Battle Valleys 2019
« on: August 15, 2019, 12:07:37 pm »
The 2nd running of this Extreme enduro took place once again at Trennerys in the Transkei
The event was really well organised and I was super impressed at how smoothly it all ran (BigDoms son Josh was part of the team :thumleft:)
I took my son and his young mate to ride and of course my CRF450 had to go along as well :biggrin:
The weather really spoilt us and I was also very chuffed to see that the Hotel is in pristine condition and the catering top notch
The entrants were given 3 x options, Bronze,Silver or Gold and could choose as they rode. This is a two day event with the Prologue running Friday and the main race on Saturday
Lil Edgy decided he was riding Bronze and did a brilliant job winning the class :thumleft:

Congratulations on little Edgy's achievement!

If you choose which grade to ride, while you ride, how do they keep tabs on which route riders took?

Danie they have a very clever format whereby from the start every rider rides a Bronze loop which ends at the DSP/refuel point, Bronze riders then ride the Bronze route home. Silver riders ride a Silver loop finishing at the same DSP and then have 3 choices....Bronze route home(Bronze finish) Silver route home or Gold route home. Each route has a marshal somewhere along the way that ties a certain color cable tie on the handlebars proving which route was completed.
Very good system with the only exception IMO is that a Bronze guy winning could suddenly be 2nd or 3rd when a Silver competitor drops a class
