Wellington Enduro Series

Bikes, Beer and BBQ – Wellington Enduro Series kicks off Jan 20th

 

What is the Wellington Enduro Series (WES)?

The WES is a multi round, cross club series. There are four events for the guys, and with the addition of Revolve’s Super V, five for the women. Points will be allocated in each round with *your best three placings* counting towards the overall total. You must compete in at least three events to be eligible for the overall and the crown of the fastest trail rider in Wellington. In addition to this, each round is also a NZ MTB Crown bronze event.

Save the dates:

  1. Mt Crawford Mini Enduro - 20 Jan
  2. Wainui Enduro - 9 March (Doubles as Wellington College and PNP MTB Champs)
  3. Revolve Super V - 23 March (Women’s only event)
  4. Mt Vic Super D - 30 March
  5. Makara Peak Enduro - 6 April (Doubles as the Wellington College Sports Enduro Champs)

First Up – Escape from Mt Crawford Mini Enduro

The first round of the WES will be held at Miramar on Wellington Anniversary Day, Monday Jan 20th. We are hoping for good weather this year and the chance that we will be able to run the Sufferfest Hill Climb up Jail Brake.

The event will be mini enduro style with multiple runs down the tracks in the Miramar Track Project.

Entries are open now on the club site. Discount for all club members.

A big thanks to Burkes Cycles who have supported this event for the last two years and to Placemakers Evan’s Bay for supplying their BBQ mega trailer for this event.

We are also very pleased to announce that the Yeastie Boys are coming on board to support the series with some very tasty prizes (for those over 18).
