The event is made up of two days of fun over the Saturday and Sunday. You need to be at the event with all your buddies on the Saturday to set up your camp, sign on, scrutineer your bike and helmet, get your transponder, race the footrace for your starting position, learn the dos and don’ts at riders briefing, try your luck in the raffle, and chill out with a few brews around the campfire. This event is much more than Sunday’s racing. To keep the track pristine for Sunday’s racing, bikes are not allowed on the course on Saturday. Depending on the venue, riders may be permitted to walk the course on Saturday afternoon.
Each team will need between three and six tanks (30-60 litres) of fuel to complete the event – depending on whether it’s a six-, eight- or 12-hour event. These calculations assume a single four-stroke running for the full six/eight/12 hours (bear in mind that most two-strokes are thirstier). You would then divide this calculation between however many bikes your team plans to use.
MECHANICAL SUPPORT & SPARE PARTS
In the spirit of the events, mechanically minded pit neighbours can always be called on to help fix any problems with your bike, but because there may not be any official mechanical support at the event, it’s important you make sure your bike is well maintained, and that you bring any spares and tools you’re likely to need for running repairs. If in doubt, get your local dealer or mechanic to service your bike well in advance of the event to ensure it’s up for the challenge.
The events are not really equipped to handle spectators, and spectators are not allowed on the course itself. Competitors are welcome to bring a team helper or two, but there is no additional camping space outside each teams’ 6x12m Pit Plot. The events’ amenities allow for all competitors, plus a few extra ‘helpers’, but any more than that and we risk overloading the venue’s amenities, which could be unpleasant for everyone.
FOOD & BEVERAGE
Most events have on-site food and drink options. However, if your food and drink requirements are of a specific nature (and your rate yourself as an athlete), we recommend bringing your own supply of food and drinks for the wekend.
