Doug Wisor Memorial Enduro
10am, Sunday 4th November, 2018 : Pan Pac Eskdale MTB Park - Hawkes Bay

6 Enduro stages totalling 16.1km, thru the Mill + Replanted Blocks of Pan Pac Eskdale MTB Park, with shuttle uplifts between some of the stages, all run in a set order.
A 'Fun Event' category is available for the not so adventurous thru the 3 "easier" stages of 1, 4 + 6 (total 7.1km).
* A course map will be released 3 weeks prior to the event.

What is Enduro?
Cruise-up, Race-down. Welcome to the most fun you’ll ever have mountain-biking! The sport of Enduro encapsulates everything people love about the sport of mountain-biking – the adventure, challenge, adrenaline fix, combined with fun social riding: and at the same time teases out the little bit of competitiveness and thrill-seeker we all have inside of us.

Electronic timing (http://www.o-lynx.com), just like what the pro's use in the Enduro World Series, will be used.
Prize-money will be up for grabs for the winners of each Enduro category ($50 each), plus a bonus $50 for the overall winner.
The overall local resident winner will win the coverted memorial trophy.

* $45 online entry fee; or $60 OTD entry (cash only) for Enduro riders
* $25 online entry fee; or $40 OTD entry (cash only) for Fun Event riders
* Online Entry will be available soon.

Categories:
* Enduro Masters Men (40+); Enduro Masters Women (40+); Enduro Men; Enduro Women; Enduro U19 Men; Enduro U19 Women
* Fun Event Men; Fun Event Women; Fun Event U19 Men; Fun Event U19 Women

A local 31 yr old winemaker and adventurer into all sports, who tragically died while kite-surfing at Te Awanga (near Hastings/Napier) back in October 2004.
Our annual club event started in October 2007 as a Super-D, in his memory.

Doug Wisor Memorial Endurostage change
Due to the Skyline track closure in particular, for access into the Replanted Block, we have had to revise stage 2.

The 2.65km "Cannonbal-Rollie" leg has now been changed to the approx 3km "Tardis-Shags-Mint-Onceler" combination.

NB: Pan Pac have given us special permission to run this event next Sunday 4th Nov. Therefore, as mentioned yesterday with the Loop Road closure, all of stage 5 and the road section of stage 3, will only be available/open on-the-day of the event. All other stages are open to ride at anytime. (Membership/permit required for access outside of the event).

This means there will now be shuttles available between every stage.
We'll be using the same type of timing system that they use for the EWS, with a flying start/finish.
