Video: EWS or Bust - Episode 4 - Ard Rock Enduro

Aug 16, 2018
by Remap  


Racing EWS is a costly game and some times that cost is just too much. Deciding to skip rounds 5 and 6 in La Thuile and Whistler and focus on the final two rounds of the year, Payner decides to keep his racing up with something a little closer to home... Enter the Ard Rock Enduro. A race not done before and with around 3000 entries across all the races and categories it was more than a race, it was a bike festival with some super relaxed and fun racing on the side. Check out all the action as we throw a slight curveball in the EWS season yet still packed with long days, epic stages and plenty of ups and downs.

There was certainly no shortage of entrants with entries selling out in no time.

The loop was around 45km in total encompassing 7 race stages.

Geared up and ready to go in the new Remap Bars jersey.

Tilting it into one of the many scree slopes on stage 2.

Eyes on the prize. The Yorkshire Moors provided and incredible backdrop to the race and threw up some stunning trails and challenges.

 3000 entrants? If they start in exactly 30s intervals, that is 25 hours straight of people starting into the stage! How does that work out?! With so many wheels stirring the trail those at the back must be riding entirely different track to those in front. Big Grin

 Yo bud, I know crazy isn’t it ! There were actually just over 3000 entries/results across the different races of the weekend if you check out roots and rain. Good work on the maths though.

 I don't know how it was this year but when I raced in 2016 they basically gave you as much of a gap as you wanted, a lot of people were riding in trains with their mates so no time gaps.

 Is this what English 'Enduro' races look like?
Everywhere else it'd be a cross country race.
