We can Enduro! PMBA Enduro at Graythwaite 5/6th September30 July 2020 | By billy1979
It's been a difficult year for events, but new rules announced by the government, and the work British Cycling have done with the Department for Culture, Media and Sport have also given a pathway back to Enduro events.
So far only private venues are opening up for events, so we here at PMBA Enduro have launched a September Enduro at Graythwaite Estate.
Not just an enduro, but an EWS qualifier with 7 stages in the grounds of the Graythwaite estate on the banks of Windermere in the Lake District.
Tickets go on sale 5th August at 7 am - https://www.sientries.co.uk/series.php?series_id=366
This is a proper Lakeland venue, even the transitions are tough (but not timed) expect push-ups to the start of some stages. Camping included within the picturesque grounds of Graythwaite Estate this is a great weekend away. This round has some of the very best views of the whole series.
This is NOT a grassroots round, it's tough and not suitable for a first enduro. Steep trails, a 4-5 hour loop and 7 stages.
Of course, the event will maintain social distancing, 2M rule at all times, and be run with COVID secure guidelines. Some things will not be possible, we'll not be encouraging spectators, our usual spectacular finish into the middle of the arena will not be possible. There won't be the same arena vibe, but the racing itself will be largely unaffected.
Held on Sat/Sun September 5/6th with camping open Friday midday till Monday midday.
EWS Grading - RED 2 - EWS Qualifier status retained!
