Coyote Creek Sprint Enduro - Oct 14th 2018 at Metcalf

I have entered...
I'd post the flyer if I was less computer lame
http://timekeepersmc.com/wp-content/...nduro-2018.pdf
this is the SBR Thread:
https://www.southbayriders.com/forums/threads/158841/

But you ask...
A "Sprint Enduro" is...
http://www.sprintenduro.com/faq/

Picture the sweetest, best flowing grass track you’ve ever ridden combined with some great, wide, fast trails, and you holding it full gas (Euro slang for wide open) for 6-10 minutes around the track trying to do a lap as quick as possible. This is enduro racing, so you’re racing against the clock not head-to-head against other riders.

Okay, that description didn’t make any sense to me, can you try and explain this to me one more time?
Riders will race two “special tests” 3 times each, for total of 6 tests a day. One special test will be a 2-3 mile “cross test” consisting of nearly 100% grass track and/or motocross track. The other will be an “enduro test” featuring wide, flowing, groomed trails and will be 3-4 miles. Riders will take off in 15-second intervals.

How will the race be timed and how will results be calculated?
Every rider will either rent, or purchase, a MyLaps Transponder that will be mounted to their fork tube between the triple clamps. The transponder will read when the racer crosses the start and the finish to give them a total time for the test, down to the .001 of a second. At the end of the day, the rider with the least amount of time spent and having completed all of the tests will be the winner.

Is there transfer trail between tests?
No. The start and finish of the test will be very closely located. Finish a test, head back to your truck for a drink or bike maintenance, then come hang out in the staging area with your buddies and wait for your next lap. No transferring, no time keeping, just fun.

Do I have to keep time?
Not in the traditional sense of an old-school time keeping enduro. In the general sense, you’ll need to be ready for your next lap when it’s your turn to go. We’ll let everyone know a general time to be ready based off of rider turnout and test length.

Wow no D36 Hare Scrambles in Upper Ranch anymore
I can remember going there for the Los Gatos Club's Pubic Hare Scrambles in the late 70's with my father. I rode the first 3 or 4 Phantom & all the National Hare Scrambles at upper Ranch.

There's a big difference between the two. HHORA puts on a very nice event for the whole family. They gear the trail so that everyone makes it around without much trouble. A true HS will not be Family Friendly. I've seen people cry out at the National HS at the upper ranch on the "C track" & I remember someone from Florida(A level Rider) tried to say we were trying to kill everyone with the step trails

My guess...
The loops will be pretty short, so you can bail before anyone sees you sweat. Or before you think you are gonna die.

Have you ridden Metcalf? It's preety cool, but only 400 acres. Not lethal.
Just do it.

Edit: it is a "Sprint Enduro"; I have never done an enduro, or a sprint enduro, or a motocros, or shit... AFM in the eighties! I'm old. I can do it. Anybody can that is not a couch potatoe (sic).

I have ridden metcalf and managed to fracture my elbow on a downhill section right when the trail started curving right. It was partially my fault because of target fixation. Having less than 40 hours riding in the past 2 years. I feel that I’m still a noob and it takes me about a good 30-45 min riding warmup to get comfortable. I just don’t ride enough to just jump on a dirtbike and comfortably ride like a bat out of hell.

I'm tempted to try it, I know Metcalf very well but I doubt I will be competitive, I'm confident I can clear the stages on my KLX140 just not fast =P
