      Giant 2W Gravity Enduro - Race 3

      Race 3 of 3. This third and final race is where the series will be decided. Pushed to slightly later in Feb than in previous years the last round of 2W is going to have a festival atmosphere and is likely to have a strong international field as we nip at the heels of the 2020 Crankworx Rotorua event. The 2019-20 2W series, Cole Walker Award & Mark Dunlop Memorial Scholarship winners will be all be announced here so come and get amongst! The Rotorua Giant 2W Gravity Enduro Series races are events for everyone young to old, who loves riding their Mountain bikes, cruising up the hills and racing down. They draw in the riders who seek to have fun and hone their skills on flowing downhill trails. The beauty of these events is that the podium places are a battleground that can see a cross-country machine, passionate Enduro rider, mad downhill rider, or even social weekend warrior push to the front. Skills, fitness and tactics play an equal role in the execution of each ‘Race Stage’ timed run over the course of the event to decide who will be crowned Gravity Enduro champions. Encouraging riders to develop their fitness and skills through the season, each event will get progressively a little harder (fitness and skill wise), gradually challenging riders so by the end of the season they are in the best riding form of their lives. Provided with a map, inside the forest riders select their own route to complete (in any order) either four or six special ‘Race Stages’. These are electronically timed runs of roughly 3–20min duration on specific marked linked trails. On what are commonly known as un-timed transitions, riders may cycle, push their bikes or catch dedicated event shuttle bus transport to the top of hills where the Race Stage starts are located. There will be a ‘Feed Station’ and ‘Technical Zone’ in a convenient location in the heart of the forest for riders to refuel, plus get assistance with any mechanical repairs required. But keep an eye on your watch because you will be given a set time (somewhere between 4hrs–6hrs, depending on the event category entered) to complete the special Race Stages and return back to the finish before you begin to accumulate a time penalty (6 seconds per minute you are late). Division podium place-getters will be those riders with the lowest accumulative special Race Stage times, plus any time penalty for late return to the finish. Age division place getters will get podium presentations with prizing and in addition we reward overall Top 3 place getters from the Six Stage Non-Shuttled event with cash prizes. A carnival atmosphere with great beer, food and music will greet riders at the finish and there is also an enormous bounty of prizes to be given away. Riders have the choice of entering one of five event categories at each of the three races over the season. These are: - Short Stage Shuttled - Short Stage Non-shuttled - Short Stage Non-shuttled e-bike - Long Stage Shuttled - Long Stage Non-shuttled General Scope: - Start and finish times are 10am to approx 4pm - A pedal distance of the entire event 30 - 45km - Prize Giving times will start approx 4:30pm - Every race will have two registration options... - Friday evening at 5-8pm at TB venue - Saturday 7:30am – 9:30am at the race start venue
