Mini Enduro is the new fun exciting way to race Mountain Bike Enduro. It’s aimed at bringing new riders to the sport but there is also the Pro-am category for the more experienced racers too.

You’ll have a top day out racing with live timing on all stages, a fun atmosphere and all topped off with great prizes from our sponsors.

 

Eastridge & Shropshire

The very best of mountain biking is on offer around Shropshire with all styles of riding catered for with some of the classic tracks from when mountain biking began.

The home of many early regional races from XC to DH have been held at Eastridge and even hosted the National Championships the premier race on the mountain bike calendar. In fact we will be racing on parts of the old National Champs course from way back then.

The Eastridge Trail Partnership is a group of very passionate riders who have spent long hours working hard to maintain tracks in Eastridge and have are having a special dig day especially for the One Industries Mini Enduro. They want the trails in tip top condition for all the riders that are coming to Eastridge to see how good the place really is. We will of course being giving a donation to these guys to help towards the up keep of the trails so the more riders that race the more money we can donate.

The Mons and Jockeys will be out in force for this race, facebook and twitter lit up when the news got out that the race would be held at Eastridge.

Andy Gowan said

“we’re really excited to be involved with the Mini Enduro – it’s a great format and is a fantastic grass roots event. I think many first timers find the traditional DH race format quite intimidating – the Mini Downhill concept opens up Enduro racing to a bigger audience and at a much more accessible price, offering a course which will offer challenges for more accomplished riders but not too much to scare off the mere mortals!”

Chris Roberts race organiser and the brains the idea of the Mini Enduro said

” There are loads of people who ride around the area that have never raced, so we have brought a race to their local track, The course is fun and following to ride but a real challenge to ride flat out on the limit.”

    Looks good, shame there isn’t much time to plan for it! Last minute on the planning or the posting?

  2. unleash

    sorry but 45 quid dont sound very grass roots to me

    1. gido

      agreed. I really want to race at Eastridge and was gutted that gravity enduro wasn’t going there this year. But this price is prohibitive for me.
