The enduro race style is one that combines endurance and technical skill. It is run in a stage race format that breaks down as follows. There will be climbing stages known as “transfer stages” to get the racers to the top of the mountain and timed descents known as “special stages”. Contestants must complete all stages under their own power. Only the special stages (descents) are timed for the results.  The winner in each category is based on fastest total time in the special stages.  There will be seventeen racer categories in total; between four skill classes beginner, sport, expert and professional (Open) riders.
