Ride the Rim Rd 1- Ramada Resort route
Most Gravity Enduros run a similar format, its pretty simple really. In the UK Gravity Enduro you practice from 9am saturday morning till about 3pm saturday afternoon. This involves doing the full loop, which will incorporate all five stages, linked together by transitions. Transitions are mostly a steady uphill fire-road/quad track/trail centre type track, to take you up to the start of each separate Stage. You are not timed on these transitions, but do need to be at each Stage by a certain time, so a good level of fitness is also essential. I like to know all the transition times (which are usually signposted at the start of each one) and time them on the saturday, to see how my pace compares. The aim of this is to be as steady as you can on the transitions, conserving energy, without being late. Some parts of a transition may be real steep and easier to push, this is often better than trying to prove to your mates you can ride it, as energy conservation really does count.
Once at a stage, I find it is better to go down at an average pace, as it pays to learn the lines than to give it death (which you ain’t going to be able to do on all five Stages anyway) it’s better to be quick and paced than flat out, blowing and crashing, it’s Enduro not DH! Lots of the timed stages will have pedally sections in, there’s really no point giving these the flat out treatment in practice too, you will only knacker yourself out, save it for the race.
Basically on race day, the full loop is repeated again, with your transition times hopefully being stuck to, sometimes you might find the organisers make the transition between stage 4 and 5 a bit tighter, just to make things a bit tougher when you’re knackered! If you are late for any of the Stages you will receive a one minute time penalty for every minute you are late (some race organisers may not be as strict and may let you slot in) You may have also noticed on the day before that some transitions can be avoided by doing a different route up the hill, but be warned, this can be a disqualifying move, as it’s called Enduro for a reason!
The great thing about Gravity Enduro is that it is so sociable and you usually end up riding the transitions with the same group of people, just chatting and sharing the days riding stories, it really doesn’t feel like a race till you are on that Stage ready to do your thing. I always find, no matter how hard the loop, the day seems to be over in a flash, so make the most of it and ENJOY!
