SERIES

"The SES as a top organized national race series will offer young riders as well as amateurs the perfect platform to approach enduro racing. A junior promotion in this area has not existed until now and it is very close to our hearts to push this forward. The performance density in enduro is enormous and therefore it is important to gain experience at a young age."
- Anita Gehrig

How does a SES race work?

Each race consists of 4 - 5 stages (routes). The stages are connected with transfers. Transfers may include lifts and shuttles. The time is measured and accumulated exclusively on the stages.

The fastest overall time wins the respective category.

 

  • Each race lasts 2 days. 1 training day (each stage may only be used once) and 1 racing day

  • 4 - 5 stages are used per race, on which the time is measured.

  • The total separation time is calculated from the sum of the stages. The total separation time results in the ranking.

  • In each race, between the stages, you have to conquer 500-1000 meters of altitude on your own. The organizer can also use mountain railways, lifts and shuttles.

  • There is a Tech. Zone in the middle of the course where small repairs can be done.

  • The organizer provides you with water and a feed zone half way through the course.
