New Mini-Enduro Series
« on: May 31, 2016, 08:43:16 am »
Enduro World is planning a new Mini-Enduro Series aimed at Junior and Novice riders, but also accommodating Dual-Purpose Riders. The series is designed to help young and new riders to develop basic skills and gain racing experience in a controlled, fun environment.

We plan to kick off at Wild West where a separate new track is being prepared especially for us, on Saturday 11th June 2016.
Following registration the day will begin with an hour of coaching by pro/ experienced riders on basic techniques. Riders Briefing will then take place, followed by heat races and wrapping up at about 13h30.

The course – will be a fun track of approximately 2 to 3 km’s long, mostly flowing but with lots of twists and turns and mildly technical sections (within each classes capabilities).

Enduro Classes (actual classes run on the day will depend on entries and interest):
Bobcat – For the very new young riders on small bikes like PW50/ 80, OSET, KTM 50
Puma – For the quicker young riders on bikes like PW80, CRF70, KTM 50 etc (non geared or semi auto)
Cheetah – For the slightly bigger kids on up to 65cc two stroke (or similar 4 stroke) geared bikes
Leopard – Kids on 85cc bikes (or similar 4 stroke) not ready for Pro Mini
Pro Mini – advanced kids up to 15 years old on 85cc (or equivalent 4 stroke)
Green – For novice adults (up to Club level – not including Intermediate riders)
Ladies – For novice ladies over 16 (come on Mom’s, you can do it)

Dual Purpose Classes (must be actual dual-purpose bikes, no roadworthied enduro bikes)
Single – e.g. KTM 640/ XR 650/ XT 660/ KTM 690/ Husqvarna 701
Mid – up to 1000, e.g. KTM 950/ 990/ BMW 800/ Triumph 800/ Africa Twin
Open – e.g. BMW 1200 GS/ KTM 1050/ 1190

The events would be WOMZA affiliated - participants would require a WOMZA license and medical cover that covers you for dirt bike racing.
WOMZA has come to the party in order to encourage growth in the sport and we are able to offer Club Membership and a license for the remainder of 2016 for just R200. We will also make the process of getting your license painless by handling that for you.

Please help us gauge the interest by emailing info@enduroworld.co.za if you would be interested and would enter your kids/ yourself. Constructive comments also welcomed.

+1
I'm keen to get into racing, but I'm a slow learner, so not keen to just jump in and buy an enduro / racing bike.
[OK, truth is that I'm a poor bastard and can't justify the expense]
But I have a dual sport bike and would like to improve my speed and skills. One day when I'm big I'll want to race, but I am keen for an easy way into it . . .

This sounds like it will cater exactly for my needs. Great initiative! I hope it is super successful!!

Hendrew - it is good to see what these guys are doing up north
WCOC host Off-Road Races in WC - see WCOC Swartbergvlei thread on this forum.
We run three separate tracks, kiddies (4yrs up), juniors & ladies intro, then seniors.
WOW license makes it accessible & R350 including entry fee if you have your own medical cover or purchase once off R200 for the year.
Mostly our races can be ridden with RR bikes like 701 downwards (KB 400 National will be another story in August - but the junior loop is available).
Swarbergvlei is 90% sand & will be a proper workout.

see www.wcoc.co.za
Why not try it ?
No Road like Off-Road

I'm thinking of taking the boys to go and spectate a bit. They don't have wheels at the moment.

Hi SteveD,
I have some ways to go . . . the closest I have been to racing is being on the pit crew for a WCOC event. Looking at it is scary enough!

I would be keen to see this Mini-Enduro format in the Cape. Even the WCOC events that cater for RR bikes is still a bit out of reach for me.
But one day . . .

They are considering a second one, currently gauging interest.
So how many dogs are willing to pay good money to see me make a fool of myself again? Bring your little ones, they should enjoy lapping me.....
