FAQ'S

What is Enduro?  

 

 Enduro in its most basic definition is a type MTB racing where the downhills are timed, and the uphills are not. Riders   are timed in stages that are primarily downhill, with neutral "transfer" stages in between. The transfer stages usually   must be completed within a time-limit, but are not part of the accumulated time.

 

What do the enduro race courses look like?

 

 Enduro race stages are predominantly downhill, in West Virginia often on raw, natural terrain. They vary from   short sprints to extreme physical tests, sometimes taking 10 minutes and above even for the fastest racers.   From rocks to tree roots, flat-out fast to tricky technical, and some healthy drops.
