RULE BOOK


RACE FORMAT:

The GoPro MTN Enduro event will consist of multiple stages over the course of the day. Each downhill stage will be run in an individual time trial format. There will be untimed transition stages (transfers) that require pedaling to the next stage. Shuttles are not allowed. A rider’s time on any stage will be chip-timed. Riders will have a window in which to complete all the stages/timed segments. If you miss the time allocated, you will not be eligible for category awards, but you will be listed in the results. The racer with the overall fastest combined timed stages will win the event.

To preserve the course’s trails, we will not have any official practice before the race begins. However, stage maps and course descriptions will be published the day before the race. Cutting of the course or across switchbacks is strictly prohibited, and riders are required to stay on marked trails. Please do not use trails when they are excessively wet or muddy. All competitors must be self-sufficient during the race and should display a high level of sportsmanship.

SCHEDULE & LOCATION:

The GoPro Mountain Games is excited to expand once again. This year we will be utilizing even more of the great single-track trails that Eagle has to offer. Riders will start at the Eagle Town Park, transfer directly from one stage to the next and then finish back at the Town Park for post-race festivities, bike maintenance and official awards.
