Enduro FAQ’s

Q: Do I have to ride the whole route in practice?
A: Yes, the route will not be the standard QECP routes, even stages that follow the existing trails will be tweaked.We want you all to have a good look at the stages in the light before you race them in the dark.It will also be a good opportunity to judge what kit/bike setup/protection you should use for the race.
Q: What time will it all be kicking off?
A: Here is the plan at the moment, although things might change a bit closer to the time.
  • Sat 17:15 – Marshalls’ briefing
  • Sat 17:30 – Riders’ briefing
  • Sat 18:00 – Start of practice
  • Sat 20:15 – End of practice/start of race
  • Sat 23:00 – End of race
Q: How long is the race and how much elevation is there?
A: The full loop will be 16km so ridden twice 32km. You are looking at about 510m of elevation per lap so over 1000m for the whole thing.
Q: What kind of trails will be used?
A: The stages will be a mix of red trail sections and fresh cut trail. If you are looking for what kind of skill level you will need, think a bit harder than the red trail – there will be some super steep fresh cut sections. There will also be some features in the stages, but all the non-rollable ones will have chicken lines round them, take your time in practice and have a good look at these.
Q: Any info about the stages?
A: There will be 4 stages all practiced once and raced once. Longest one will be about 5mins and the shortest about 2.5mins.
Q: How did the race and format come about?
A: It’s really all thanks to Hargroves Cycles – if it wasn’t for QE Cyclefest we would not be able to hold a race in the main park. Hargroves are also helping us out with prizes and some infrastructure for the race village. As for the format, we originally wanted to run a race like the QECP Trail Collective Enduro in 2013, but the park has stipulated that the race has to start after the bulk of the other users have gone home. So the QECP Day & Night Enduro 2014 was born.
Q: Can I cancel my booking if I can’t make the race?
A: Pre race is a very busy time for us, therefore the refund policy if you wish to cancel a booking is:
  • 14 days+ notice: full refund.
  • 7-14 days notice: 50% paid back.
  • 7 days or less notice: no refund.
Q: If I don’t sign up in time is there a way I can still race?
A: We will have a reserve list and if anyone cancels we will offer the place out to the name on top of the list.
Q: Where does the money go?
A: All the money made in the race will be going back in to the trail at QECP.
