So our first enduro is a cross country? There are lots of cross country races I could go to and most of them are closer than the TSCEC races. First we lost time keepers, then we started having sprint races, now cross countries. How did this happen?

Yet more de-evolution of the sport.
I like cross-country races, but it sure ain't an Enduro.

Hey guys -
Sunday is a restart Enduro!!!!
Yes Saturday is a Grand Prix XC Style race for TSCEC points. I think you will find that you will need just as much endurance on Saturday as you do on Sunday.

As a FYI - We had heard that you (riders) were getting tired of the sprints, so we don't have a lot of other options, Yes I can give you a 30 mile restart on Saturday that you are going to ride again on Sunday. I can give you a sprint, or we could try something new and different. We are trying to change it up a little and still use the resources we have without killing the land and a club.
Come give it a chance you may like our version better than the others. We don't have a lot of wide open flat stuff so it should be interesting, especially ridding race pace for at least an hour.

I am the first to say its a de-evolution of the sport - we also said that when we started having restarts as well. Come race, have fun, and see your friends!!!

Any day on the dirt bike is still better than being a spectator!!!!

So very true. Count me in both days. It will still be better than not riding!

As long as B is not racing the same time as A... I feel better. Those A guys clog up the track with all their constant passing, roost and shenanigans smile

I have been waiting for a chance to ride a Saturday enduro at this property for nearly 4 years. Due to other obligations Sunday's aren't an option for me. I skipped the sprint in December because like the upcoming cross country event -you don't really get to ride very much of what I hear is a magnificent property and the schedule said RESTART FORMAT both days. Now we find out it's not as advertised on the schedule. I couldn't be more bummed and if a day of riding is better than not riding I can do that without driving 275 miles and spending $300-$400 by staying home and riding around here. Forever my friends invited me to the 2 day events and I passed them up only to fall in love with enduros once I tried it at LTR in 2015 since then the schedule has had sprints and now this. I'm not sure of the reasons but it seems like the clubs who have always put on 2 day events now struggle to put on real enduros on day 1
