Venue is great and the track is challenging and varied. Three timed laps without a warm up is a bit much. Would have preferred a sighting lap and then maybe recharge batteries for one or two fast laps. Shame they don't have mains power there as there weren't enough chargers to go around. Would have liked to done some racing on the small track... Possibly a smaller overall enduro loop would have been fine.
Thanks for your review you make a good point, most riders did not complete the 3 laps.
In all honesty 3 laps of a 5 mile course should be possible with these bikes even at speed (our fastest lap time rider also completed 3 laps)
As this is an endurance race our hope is to push manufacturers to increase range, 15 miles of hard enduro should not be difficult.
A suggestion was made to run 2 races AM / PM but then we are looking at everyone needing to charge during the break.
If you have any suggestions please contact us.
Day was well run, good challenging course. Had everything from slow and technical to fast and flowing. Was a long track and sometimes difficult to tell which ways the course went.
Made the circuit but was on the limit of what the standard battery could take range wise. With the amount of riders that was there could have ran a smaller track and maybe two shorter races. (Am and pm to recharge over lunch or similar). Overall was a cracking day out and will be looking out for any more events listed.
A very well organised event with such a great atmosphere! I can’t wait for the next event
This was a brilliant event, the turn out was very impressive and the event remained highly organised and great fun!
The crew were very helpful throughout the day!
