MASH UP ENDURO RESULTS HERE

After  much consideration, deliberation and scenario planning we have today taken the following decision. Having been one of the worst ski seasons in history and the current lack of snow cover, it would be dangerous (irresponsible) and not enjoyable to have a snowsports stage in this years event.

We have therefore resorted to plan (?) and we will run a Mash Up Enduro on Sunday the 31st of March.

Here are some important details of how it is going to work.

1 There will be Four Stages (not to gnarly) using the fantastic selection of trails at NevisRange

2 Riders will be set of in four waves. 1000, 1015, 1030 and 1100.

3 Riders have 20 time stamps and each stage equals two stamps,  riders must complete all four stages once, if riders chose to do multiple  runs on a stage then the riders  fastest time on the stage is the one that counts. Please note that riders can practice each stage without using a time stamp. Please be aware  other riders on the stage may be on timed runs.

4 Riders must return their timing chip within  5 hours of their start wave.

We think that this format is going to be pretty exciting, for those who have never ridden enduro before this is an ideal Introduro (see what I did there). Entries are open at www.nofussevents.co.uk

Please note we will be marking stages on Saturday, whilst we actively discourage practicing we realise we cannot stop you riding the trails. we therefore request that you have a heightened awareness of others who may be working on the trails on Saturday.

How could we not do it again?

Welcome to Ski-an-duro (or more properly Sgian-dubh-ro)  This was perhaps one of the most exciting, challenging and ultimatly most awesome things we ever got involved with.  The event was  new to our calender for 2018, we want to make it more amazing in 2019.  For those who took part there is no doubt that  Ski-an-duro is  the  most classic  combination,  mixing up snow and ski/board cross with mounatin bike  enduro.

No Fuss Events and Nevis Range are delighted to stage  the second ever ski/board/mountain bike enduro  race in March 2019.

The race is scheduled to take place on the  30th March. The  2019 Ski an Duro race will be open to  200 Individuals.

THE COST OF THIS EVENT DOES NOT INCLUDE THE SNOWSPORT PASS WHICH WILL BE PAYABLE ON THE DAY TO NEVISRANGE AT THE FURTHER COST OF 25 POUNDS

The format is simple:

There will be two stages with your combined time giving you a grid position for the final mass start stage.

Stage One, A classic mountain bike enduro stage utilising one of the many legendary stages at Nevisrange.

Stage Two, The snowsport stage utilising the mountains terrain and maximising the existing snow cover this stage is for skiers or boarders and will present a course as demanding as conditions will allow.

Stage Three, The mass start race from as high on the mountain as conditions will allow, participants will race to the designated transition area before changing to mountain bike and descending  the mountain using parts of  the world famous mountain bike downhill course and other classic enduro routes that the mountain has to offer.

PLEASE READ THE REALITY CHECK

There are so many uncontrolable factors in running this event. Number 1 the weather.

We have therefore decided that for 2019 NO EVENT REFUNDS will be available after the 14/3/19. If we connot run the event on the Saturday the 30th we will try again on Sunday  the 31st. If in the unfortunate circumstances we cannot run on the 31st of March.  We will attempt to run a mash up  Mountain Bike Enduro. The format being four stages  that you can run as many times in four hours with you fastest time on each stage counting towards your result.

4. Please note there is NO practice runs allowed on the bike  or ski or board course. Blind racing!

5. Wearing a buckled helmet is mandatory anytime you are on your bike skies  or board.

6. Ignorance of any rule will not be accepted as an excuse.

7. Foul riding will not be tolerated, unsportsmanlike behaviour is totally unacceptable. This includes the use of profane or abusive language, this rule is taken very seriously by No Fuss and anyone who violates this rule shall be disqualified from this and any future No Fuss events.

8. Shortcutting the course can be grounds for automatic disqualification of any rider or  team. If a rider makes a mistake and they report to officials before it is discovered, a time adjustment will be applied rather than a DQ.

9.  Where practicable riders pushing or walking for whatever reason  should stay on the least rideable portion of the path/piste when being passed. Riders are encouraged to call pleasantly “passing on the right or left” as appropriate.

10. All protests must be made by a team captain to a No Fuss Official ( Frazer, or Spook) Protests can be made throughout the event and up to 15 mins after the final results are posted.

11. Safety on the course is our primary concern. If you come across an injured or a potentially unsafe situation, you are encouraged to stop and assist. If you stop to give assistance for a health and safety related reason, you should report your number to a passing number who will turn it in to an  official. You must then complete your lap and report to the transition official and report the nature of the assistance you provided and an approximate duration of your stop. You will be assigned a stage time. NB Time adjustments are made by a No Fuss official and are final. NOTE This rule applies to ONLY health and safety concerns and not mechanical failure.
