Welcome to the home of the Welsh Gravity Enduro Series and Mash up!
With the rise of Gravity Enduro rising to unforeseen popularity it became obvious that a series based around trail centres was much needed by people wanting to dip a toe into racing a Gravity Enduro, so, for 2015 onwards… Myself ( Charlie Williams) Course setter and clerk of the course for the UK Gravity Enduro series and Chris Roberts of Action Sports Timing, Mini Enduro, Mini Downhill fame and official timer to the UK Gravity Enduro Series will be running a winter/spring series and an Autumn/Summer series for 2016 based at 6 of the best Trail centres/Bike parks that Wales and just over the border has to offer.
New Format for 2016…..
Wouldn’t it be great to have another chance to go faster, get that corner right or hit that line you missed?… now you can with the Mash Up format! Stages are live timed for 5 hours giving you ample time to do as many runs as you like and get timed for each one. You can even have your time texted to you after every run (optional). You can race the stages in any order you like but you must complete every run, NO sectioning!!
The first Mash Up race of 2016 will return to it’s origins at Afan Forest, Glyncorrwyg where we will have 4 timed stages for you to indulge in… check out the rest of the series venues and dates on the website.
Entries for the spring series will go live 09:00 January 2nd 2016 and the Autumn series 28th May, to enter online click ENTER
Each round will have 3 stages plus maybe a bonus stage at the first round… 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 kept secret till 1 week before the event or later.
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
