Hello,

I'm wondering if someone can answer a few questions about the CA Enduro Series?

1. Is there a course/race description for each race (i.e. what were the transfer and downhill stages like at last year's events)? Do the different classes ride different courses? Do you know this before the race, or not until the day of?

2. How does the timing/start configuration work? Are the courses wide enough to pass, or are you basically stuck behind a slower rider in front of you?

3. What is the pace required on the transfer stages? Are we talking just riding along, or are fairly high efforts required to make the cutoffs?

4. When will registration open for the various events? How quickly do the events sell out?

Thanks a bunch! I've never done an enduro race and was trying to get some information about it?


P.S. 5. Is there a hardtail with flat pedals category!?

Cheers.

I have all the same questions. I'm having a hard time finding the details as well.

They now have registration dates on the CA enduro website, but finding other details is difficult for me.

From what I have found the trail is the same for all classes, you do get the routes ahead of time at some point; people talk about riding the day before to get a feel for them.

Someone recently posted the transfer stages in the CA enduro race they had done were almost inconsequential.

1 - The course details are generally provided the week before the race - and you get to pre-ride the course the day before (I guess you can pre-ride sooner if you have the course details a week earlier)

Each course is different -- some courses, like Santa Cruz, were 30 miles with 5000' of climbing -- other courses, like Mammoth, use lifts with less climbing (maybe 1500'). Similarly, the terrain varies for each location - the resorts have rockier terrain, the coastal locals have tighter faster swoopy trails.

All classes ride the same trails -- there have been extra segments added for Pro/Expert Class at some events.

2 - Riders start with 30sec gaps. Generally Pros start first - followed by experts, sports, and then beginners. Passing is like passing on any trail - you are not racing on a fire road.

3 - Transfer times are generous - I'd say you just pedal up at a casual pace - even take a break if needed.

5 - no hardball class

@smgemelos

Thanks a bunch. This info is quite helpful.

Does the http://californiaenduroseries.com website provide the course info, or is it the individual event sponsors?

Cheers.

Individual race directors post their info -- the CES website has links to each race website.

Thanks smgemelos for the info, wish I'd known the wildwood enduro was going to be 58 miles over two days before I'd signed up.

Oh well, guess I'll jump in to enduro with both feet.
