Enduro comes to Gloucestershire.
The guys at Mean and Dirty Events in Gloucestershire have been had at work in the woods of Ebworth Park, a private National Trust venue, between Gloucester and Stroud. They have been preparing trails for a 3 round enduro series called the MaD Enduro.
The venue is situated in a valley and has loads of room for fresh stages for each of the 3 rounds. Events days are well catered for with plenty of parking, an event arena plus fresh food and refreshments.
The format is pretty similar to most enduro’s now with riders setting off in small groups, making there way to each stage, where they can take their run as they get there. The transitions are a mix of gradual firewood all be it very rough fire road, plus single track. The whole event is contained i the park so there’s no long transitions, but you will still need to carry everything you need as per Enduro rules. No outside support.
The MaD Enduro series prize fund is being supported by ONEAL, Dartmoor Bikes and local shop, Slam69
All rounds have full medical backup and radio linked marshals in 4x4 vehicles.
The Dates are:
Rd1 – 17th April
Rd2 – 21st August
Rd3 – 9th October
All of the rounds will take place on a Sunday and will be run blind, so no practice. Each round will be listed to 200 riders.
There are plans to make the last round in October a bit special and there will be a overall series prize.
The entry has been kept to a minimum at just £30 for pre-entry.
