Stage 1

ONE Ind MINI ENDURO Race report

STAGE 1, stage one started out flat with some gully type turns before hitting the loam section, After this it was down on to the rocks and berms of the Haldon black trail, This was the longest stage and the stage that felt the most all-mtn.  I rode smooth but safe to get this stage done and make time on the more tech stages ahead.
GOPRO of stage 1 from 2012:

Stage 2, This would be on one of the old trails that was used as an On A Bike DH race many years ago, Once again loam turns followed by some small steps and in to the tight shoot and gully, Once your out of that its over the blue with a few flat turns a new small table jump to the finish. Sadly my timing was wrong and the second run was a mess as my front brake faded out and i ended up with a slower sloppy run.

Doom trail, flat turns followed by off camber section and then some grass slick turns to the finish. Top section was hard work with only a rear brake and i ended u hitting a tree just before the off camber, lower two wheel drift turns were better, Off the brakes i made a bit of time back.

Haldon mini Enduro report

So this first mini enduro went off last sunday, how was it?? Good, It used the best trails at Haldon and a good bunch of riders turned up to shred on a very wet day, timing was a little off and i was gutted to have to do a stage twice only to have a mechanical problem on my second run, (but thats UK enduro right now and kind of standard..), i think the race was well run. Low points that could be better... This is Enduro not push up DH day! So many riders failed to ride the 20min+ red to stage one and just cheated by rolling down the road from the car park to stage one, fresh bike and fresh legs... its enduro and you should ride the stages that are not timed and not cut the sections (Athertons included), Be nice if you could ride round with you mates rather in number order? You should have a set time to get from point A to point B like in moto enduros and some mtb enduros, so a level of fitness and speeds still needed on the untimed sections.Also blind runs, save the track from getting so cut up and leveling things out a little,  Its early days for the mini enduros and with some fine tuning it could be amazing. Good news had to be good numbers what must mean its worth doing for the race organiser. Thats my feed back on a cracking weekend.

RM ready for mini enduro.. old skool style, front mech, no dropper post, xc tyres..


The first Mini Enduro kicks off at Haldon this weekend, it seem the locals have been riding the trails for the last few weeks? But still its not a series so just a mellow start to the year results are just a bonus, As for me were going to be trying some new tyres and pedals to see how they go before some of the bigger races later in the year. Dan Atherton looks to be the big name turning up as well as loads the gravity Enduro race series guys, should be good to meet people and get some riding in even if the weather looks to be wet and wild it will be a good time.
