The 828 Gravel Enduro Relay is brand new for 2018 and is a great endurance challenge.
828 Gravel Enduro is a 12-hour relay race, which is completed on a 4 mile mixed terrain circuit. The winning team in each classification is the one that rides the most laps over the duration of the event. With an indoor start and transition area, we’ll have the music pumping to ensure there’s a party feel throughout. Teams will ride for 12hrs and then complete the lap they are on. If it is a close finish then time differences across the line on the final complete lap will come into play. Electronic timing will be used and check mats on the route.
There are five classifications available to enter, each with an individual podium presentation. The classifications include:
The surfaces on the circuit are mixed with some tarmac, concrete, gravel, and a little grass; the lap even passes through some buildings. Gravel or X-bikes are recommended, but city hybrid bikes or equivalent will also be sufficient. Mechanical and medical support services will also be on hand to help out if needed.
