I have one correction to add.....

If you are hot coming into a check, you MUST maintain forward motion, but you can dab your foot/feet.

That rule change bums me out. I like watching trials on a dirt bike.

My first enduro is this weekend...


This thread has given me a few highlights. I've got my chart holder and watch ready to go. I've got some major butterflies. The race is the ADR National Enduro at Forest Hill, LA. http://acadianadirtriders.org/index.htm

Supposed to be good fun. I'm going to try to do a bit of time keeping... but mostly just going to try and hang on and not kill myself..

There is a crazy "Log Jam" section...


And a section that has a pretty steep hill climb... looks kind of sketchy but doable...









I've just never done anything like that.

Luck.

I don't know for sure, but that log sections might only be for the A/B riders, not for the C class. when I was there a couple of years ago the logs were not a part of the course. the vid doesn't really show it but it looks like there's a cheater log in front of the big log to help get the front tire up and over? let us know how your first enduro goes! we want a ride report!

I'm back! Owwwww iiiii hurrrrrrrttttttttttttttttttt.

As of when I pulled in I was 6 of 9 I checked again when I picked up my gas can, I was 5/9. Was a good ride, only one guy got hurt.

I was C class 4stroke 74E. I ended up passing all of the E riders to 68 (balls to the wall type of race) and I only wrecked twice, both times I spun out on some huge roots and just laid the bike down (hands never came off the bar).

GREAT time, but I hurt! Pics will be in the XR400 thread.


OH and the log jam and hill climb were both not on the C course.... THANK DOG!

Folks may also want to refer to some excellent articles written by Paul Clipper on the subject posted up on my site.

Check it out at:

www.motorally.ca and then follow the links to the TSD2000 and Timekeeping.

Could be a good supplement to what you write Ned.
thanks Neduro and Flanny for the always good jobs posted.
the links do not open though.
Any suggestion ?
what about starting a tread about the cheapest possible Enduro racing season ?

well that link is more than 7 years old. it is not that it is broke. looks like since then the domain has been re-released into the wild. it is currently available for purchase if you or others are interested. i would like to point out that it could either be read as Motor Ally or as the previous owner it turns out was using it Moto Rally. two names for the price of one. i do register and host domains, as well as create websites so i will give myself a little plug. i can get you a website with 2 names for the price of one. PM for further details.

Not exactly about time keeping, but my club has a pretty good first-timers guide on our site.

Eh?

Can someone interpret these results? It was a start control format, and I was row 26 C on the Yamaha at the bottom of each.

I'm still having trouble.

I understand it but hard to explain here, but here goes.
Check 1 which was a "Known Control" or a start you were two minutes late to so lose two points (bad way to lose them)Guessing you were late to the line.
You then road to the next "Known" which was a start and were on time. The "checkout" for the section was what is known as an Emergency check and you were 6 minutes and 18 seconds late.The first number is the number of minutes late the number after the "/" is the number of seconds late based on the 30 second mark of the minute being a zero. So you arrived at 6:38 late.
Zeroed the next check-in and then lost 22 minutes in the section and so on. Your final score was a 204/6301. This means over the day you were 204 minutes late as a total for all sections. The second number is the number of seconds late and is only used as a tie breaker. 34b and 40b needed to use the tie breaker.
Hope that made sense, and good on you for finishing and enduro.

Thanks for the info, RichBeBe! This was my first enduro, it was pretty tough for me. Does it give any info as to the amount of time that I was riding? The event started at 8:00 am, or 8:26 for me.

No the times are only the times you were behind the scheduled times.
