Competition Bulletin: Results Update for Full Gas Sprint Enduro Round 2, Day One

March 2, 2019 – Blackshear, GA – During the second test of racing during today’s event, course conditions deteriorated to the point where the Full Gas track crew was forced to re-route multiple points of the enduro test mid-race. Unfortunately, these changes were made during the middle of the race and because of that some riders were able to take advantage of the shorter re-routes while others were not, and in some cases were stuck for substantial amounts of time that riders in the class didn’t have to endure. Due to these facts, and pursuant to the AMA rulebook (see below) the decision was made to throw this test out for the amateur classes. Unofficial results with these changes are now posted online at results.sprintenduro.com for review.

In a similar set of circumstances, in the 4thtest of the day, the Pro-Am class encountered multiple pieces of the track where course markings had been torn down which caused multiple riders to end up off track and on parts of the track that had been cut out from re-routes after the first enduro test. Course workers were able to correct these issues before any other classes were affected and because of this, only the Pro-Am class will have results dropped from the 4thtest.

19. If a timing device is discovered to be inaccurate by five or more seconds, or if any timing device fails, that check station will be considered an observation check only. If an error in mileage, time or placement of a checkpoint, scoring irregularities or course irregularities occurs, the check must not be adjusted and will be used only as an observation check. Missing an observation check is the same as leave ng the course.

“I’ve watched as FXR has made its presence known in the off-road world and kept an eye on their awesome looking product as more and more racers began wearing it at our events. When the opportunity arose for us to make a new relationship for our official gear sponsor FXR was the first company that I reached out to. Their gear is of amazing quality in both materials and design and Andy and his crew understand how important it is to support both racers and series at a grass roots level, all things that we’re obviously huge fans of,” said series founder, Jason Hooper.

“I am really excited to have this opportunity to support such a great program as the Full Gas Sprint Enduro Series. FXR builds great product and partnering with the series only seems like a natural fit for us. We look forward to seeing growth in the sprint enduro scene here in North America and we’re happy to be along for the ride,” added FXR’s Brand Manager, Andy White.
