2 classes, with different tracks. Each racer gets 3 timed runs, lowest overall time wins.
- Misdemeanour - all runs of a slightly easier nature
- Felony - all runs on more technical tracks
Only placings from the Felony class will count towards the overall points standings for the Wellington Enduro Series.
At the end of each run, there will be an non-timed liaison stage back up Conviction to the start of the course. No shuttles. You can ride, push, crawl or carry to the top, but you will have to go up the single track. Using a private shuttle, or using any other means to get to the start line at the top of the hill is an instant DSQ.
No practice runs on the day.
There are on the day entries, but you must be registered before 9:30am and bring exact change in cash only. On the day entries are $40.

Sufferfest Hill Climb
Your race fee also includes entry to the Sufferfest Hill Climb. Note competing in this event is optional.
The Sufferfest Hill Climb is for the truly insane. The race starts at the bottom of Jail Brake and heads all the way up. There will be no re routing around obstacles.
NO Practising the Hill Climb before the event. Practising Hill Climbs on Jail Brake before the event is an instant DSQ.
We will hold a practice session in the morning before the enduro starts.
Compete in both the enduro and hill climb and you will receive points towards the King and Queen Of The Hill Challenge.
You must use the same bike for all 2 events.
Points will be awarded for placing in each of the 2 events (in the case of there being a tie between someone racing Misdemeanour and Felony class, Felony trumps Misdemeanour for points). To reduce the chance of someone sandbagging (*cough* Bushlove), everyone who races and completes the Felony course will earn an automatic 10 points.
