About the Races

The race format will suit anyone with a trail, enduro, hard tail or e-bike and enough stamina for a good day’s riding.  Whilst the top riders enter to win, it’s more about getting out on your bike in a stunning location, having a go and enjoying the friendly banter. 

The South of England, although beautiful is not blessed with Mountains so Pedalhounds have introduced shorter gravity fed runs, but more of them for a full day of timed stages and a lot of riding for your entrance fee!

The Race Format

  • 3 laps of between 3 to 5 km in length
  • 3, 4 or 5 timed short gravity fed stages
  • Each stage will be ridden 3 times
  • Fastest 2 out of 3 run times per stage will be added together for riders overall position.
  • Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 finishers in each category and fastest rider of the day (excluding e-bikes)
  • Series Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 points scorers in each category. Riders best 6 out of 7 results will count towards their overall series result.
  • Entries are limited to 260 riders per race.

Instead of having 4 to 6 timed stages throughout the day you’ll get between 9 to 15!

The stages on each lap can be ridden in any order in a mash-up style, with no time restraints on transitions from one stage to another.

We’re getting back to the true ethos of enduro, stages will be run blind – there will be no practice before the racing starts, although the stages will be available for inspection on foot the day before and on the morning of the event giving everyone a level playing field…
