Round 4 will be an Enduro World Series Qualifying event. Points will be allocated from this round for you to participate in the Enduro World Series event scheduled for Derby Tasmania, followed by New Zealand in early 2022.
EWS Qualifier event will take place around the globe in 2021 and are grass roots races that enable riders to earn valuable points that feed into the EWS Global Ranking and to Race in Derby in 2022.
Timing: Timing readers are located at the start and finish of each stage. Prior to starting the event, riders must tag the CLEAR timing control point and then the START timing control point. Each rider will be issued with a timing device on the morning of the event that will activate the timing control points, this is to be attached to your wrist. Please make sure when identifying which wrist to wear it on the device is not next your any Smart Watch (ie Garmin/Apple etc) as may effect the accuracy of the timing device.
At the start line: Riders must be stationary, one foot on the ground and within the starting area (no rolling starts) when they start each stage. Riders will start each stage at 30 second intervals in a scatter format.
It is the responsibility of the rider to ensure that they pass close enough to the timing points for their chip to read. (within 1 meter). Time penalties may be applied for those who fail to do this.
On completion of all stages for the day you MUST download your timing results at registration. No download no time!
Results are based on the total cumulative time across the stages. The lowest time in each category will be the winner. In some cases (e.g. you have stopped to assist an injured rider) a derived time may be allocated to you for a stage. Penalties can also be allocated if riders do not adhere to the race guidelines or information given during the rider briefing on event day.
Prizes: In 2021 we will introduce a prize pool of $10,000 to be awarded across the races for podium winners (1st – 3rd) in all categories.
The Queen Stage: One Special Stage per race will be nominated as the Queen Stage. The winner (per category) of the Queen Stage will be awarded bonus series points. The points are as follows Men: 50 Point Bonus, Women: 50 Point Bonus U21/Master Men: 30 Point Bonus U21/Master Women: 15 Points Bonus.
The aim of the Queen stage is to provide a target for riders who need extra series points, and to provide an exciting focus on the longest, hardest or crux stage of every race. Expect some hard fought Queen Stage victories this season.
