It’s fun, it’s exhilarating, its Extreme Enduro X this weekend
Are you looking for something completely different to do this weekend? Does action get your heart beating a little bit faster? Well then, welcome to the world of Extreme Enduro X – Say what?
This is every adrenaline junkies dream as it is action packed, full of fun and bursts with energy. Enduro X is described as a hybridization of supercross and enduro racing so while you’re watching from the sidelines you can be sure that the riders will be battling it out in the field. Not only will you see some top riders you’ll witness them tackling technical obstacles (think log pits, monstrous rocks, concrete pipes, ever changing mud baths and truck tires). I’m tired just thinking about what hard work that is but at the same time sitting on the edge of my seat!
Riders will be tested to their mental and physical limits and you the spectator will be wowed by a variety of tricks, thrills and spills. Make your way to the Daytona Adventure Park, just past Fourways, Gauteng on Saturday 18 September 2010. The event will kick off at 08h00, so make sure you don’t have too much of a late one on Friday night.
The race begins with the riders taking a few practise laps around the course as this gives them time to plan their strategy. From there it’s broken into heats in different classes with the actual race beginning at 09h00. Amateur, Open and Seniors, the seniors class is for riders aged over 38 years – and here I thought seniors only referred to my grandparents!
In each heat between 8 and 10 riders will compete to do the most laps in 15 minutes. From there the top four riders will move on to the next round. There will also be last chance qualifiers (LCQ’s) for those who don’t make it into the next round. The race works on a knock out basis and the finals will take place at approximately 15h00.
Come early and pick your favourite rider to support throughout the day, but come and have a bit of fun and don’t have the usual Saturday spent on the couch. As a spectator you will have a sufficient area where you can view the entire track. On the day you will be able to see riders as young as 14 years strutting their stuff and showing us just how good they are. Entry fee for spectators is R50 and there will be plenty of food and drink available throughout the day and you are able to bring in camping chairs if you so desire.
