    So plenty of footage out there of Pol Tarres swinging off the T7 and coming in 20th within Bronze class....
    What is the difference between Bronze, Silver and Gold classes? Had a quick google but couldn't find anything so is anyone able to breakdown exactly what the classes are please?

    page is gone from the original site, but here you go:
    https://web.archive.org/web/2021012....com/for-competitors/picking-the-right-class/

    The summary:
    • Gold means "IMPOSSIBLE to ride" (unless you are a god of Extreme Enduro), worldwide there are only about 50 riders who are able to finish the Gold class.

    Cheers @saltyD.

    Gives more context to just how good a ride it was.

    BRONZE

    • Bronze is our “mainstream” and most popular class - where relatively good competitors are starting to become forged into hard enduro elite material.
    • For better competitors, the Bronze class is manageable and fast - but still challenging. For the less experienced candidates - especially those coming from “flatland” enduro habitats, this is where you meet Red Bull Romaniacs “pain”, “tragedy” and “drama”! while riding.
    • For the Bronze class, solid enduro riding and technical skills are needed.
    • A good enduro racing experience and with decent results is recommended.
    • You should have trained hard to achieve peak physical fitness, mental stability, ability to deal with pain and endurance.
    • You should be able to quickly recover a fluent riding style after dragging your bike though sections that you have never considered riding before.

    That is the T7 I would buy.






    Now only if they can slip another 30hp in there it would be perfect.
