Reminder to Enduro riders from the Trials and Enduro Committee

Friday February 2, 2024 at 2:29pm

With the increase in interest in the ACU's Extreme Championship and with the Cross Country Championship about to start, we have seen an increase in new riders taking part in our events who may not be familiar with essential rules.

Below are some of the rules which as a newcomer, you might not be aware of.

In addition, this is a timely reminder to existing Enduro riders of the following Enduro Standard Rules for your next and future events with us.

Please note that when we refer to Enduro riders this includes Hare n Hounds, Cross Country, Extreme / Hard Events, Sprint Enduros as well as traditional Timecard Enduros). These regulations might seem petty and irrelevant as far as riding you bike is concerned but are in place for safety and continuation of our sport so please obey them !!!
