Minimum Age: 17

Date: 15th February 2019

Early Birdy Entry Fee (KSh): 3,000

Enduro is a type of mountain bike 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.

Enjoy the trails, have fun, meet people, ride great technical trails. Be happy to take responsibility for yourself and anything that happens on the Trail. Bicycles must be robust and in good working order. Tubeless tires pretty much a must. Come prepared with: Spares, mini pump, multi tool, tubes, zip ties, puncture repair kit, phone, spare hanger, tire levers, first aid kit, water, food & snacks…MUST have experience on technical trails.

Come for a real “adventure” ... It’s going to be a great ride! Keep the rubber side down!!
