Enduro is a new Mountain Bike discipline that is gaining more and more popularity in the US and EU. It’s not Downhill, it’s not Cross Country style of MTB.Enduro racing is heavily inspired by both car rally and motorbike enduro racing. It is a kind of a stage race where the winner is the one who accumulates the lowest combined time from different timed sections. These sections are often technically challenging, ridden on a generally descending terrain. The special stages are linked by ascending intermediate stages i.e. liaison stages, and they may also exist in ski lift rides. The performance of a rider on the intermediate stages does not affect the rider’s result.
Riders will be starting from Olympus peak, the highest point in Cyprus and will be descending towards the villages around Troodos! Many different Mountain Bike routes (mainly descending) for the Enduro Mountainbike competition will offer much fun and action to participants and spectators.
