What is a sprint enduro?
Picture the sweetest, best flowing grass track you’ve ever ridden combined with some great, wide, fast trails, and you holding it full gas (Euro slang for wide open) for 8-10 minutes around the track trying to do a lap as quick as possible. This is enduro racing, so you’re racing against the clock not head-to-head against other riders.
Okay, that description didn’t make any sense to me, can you try and explain this to me one more time?
Riders will race two “special tests” 4-5 times each, for total of 8-10 tests a day. One special test will be a 3-4 mile “cross test” consisting of nearly 95% grass track and/or motocross track. The other will be an “enduro test” featuring wide, flowing, groomed trails and will be 3-4 miles. Riders will take off in 15-second intervals.
How will the race be timed and how will results be calculated?
Every rider will either rent, or purchase, a MyLaps Transponder that will be mounted to their fork tube between the triple clamps. The transponder will read when the racer crosses the start and the finish to give them a total time for the test, down to the .001 of a second. At the end of the day, the rider with the least amount of time spent and having completed all of the tests will be the winner.
Why would I want to come race this event?
It’s fun! With fun, flowing, fast courses riders of all ability levels will get the chance to hang it out for the entirety of their lap without having to worry about fatigue setting in. No one can race with 100% intensity for a 3-hour hare scramble or even in a 30-minute moto. This is your chance to pin that thing for 8-10 minutes, take a breather and bench race with your buddies, then do it all over again, and again, and again! Also, until now, this racing format could only be found on a National level in Europe or Australia, or at the ISDE so this is your chance to check out special test racing without leaving the good old USA!
Is there transfer trail between tests?
No. The start and finish of the test will be very closely located. Finish a test, head back to your truck for a drink or bike maintenance, then come hang out in the staging area with your buddies and wait for your next lap. No transferring, no time keeping, just fun.
Do I have to keep time?
Not in the traditional sense of an old-school time keeping enduro. In the general sense, you’ll need to be ready for your next lap when it’s your turn to go. We’ll let everyone know a general time to be ready based off of rider turnout and test length.
Do I have race both days?
No, not in 2022 you don’t race both days. We will get each rider/class around 120 minutes of seat time in one day of racing. In past Full Gas events riders would get a total of 120 minutes of seat time over the two days of racing. With the new 2022 changes, riders will have less travel days and less sitting around waiting to go Full Gas!
What is the new race format each day?
The new 2022 race day format will only allow riders to race either on Saturday or Sunday pending upon your AMA classification.
