Are you tough enough to be the 'King or Queen of the Valley?'
Saturday will be the qualifying day where the riders will be given a fire road based test, similar to Erzberg Rodeo Iron Road prologue and an Extreme Prologue to challenge all riders in the style of the Sprint Enduro. Both times will be combined to make a qualifying time. Qualifying will sort out the riders starting position for Sunday’s main event.
On Sunday, riders will set off in rows of 25 into the Welsh forest for 3 long laps.
Despite the lap being so long, spectators will not be cut short and the event will be planned to allow the fans to see plenty of action via the forest’s many interlinking roads or our minibus which be running throughout the day.
All riders book into their ability class and will be graded by the number of laps completed.
• 1 laps, Bronze award
• 2 Laps, Silver award
• 3 Laps, Gold award
Every rider that completes a lap will be awarded a finishers medal, with prizes for 1st 2nd and 3rd in the overall.
Riders results will be defined by the number of laps and checkpoints completed to give your overall result. (e.g. Lap 2, Checkpoint 1). The finish flag will come out for the first rider who completes 3 laps. Once the lead rider finishes the race, the 3 checkpoints will close 1hr after the finish.
It is a three-lap race, the winner is the person who completes the three laps first – simple as that.
The Valleys Xtreme is open to all, but you need to be an experienced rider to complete the course.
