This series will be pre-registration only and there will be no day of registration. The last day to register is October 1st by noon. All registered series participants will receive a custom jersey.
The first 50 registered participants will receive a WooHoo at Waid custom jersey for free.
NOTE: Participants have the option to register for the series and compete in both races or register for either race individually.
The series kicks off on Saturday, October 2 with the WooHoo at Waid Park Sprint Enduro in Franklin County. You can expect five stages, which utilize the newest and most progressive features in the Waid Park trail network.
A medium travel trail bike or maybe even a beefed up XC race bike will be fastest across these stages. Be ready for rock gardens, man-made jumps and sections with fast back-to-back corners, and yes, quite a bit of sprinting if you want to win!
Expect 7-10 minutes of accumulated time. All registered riders will receive a WooHoo logo shirt.
Rider check-in will be held from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. and the race starts at 10:00 a.m.
Buddy's BBQ will be onsite for race day lunch.
Stages 1-4 will showcase the classic and technical descents of Carvins Cove in Roanoke, where riders can expect 800+ feet of elevation between stages. It's a unique opportunity to race enduro in the 2nd largest municipal park in the country and it's vast network of 60+ miles of trails.
Stage 5 will be the Queen Stage, which will have racers plummet down Mill Mountain towards Downtown Roanoke.
Expect 12-15 minutes of accumulated time.
The race will be chip timed by Zone 4 Timing with no start order. You can hang out with your buddies and transfer at your own pace. The average rider will finish in approximately four hours.
