2018 RULE BOOK


RACE FORMAT:

Enduro mountain bike racing is designed to be the definitive test for the mountain biker, with the focus of each event on creating a great atmosphere, community and adventure for the competitor. The GoPro Mountain Games is excited to continue our expansion into Eagle, Colorado for the second annual GoPro MTN Enduro, and encourage all riders and their families to enjoy all other GoPro Mountain Games events and activities in Vail.

The GoPro MTN Enduro will consist of multiple stages over the course of the day on Friday, June 8th. Riders will start at Eagle Town Park, transfer directly from one stage to the next and then finish back at the Town Park. 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.

SCHEDULE & LOCATION:

Riders will start at the Eagle Pool & Ice RInk the morning of Friday, June 8th, transfer directly from one stage to the next and then finish back at the Pool & Ice Rink for post-race festivities, bike maintenance and official awards.
