Rider Categories

We want to make this race as fun as possible, so we’ve identified what we think is a good representation of our athlete pool and created rider categories:

Categories Descriptions

  • Pro/Open: This category is for pro riders and very experienced enduro racers. Riders will be eligible for cash awards but no in-kind product.
  • Vet Expert: This category is for 35+ years old, highly competitive, but not professional level riders. Riders will be awarded in-kind product prizes.
  • Expert: This category is for highly competitive, but not professional level riders. Riders will be awarded in-kind product prizes.
  • Amateur: This category is for experienced mountain bikers with limited to no enduro racing experience. Riders will be awarded in-kind product prizes.

Policies

  • It is the rider’s responsibility to accurately asses which category they should select while registering. Riders can not change their race category after registration.
  • If a racer notices their category designation is incorrect at race packet pick-up. It is the rider’s responsibility to notify the registration manager immediately before the race begins to correct the situation.
  • Pro and experienced riders are discouraged from registering as Amateurs in order to provide a fair and enjoyable playing field for all athletes.
