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.)
