What are the racing categories, and how do I know which one to enter?

Mini Enduro races are divided into categories based on racer ability, fitness, and experience. Certain categories are also divided by age group. We ask that you race your age as of 1/1/2019, but we probably won’t card you.

Youth

Designed for kids 12 and younger. We recommend kids not be younger than 6 years old.

Kids must be able to pilot their bikes by themselves and must be able to complete the Stages and the Transfers on their own, without assistance.

Parents may ride behind their child if needed, but may not interfere with their kid’s ride or with any other racer. Parents must sign a waiver.

Beginner: Racers who are new to riding mountain bikes.

Experienced riders who are new to racing may be candidates for the Beginner category, but if the friends you ride with every week race Sport or Expert, you should consider at least racing Sport.

Sport: Novice to experienced riders, racing to challenge yourself, not ready for Expert competition (yet).

New, fit riders; experienced riders new to racing; experienced riders who race to challenge themselves are candidates for sport class. Sport classes are our most popular!

Masters: Experienced riders with technical confidence and fitness who prefer to not mix it up with the larger Expert classes.

Women’s Pro/Expert: Experienced riders with technical confidence and the need for more speed.

You slay the sport class, you race to race, you really want to beat your friends. We’d love to see enough Expert and enough Pro women racing to split this category!

Expert: Experienced riders with technical confidence and the need for more speed.

You slay the sport class, you race to race, you really want to beat your friends. The pro riders are still much faster than you are.

Pro: Crush racers in the Expert category and/or have a pro license in MTB.

The fastest of the fast and getting faster.
