Filinvest City Endurance Weekend 2016: MTB Race


Notably, more and more people are actively participating in various sports activities. Aside from running and multisport, cycling or biking has attracted a significantly large chunk of the population. You see them in groups day in and day out, and during weekends. And like a good friend of mine, Lara Parpan, I’ve seen a lot of people even come to work on their bikes!

And to provide a more challenging, exciting and safer venue for these cycling enthusiasts, whether it’s competitive racing or not, Filinvest City is again hosting the Endurance Weekend: MTB Race.

Sounds exciting, yes? Check out the race details here!

Bike Course:

The course is a loop course of up to 6.2KM consisting of single-track and asphalt roads. It will be marked by the use of a mixture of arrows, buntings, and traffic cones.

There will be sections throughout the course where there are no markings.

There will be no decision points either –just keep riding. At the end of each lap the course passes through Transition Zone.

Control Point
  • There will be at least one control point out on the course. It will be manned for the full 24 hours and race numbers will be checked.
  • To assist, please call out your race number to the control point team. Additional spot checkpoints may be positioned at random locations.
  • The control point will have radio contact with the Race HQ.
Race Numbers:
  • Each rider is given an individual race number. This must be attached to the seatpostof the bike.
  • In order for your lap to be timed and counted you must ensure that your race number is visible.
  • Do not deface, or trim the race number.
Transition Zone:

The Transition Zone (TZ)is the only area where you can exit the race course. This is also where teams swap riders and hand over the band. Spectators are not permitted in the TZ.

As you come through the TZ, here are a few simple rules to make life easier for everyone:

  • WALK, WALK,WALK (there is no riding in the TZ).
  • Call out your number to the timing crew to assist in recording your lap.
  • Help your team mate with the transition.
  • After you have completed the transition, VERY promptly clear the area and move outside the TZ to catch your breath, have a chat or warm down.
Finishers:

All teams or individuals must complete the minimum number of laps to be counted as a finisher.

Minimum Number of Laps:

SOLO
24 Hour: 24 laps
2 Hour: 12 laps
6 Hour: 6 laps

TEAM
24 Hour Teams of 3: 8 laps per member
12 Hour Teams of 2: 6 laps per member

Get ready for another epic cycling event coming your way!
