RACE RULES

  1. The races will be held both in the "on-sight" format and on previously known trails.

  2. Any attempt to get familiar with the on-sight track on the race day and the day before will be subject to disqualification.

  3. Number of special stages and overall race profile (length and elevation gain) will be announced before the event.

  4. Riders registered in "Race" groups will compete on all special stages. "Hobby" groups will have one less stage to complete. That stage will be announced during the technical briefing before the start.

  5. During the technical briefing each rider will receive a route map with marked start and finish points of each special stage and suggested access roads (with the possibility of obligatory exclusion of certain roads). Exceptions are events with previously known route. In this case the organizer provides the map in digital format.

  6. The special stages and access roads may be covered only by bicycle or on foot. Failure to comply with this rule (e.g. driving a car or using a chairlift) results in immediate disqualification. This does not apply if the organiser allows other forms of transportation in the access sections in the official communication and during the technical briefing.

  7. The access sections will be subject to a time limit, determined by the start time of the SS for a given starting group. If a rider is late and the SS is still open, he/she will be allowed to start in the next group, without disturbing the start of other riders in that group, but will be charged a time penalty (1 minute for every 10 minutes of delay).

  8. The special stages route will be marked with signboards (arrows, exclamation marks, etc.) and tape. In addition, at key points there will be marshals (with radio contact, wearing reflective vests or red "Pokojowy Patrol" outfits).

  9. Repeating the SS during the race is not allowed (even in case of an accident or a bike defect). The only exception is when a competitor has stopped his/her run in order to provide first aid to another rider who has had an accident, or when signs (tapes and arrows) have been removed by third parties along a long section of the route. The decision of whether a SS can be repeated is made by the organizer in consultation with the SS marshal, and the re-run should start before the SS is closed.

  10. A competitor's bike should be well prepared and safe to ride, and most of all have two brakes: front and rear. Its condition can be inspected by a marshal before the race.

  11. Before leaving the race village, bicycles in Hardtail and E-bike categories may be marked with stickers by the organizer (only the frame). These stickers cannot be removed by the racer.

  12. Racers are not allowed to change the bike or the frame and suspension components during the race. Replacement of wheels and other components is allowed.

  13. External technical assistance (from non-racers) is only allowed in designated service areas, i.e. in the race village and the feeding station.

  14. The race should be held in a spirit of fair play. Slower riders should facilitate overtaking by faster ones.

SAFETY RULES

  1. Each rider takes part in the race at their own risk. Enduro racing is an extreme sport, with an increased risk of injury.

  2. Each rider is obliged to follow the instructions of marshals and organizers and to comply with these regulations.

  3. Each rider is obliged to wear a properly fastened helmet, complying with current safety standards, during all special stages and the access sections.

  4. It is recommended to wear full-face helmet, full-finger gloves, goggles/glasses and back, elbow, knee, and tibia protectors during special stages.

  5. Organizer provides essential medical assistance during the race (ambulance at the finish line of each SS and paramedics in the critical spots).

  6. Consumption of alcohol and intoxicants is prohibited during the race, i.e. from the start of the technical briefing until the end of the race at the last SS. In case of being found intoxicated the competitor will not be allowed to start the next SS.

  7. If a competitor notices a serious accident, he/she is obliged to provide first aid and/or call for help (the contact number of the emergency team will be given each time before the race at the technical briefing).

  • Open Men
