big scenery, friendly vibe and the oh did we mention the mass start!
#massstartaction

In 2018 and 19 the Goat Stew Orchestra entertained riders as they lined up for the mass start, we hear you loved it so much we have asked them back for 2020!

 After prizegiving, you can share stories of the day, ponder the season ahead, have a few beers  and listen to some great music. Does a BIG MOUNTAIN Enduro day get any better?

Glencoe Mountain Resort is situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty on Rannoch Moor and offers stunning views of the iconic Buachaille Etive Mor. In summer the centre offers fantastic mountain biking trails and home cooked food in the log cabin cafe. In winter it is home to one of the two ski stations in the Outdoor Capital of the UK

Macavalanche is one hell of a race, big mountain stages, topped of with mass start action where fortune favors the brave.

Enduro Mag opened its race report from 2017 with following paragraph:

"If there is ever a race to put on the bucket list, it's the No Fuss Macavalanche. A white-knuckle thrill ride down the open flanks of Glencoe mountain. A fusion of an enduro and DH race with a splash of mass start chaos and Scottish flair added in for good measure, it has become one of our favourite races on the calendar."

The Uplift enduro format has been around in Europe for many years, No Fuss Events introduced this event way back in 2011, 2011 was the only year to date that we used Helicopter uplift to get riders to the top of the mountain. Since then the race has been polished and refined (as much as you can polish and refine what is possibly one of Scotland's harshest environments). In 2018 the race was opened for 300 entries and as in other years it sold out quickly.

The three stage format in 2018 including the mass start stage produced a fastest time of a a fraction over 21mins  of racing for the winner. The uplift facilities provided by Glencoe Mountain Resort to access some of the rawest racing and riding experiences in the UK, with snow, mass start and open mountain this is one hell of a day out.

Enduro Mag in 2016 said, As riders arrived one by one it was clear that all were stoked, more like the finish of the mega or an epic alpine stage, we had never seen such excitement, fist bumps and high fives were everywhere! In a year where enduro has raised its game, the No Fuss team have brought us something uniquely Scottish, and long may it continue.

The race format is quite simple: seeding on of blind stage/s at Glencoe Mountain to determin your start positions for the final stage which runs from high on the mountain side back down to the resort base.

Rules

Read carefully

Each rider (herein after referred to as Rider) taking part in one or more events of the Macavalanch is supposed to know the following rules and makes a commitment to submit her/himself without reserve to all of them. Non-compliance with any of the Race Rules may result in disqualification of the Rider from the event.

General rules

Macavalanche is a mountain bike enduro event that takes place in a rugged mountain enviroment. Riders must complete the timed stages in numerical order

Please note the cumulitaive time of seeding stage/s will be given and your position on the start grid for mass start stage and will be allocated accordingly.

Blind racing

The Macavalanche is raced accordingly to the original Enduro format that means it is not allowed to check the course before the event starts.

Bike and personal equipment

The courses are designed to suit a mid travel trail bike, not specific XC or DH bikes.

Riders should use the same frame, fork and wheels during a whole event. Bikes may be scrutinized at the bottom before departing the course. All bikes must have bar plugs. Bikes must be in perfect working order. The race directors have the right to deny entry to the event if they feel a bike is not of a suitable standard.

Riders must wear a certified full face helmet at all times, including transfer stages. Riders found not wearing a helmet shall be disqualified immediately.

Full-face helmet, knee protections must be worn in all timed stages. Additionally, gloves, elbow pads and back protectors are compulsory in France, they are strongly recommended in the other countries. Riders may choose to ride the transfer stages with a non full-face helmet.

Each Rider should be completely self-sufficient. As a minimum each rider must carry the following items:

  • Mobile phone.
  • Basic first aid kit (Minimum: 1 x Dressing Pad for heavy bleeding (field dressing); bandage, plasters).
  • Emergency Foil Blanket
  • Wind/ Waterproof Top.
  • Bike repair kit (tube, tire leavers, pump or CO2 canisters, Allen keys, chain tool).
  • Whistle can be a good idea in case you go over a bank, break a leg and no one can see you.
  • Sufficient food and water to meet your individual energy needs for 5 hours of riding.
  • Sunscreen.

Route Markings / Hazards

The route may have narrow sections and exposed rocks, steep climbs and descents and is not suitable for beginners. Potholes, rocks, stock, rutted tracks, steep descents, banks etc. are all natural obstacles to be negotiated by the Rider. When you are in this environment YOU are the person primarily responsible for your own safety. Any hazards outside of those expected will be identified and marked accordingly to ensure your safety.

It is the duty of each Rider to assist any other Rider who appears to be injured or in difficulty and alert the race director ASAP.

The course

In the interests of safety there will be a cut off time to complete the whole event, Riders will be notified at race briefing on the morning of the event.

The course will be marked with signs, tape, and some sections double taped, otherwise Riders must follow the trail. If a Rider exits the timed stage course, he/she must re-enter at the same point and, if altered it, restore the tape as he/she found it.

Riders cannot repeat any stage even if they suffer a mechanical failure on course.

There is no pre-race practice.

Riders? should and should not's

Riders must not leave any rubbish along the route. All food wrappers drink bottles, tubes etc. must be carried to the finish line and not discarded anywhere along the route. Anyone seen discarding rubbish will be disqualified and will not receive a time or position as applicable (leave tire marks only).

Riders may not modify race number plates.

Riders must attend the pre-race briefing and carefully read any note supplied by the organization. Riders must obey instructions from Marshals at all times. They are there for everyone?s safety and enjoyment.

Each Rider authorizes the race organization and its partners to use any images or videos taken during the event he/she may be appearing in.

Any Rider withdrawing from the event must notify the race office as soon as possible.

Each Rider has to adapt his/her speed and his/her behaviour to his/her personal abilities, his/her equipment and to the general conditions the event is raced in.

Registration

If you are unable to compete for medical reasons we will refund you on receipt of a doctors note.

It is not possible to transfer entries to any other events, next years event, or a different Rider.

For the registration, the payment will be made by on-line payment and the Rider will have to inform an on-line form concerning his names, first names, age, gender and address.

Responsibilities of Riders

Timing

The timed stages are timed using individual electronic chip. It is the responsibility of each rider to make sure his/her passage has been recorded at the start and finish of each timed stage (sound signal). Each Rider must return the individual electronic chip to the organizer at the end of the race in order to withdraw his/her individual timed results and get his/her deposit back.

Penalties and complaints

No external assistance on the track, assistance is only allowed in the pits area. Assistance outside the pits area will result in time penalty.

When a Rider is caught by another faster Rider, he/she should let the other Rider pass without issue, otherwise he/she'll be issued a 30sec penalty. The faster Rider should give lots of warming and clear directions as to what side he/she will pass and eventually overtake when it is safe to do so for both Riders.

Riders must not deviate from the obvious track or attempt to take shortcuts. Shortcuts mean immediate disqualification.

Any complaints about the race should be done formally to the race office within 15 minutes of end of Riders race.

Any complains about the result should be done formally to the race office within 30 minutes of result's publication.

Any dangerous or disrespectful behaviour against other racers, marshals, nature, trails or spectators will lead to a time penalty depending of the level of the fault. Race director can also decide the disqualification of the Rider.

Podium and prizes

Award Ceremony will be held on race day. Riders who finish in the top three in their category must attend the podium presentation. Riders who fail to make the presentation forfeit their position, and prizes. There will be no difference in values between prizes for men or women for the same level of achievement.

have fun!
