Enduro Basics

Intro

The sport is based on riders attempting to maintain an exact schedule, regardless of the difficult terrain and conditions they may encounter. Checkpoints, where crews will mark the time of each rider arrival, are located along the course. After the race, the score of each rider is calculated. The riders with the lowest number of penalty points are awarded trophies in their respective classes.

Scoring

All checks -

LATE: More than 60 minutes and 59 seconds – disqualified from that point.

 

Secret -

EARLY: 2 points for the first minute, plus 5 points for each additional minute

LATE: 1 point for each minute.

 

Emergency -

The major points are computed like a Secret check, with Tie-breakers points placed after the major points.

Tie-breaker points are the total number of seconds from the 30 second point of the rider’s due minute.

 

Known -

EARLY: Zero points for early up to 15 minutes, 2 points for each minute for an early departure.

LATE: 1 point for each minute.
