THE EVENT

Valleys Xtreme is an extreme enduro, so it's designed to push you and the bike to the limit. The AM race is designed around Clubman and Sportsman riders, on a challenging yet enjoyable track. Our goal is to provide an optimum riding experience for all levels.

As an extreme, we aim to push you as a rider, but ultimately allow you to overcome the obstacles. Last year 87% of riders completed one lap. Push yourself and see what you're capable of.

We run the following classes & following races

AM Race:
Sportsman
Clubman B
Vets B

PM Race:
Pro
Expert
Clubman A
Vets A

No. All these will be provided to you when you turn up to the event and sign on at Registration.

Over 150 riders take part and we normally have many named international riders too.

They need to be a minimum age of 16 years old.

The finish flag comes out for the lead rider of the AM & PM race The flag will come out as when the lead rider has completed the required 2 laps (AM Race) or 3 laps (PM Race) For the other riders still out on track, you will be stopped at the next checkpoint, you finish position will be reverted to the previous checkpoint you had ridden through. E.G. Lap 2, Checkpoint 1.

A day or two after the event. This gives us time to correlate all the data and present it correctly. We will announce the top three on the day and give out their trophies.

No crashing allowed, but if you do, you're responsible for any damages & costs incurred to you or your bike. All participants are required to sign a waiver (When you sign on). We'll have onsite medics (St. Johns) should you need them.

Valleys Xtreme is a solo race. However, you can compete against your mates in the Positions Table as we will not only record the laps but also the checkpoints too.

MOTORBIKE

No, you can only use one bike providing the bike passes scrutineering. (the bike you use for qualifying will be used for the main race)

No, we accept any bike, not matter how big or small they are. We've had Pit bikes right through to trails bikes. As long as it’s got an engine, you can race on it.

We accept any tyres, be it MX or Enduro. We have no restriction on tyre choice.

If your bike breaks down, PLEASE don't venture off the track & make your own way back to the pits (even if you THINK you know the way back!).  The venue is very vast and riders have been known to get lost.

Like-minded riders are known to stop and offer assistance, if not, stop a rider and ask to pass the message onto the next control point or marshal.

Wait where you are and a travelling marshal will be along shortly and can radio through to arrange collection. There is no cost involved, however feel free to buy the marshal a drink after the event.

If you cannot do another lap, simply park your bike in the pits and wait till the race has finished. You can then ride your bike to the finish line, and claim your finishing medal.

If you are still on track and can't finish the lap, simply ride to the next checkpoint (Only ride in the flow of the traffic NOT against it) and make the officials aware you can no longer complete the race and you finish position will be collated, dependant on what lap and where you are on the track.
