Round 3 – 13th/14th June – Oreokastro, Thessaloniki
Round 4 – 26th/27th September Pelion, Volos
All races will be the predefined Enduro Format which consist of uphill Liason Stages and downhill Special Stages. Included may be uphill trails no more than 10% in general. Athletes will be timed on all Special Stages, and their timed sections will be added up to compile their total competition time. The stages between the timed descents are called Liason Stages, and because of time gaps, athletes have the ability to move in small groups. Athletes throughout the duration of the race are invited to be autonomous in hydration and nutrition, (except the start of the first special SP1), where HYDRATION and nutrition will be given at the race start. Any assistance given, either by external agents (coaches, etc.) will be possible only in the presence of the Coordinator of the race, either by teammates at any time. Despite reporting regulations governing Enduro Mountain Bike and enforcing the autonomy of athletes, minor adjustments may occur in the benefit of the athletes. The exact design and adjustments will be announced shortly.
This race aimes at experienced cyclists. This race includes all terrain trails and favors dual suspension bikes. To participate, athletes should have a helmet, not necessarily a full face helmet on timed paths, knee pads and gloves. Optionally, shin guards, glasses, armor, backpack , hydration pack, closed helmet, boots, and other protective accessories.
The purpose of this series is to develop the sport of Enduro Mountain bike and highlight paths and riding areas in greater Greece.
