Mash Up!….
“Wouldn’t it be great to have another chance to go faster, get that corner right or hit that line you missed?
Punctures and mechanical’s are no longer an end to the race day, Ride with your friends and just have
fun… The Mash Up Format allows it all”
The “Mash Up” format has been universally accepted and wholeheartedly welcomed by riders and the
industry alike with more new and not so new riders taking a step and a step back into a stress-free racing
environment.
The 1 day format involves 5 hours of live timing over 3 stages where you can do as many runs as you
like in any order you like and then check your times in the pits! This creates an amazing rider atmosphere
and presence in the pits that other Enduro formats do not have!
We also have an E-bike category which we will push forward even more in 2019
For 2019 we have a 3 race series planned for the year. All rounds will count towards the overall series results with the final round compulsory and inclusive in order to get an overall series ranking.
Each Mash Up round will have 3 stages plus an Ebike stage (where we can!) each one using existing trails albeit in a slightly modified state in some circumstances. The stages will be marked the day before the race so everything is ready to go for race day!
They will be taped and marked like all Gravity Enduro events, with professional timing, marshals and fully trained medics onsite throughout the race day.
Gravity will work for you and against you at these events, as the nature of the stages will demand some pedalling from you to get the most out of them, allowing you to enjoy the gravity assisted parts even more.
The stages for each venue will be released on the evening before the event or kept secret until race day depending on venue and stages used.
Any practice outside of the event is purely at your own risk and all normal rules of the trail and rights of way will apply.
Ride sensibly and in control.
Full face helmets and Personal Insurance are recommended but not mandatory.
We look forward to seeing you at the next event
