Classes and Grades

Gold all in,

Riders in this grade can expect two hard days riding that will push riders to their limits. Although not as hard as the Romaniacs it will still be a good work out with a lot of trail riding between the hard bits. There will be 6-8 hard sections per day. Riding time for the fastest in this grade is expected to be between 5-6 hours, Maximum riding time will be 8.5 hrs. Riders entering this class will have to prove to the organisers that they are up to it.

Silver, Silver Veterans 40yrs+, Silver Teams (2 riders)

There will be 3 classes in the silver grade; all 3 classes will ride the same course. The team's class riders must start and finish the event together. Riders in this grade will also be pushed to their limits but no way as hard as the gold grade. A lot more trail riding in this grade with most of the hard bits on the flat or down hill. There will be 5-6 hard sections per day. Riding time for the fastest rider in this grade is expected to be 5 hours. Maximum riding time will be 8hrs.

Bronze, Bronze Veterans 40yrs +, Bronze Teams (2 riders) Bronze Ladies, Bronze Mixed Teams (1male rider, 1 female rider)

There will be 5 classes in the Bronze grade; all 5 classes will ride the same course. The bronze course will be very similar to a modern day enduro ride with a couple of mediocre hard bits thrown in each day that will be on flat or downhill sections. Riding time for the fastest rider in this grade is expected to be between 4-5 hours. Maximum riding time will be 8hrs. Riders under the age of 16 can only ride in the Silver or Bronze teams classes with an adult.

(Maximum riding time means you will have this long to finish the whole course, if it is obvious that you are not going to make it to the end of the day you will be time barred at the next check point you arrive at.)
