Here it comes, round 2 of our 2022 GAP MTB Kids Enduro Series for ages 8-16. This is a fun, non-competitive event and is the perfect opportunity for those interested in enduro to gain some race experience in a relaxed atmosphere.
Entry will include a coaching session and a mix of timed enduro stages, just like a real race! We always strive to make this a fun learning event which will cater for all rider abilities, and we want to keep things progressing for those who have participated previously by elevating the experience with the introduction of some more technical trails.
Riders can select one of the following categories to ensure they get an experience that is perfectly tailored for their skill level while getting the most out of their coaching and enduro experience:
Suitable for those too young or inexperienced to race or riders just starting out. Perfect for kids who want to experience the thrill of enduro racing and receive top-class coaching to refine those fundamental biking skills on blue trails only
Intermediate riders who want to progress from the last event can move onto this grade which will incorporate blue and red trails and work on more advanced riding techniques in their coaching session. There will be an additional new ‘bonus track’ for this group
Incorporating more technical trails to progress riders from the last event and prepare them for racing. Coaching sessions will be geared towards more advanced riders and techniques. There will also be a new ‘bonus track’ to compliment the enduro stages.
