Hope PMBA Enduro Series 2020

The 6 rounds of the Hope PMBA series and the Hopetech Women's events each have an unique feel, each with their own character but are all fun. We hope you enjoy the variety but if some aren't for you just do the ones that appeal. More detailed info is available at www.pmbaenduro.co.uk

ENSURE YOUR MATES ARE INCLUDED IN THE SERIES POINTS LEAGUE
If you are entering anyone else in this event ask them for their SiEntries ID (not the same as their SI-Card number). If they have not registered, please ask them to do so by visiting www.sientries.co.uk. Once you have their SiEntries ID, surname and postcode, you will be able to enter them without needing to type in any of their personal details. This will mean that their results at events in this series can be linked together and they can receive an overall series placing.

Remember: Points will only be added to riders registered on SiEntries – mates don’t let mates miss out on points!

 

29th March - Round 1 - Gisburn - £49.90
As is tradition the series opens at Gisburn forest, starting as close to Easter we can. A great enduro to ease you into the series. Popular with novice racers to experience the enduro format. Expect trail centre stages along with a selection of off piste sections. 1 day event, with a free kids single stage mashup on the Saturday. Last year this event sold out in just 50 minutes, so if you want in you’ll need to be ready 9am sharp to get in!

2/3rd May - Round 2 - Graythwaite - £75
Round 2 has traditionally been the big one, our “Epic” at Graythwaite. Held over 2 days on a  private estate with 100% off piste. Its been our favourite venue, with a great rare arena and epic Lakeland views, in fact his round has some of the very best views of the whole series, even some of the best views available in the lake district. Camping included within the picturesque grounds of Graythwaite Estate and the Manor house .Expect  a spectacular finish arena, with camping, catering, showers, water & marquee with a bottle bar thanks to Kirkby Lonsdale Brewery. We also hope the round to be named an EWS Qualifier when those are announced in January, our application is in.

20/21st June - Round 3 - Lee Quarry and Havok £70
Lee Quarry and Havok Bike Park is always a popular & unique round, drawing racers from all over the country. Returning as round 3 of the series on midsummer’s weekend, the big loop includes a moorland transfer taking us over to the ever-popular stages we have at Havok Bike Park. Popular with DHers crossing over to Enduro with the stages at Havok and overall one of our most airborne enduro’s for those that want air, while still being popular with XC crossover racers due to the natural singletrack loop and fully rollable timed sections. We are working hard to introduce a new stage to this loop.. As well as investigating a new stage, we’re also hoping to have a new HQ field and a larger camp field to enable this event to step up to Epic level.

8/9th August - Round 4 - Llangollen (& BNES round also) £75 
Round 4 is time for One Giant Leap Llangollen, praised as one the leading DH venues in the country, and we’ll again be turning it into a Enduro venue for the weekend. We’ve already started on some new built sections enabling is to run 5 stages and have this round also host BEMBA as a round of the BNES Series. Awesome steep and fast DH trails as well as great camping field, it should be stunning weather to match the stunning scenery. We also expect the round to be named an EWS Qualifier when those are announced in January

Our round 4 is also a round of  BNES (BEMBA National Enduro Series), and the full calendar for this series should be announced soon. However expect events to be the absolute best available in the UK calendar.

6th September - Round 5 - Kirroughtree £49.90
From Wales to Scotland for round 5 at Kirroughtree, this is our “family round” with great camping facilities, permanent showers and toilets and a course that’s just pure fun. What the venues lacks in elevation it makes up for in loam & bedrock. A grass roots round that the fastest also enjoy, it has everything an enduro should have and has become an unmissable round of the PMBA Enduro series with many calling it their favourite the fun level is that high. Often racers will bring the whole family, so in 2019 we ran a free kids race and had 33 kids aged 2 upwards racing on the Saturday. The free kids race will return in 2020. The idyllic camping area and permanent brick shower/toilet block gives a holiday vibe; enhanced by the smells from many BBQ’s in the evening. Late in the year, September is not overly problematic with the midges either – but still come prepared!

4th October - Round 6 - Grizedale £55
Round 6 and we return with a firm racer favourite – Grizedale. Having been a stalwart of the series since we started in 2014, its a great venue, with big stages and big elevation; technical stages are the norm here; expected to be the toughest of the one day events, priced to include car parking for race day.  Off piste trails with rocks and mud make this a good test of bikes and riders alike and with the final having to count for the series overall ensuring the series winner is a deserved champion. This one day event may well run with the mashup format – TBC

18th October - Hopetech Womens Enduro - Gisburn
A grassroots enduro for women only, emphasis on fun. Hope Technology have heavily subsidised the event so we can pass those savings onto you. The event will run as part of Hope's "Hopetech Women" 2020 event program.  Checkout http://hopetechwomen.com/events for information on other rides, races and demo's. The innargual event run at the end of 2017 was a great success, and we sold out in 2018/2019. Infact the biggest womens event of the year every year its run!

A 10 mile lap with 3 trail centre surfaced stages will give plenty of time to chat to the other women on the day.  3 trail centre surfaced stages - suitable for novices but fun for the experienced racer too
