Aberdeenshire Enduro Series 2019

The first ever Aberdeenshire Enduro series will take place in 2019 and consist of 3 events. This form of competitive mountain biking has become very popular in recent years. Riders are timed in stages that are primarily downhill, with neutral transfer stages in between. Our event routes are typical 25-30km long with 4-5 timed single track stages, which are aimed to be rideable by reasonably competent mountain bikers. 

Our one day events have great friendly, atmosphere and attract all levels of rider, from the seriously competitive to those just looking for a great day in the hills. We have a range of rider categories, with great prizes on offer from our fantastic local sponsors. We also have so great caterers attending the event so make sure to bring some change! 

Race Categories

This year we have 5 main categories with prizes provide by our fantastic sponsors:

  • Mixed Youths 9-15    Cycle Highlands
  • Junior Men 13-17      CRC
  • Men 18-39                    20 Twenty Bike Clinic
  • Senior Men 40+          Bennachie Bike Bothy
  • Women                         Bike Remedy

Age and Number Limit

Entrants need to be an minimum of 9 years old. Anyone aged 13 or over on the date of the event will be able to take part in the full course of 5 stages. Anyone aged between 9-12 will be able to take part in a shortened course, which will be 4 stages omitting the most technically difficult stage. Youth riders under the age of 13 will be required to ride together in a group, guided by our experienced adult Youth Group Leader, before racing each stage individually (see more below).  

We are have a rider limit of 250 participants so sign up soon to not miss out!

Youths

  • Each youth rider must have an adult chaperone (and be accompanied to the event by a parent/guardian, even if the latter is not riding).
  • The Rider Disclaimer must be signed by both the parent/guardian on behalf of the youth, as well as the chaperone.
  • The chaperone can only look after a maximum of two youth riders.
  • The chaperone will ride behind the youth participant and be available to take care of any issues with the youth eg bike problems, injuries or withdrawals for any reason.
  • The entire group (youth riders plus chaperone) will set off one hour before the main group and will ride a shorten course.
  • The group must ride each stage together (with usual separation between riders), once all have arrived a stage with any other riders waiting will have to give way to let youth group through and wait until they have all completed a stage.
