ENDURO

Enduro consists of many different obstacles and challenges where riders race against the clock in a cross-country off-road course. 

In this event, riders leave at intervals, and each interval  starts at a certain minute. The objective of the event is to reach pre-defined checkpoints and eventually across the finish line at the fastest time possible. 

These events are usually held in remote locations such as valleys and hills, offering a quite challenging course which is not for the faint-hearted !

 

TRIALS

Trials is a non-speed event carried out on specialized motorbikes where highly trained riders must ride through an obstacle course while attempting to avoid touching the ground with the feet. The obstacles found within the course may be of natural or constructed elements, carefully designed to test the skills of each rider. Throughout the course, observers count how many times each competitor touches the ground with the foot (or any part of the body). A penalty point is received for each time a competitor touches the ground. The rider with the least amount of penalty points is declared the winner.
