MAXXIS ESC Enduro Championship Guidelines
Enduro mountain bike racing is designed to be the definitive test for the mountain biker. The focus of each event is on creating a great atmosphere, community, competition and adventure for the competitor. It’s a format that allows riders to compete against each other on individual Timed Stages that are designed to challenge the rider’s technical and physical abilities.

Timed Stages will be mostly downhill and will test the rider’s technical skills. Enduro courses will use the best trails and terrain available. Fun will be the focus for the courses. It is possible that some climbs will be within Timed Stages.

For the untimed transfers or uphill sections racers will pedal or use lifts. Lifts may ONLY be used before designated timed stages. Each event will have unique rules regarding lift use. Racers will be disqualified for using a lift other than before designated timed stages.

Total time from all the timed sections added together will determine finishing order. Ties will be broken by the last timed stage.

There will be category start times for the start of Section 1. Racers that miss their category start times will be allowed to start at the discretion of the starter. Racers may not start ahead of their category’s assigned start time. At all other timed sections racers may start at their leisure provided all Timed Stages are completed in the proper order.

Once a racer starts a Timed Stage he may not restart that same Stage for any reason. No pre-riding of Timed Stages is allowed once the race starts. All stages and transfers must be done in the proper order. Racers will be notified at registration or at the riders meeting when each Timed Stage will close. Riders arriving after the stage has closed will not be allowed to start and must return to the finish area. This will ensure the event finishes at a reasonable hour.

ALL RACERS MUST ATTEND THE MANDATORY RACERS MEETING ON RACE MORNING

Course cutting by leaving the obvious trail will result in disqualification.

Racers MUST hand in their chips within 15 minutes after finishing the last stage
or they will be penalized 1 minute, after 30 minutes racers will be DQ’d from the event
Racers MUST be present at the Race Award Ceremony to Receive Awards and/or Cash Payouts!

Racers are responsible for clearing and timing in and out of every start/finish including the timed climb

Racers being passed should yield when it is be safe to do so

Approved Bicycle helmets must be worn properly at all times on venues property while riding a bicycle.

Only one bike may be used per event.

Support is only allowed in the pit/parking lot area. Otherwise all tools, parts, hydration, snacks etc must be carried by the individual racer.

Racers must carry everything that they’ll need including water, tools and tubes. Water stations may or may not be available on course.

Stashing anything on course is not permitted

If a racer must return to the pit/parking lot area during the course of the event that racer must return to the race in the same place using the transfer method for that segment

Any age may race in the Pro Open Class
Any age may race in a younger class except for 19-29 racers
Women can race in women’s classes or age groups

There will be 2-3 officials at each event

Any actions by a racer that results in an unfair advantage will not be allowed and will result in a warning, a time penalty or disqualification as determined by the head official.

Rules infractions will be met with a warning, a time penalty or disqualification as determined by the head official

Officials’ rulings can be protested in writing, accompanied with $50 cash and submitted before official results are posted. The head official will make final all protested decisions immediately.
