SPECIAL BURKE MOUNTAIN RULES
We hate rules as much as you do but to be able to have an event at Burke Mountain we must enforce the following event specific rules or the offending racer will be disqualified:
Motorex E Bike Class – will not compete at this event.
Ebikes are not allowed at any time and may lead to disqualification if ridden.
NO SHUTTLING – That goes for everyone from Friday to the events end on Sunday. If you are seen/reported/caught/whatever shuttling, you will be assessed a time penalty or disqualified. Trust us, you will not be on the podium if you try, so don’t.
Racers must be present when their class is called up to activate their chips. Do not start the race without doing so or you will not get your racing times and be DQ’d.
We will NOT have printed maps for this event as the course is easy to follow, so if you want one please print it. Please review the 2023 MAXXIS ESC Enduro rules on our website, there have been some changes, so it would be best to read everything.
The venue waiver form must be filled out even if you preregistered. Print them out, fill them in and save time. You will not have to fill out an ESC entry or waiver form this year if you pre-registered.
$100 TIMING CHIPS – We will be using our SIAC Fly By timing system for this event. Please note if you do not return the SIAC Timing Chip you will owe us $100. Yes they cost that much. Other enduro series require the racers to use their own or rent them plus a deposit. We trust our racers until proven otherwise so please make sure to return the chip if you decide to leave early.
Please Note: GPS units/watches on wrists, bars or stem may interfere with the SIAC Timing Chip so it’s best not to use one
Racers must be present at the racers meeting where we will activate their chips.
Please drive slowly through neighborhood while visiting East Burke, we do not want to upset the neighbors, and please visit the local restaurants and let them know you are there because of the enduro race.
