Maramarua 3 Day Enduro
Queens Birthday Weekend - June 2013
The M3DE will for 2013 include a round of the National Enduro Champs and a round of the Top Trail Ride Enduro Champs. The format will be thus:
Day One - 1st June National Championship Round
Day Two - 2nd June TTR Enduro Round
Day Three - 3rd June Enduro Sprint
(Whats and Enduro Sprint? This is Special Stages without the riding the trail inbetween. Thus you get to ride the special stages four or five times each over a 5 hour period - we will explain in detail closer to the event)
Three Days Combined - Maramarua Three Day Enduro Title
There will be an M3DE teams award for teams of Three Riders - individual riders can be in up to Two Teams. We are encouraging Manufacturers, Club and Trade teams.
Riders can enter any one of the days riding or enter two or the whole three days. It's going to be great.
The classes will be National Championship classes for the first two days and M3DE classes will prevail for the oversll 3 day result.
Real Time racing like the ISDE and A4DE events which is easier to work out and prepares riders for the big time if they so decide.
Only riders holding a full MNZ Licence can gain points for the National Championship
Day Licences will be available for the TTR Enduro Champs
We will be having a support class for Non MNZ Riders who will qualify for the M3DE overall result.
The course will have Expert/Junior splits which will be manned.
Special Tests (Terrain Tests) will be taped as much as possible to avoid getting lost. We are working towards having a maize paddock test, an open trails test, a tight in the bush test and an Enduro X test. (Juniors won't have to ride the Enduro X) and maybe a couple more for good measure. Yes something for everyone.
