Racers registered on the spot will always receive a higher starting number. Organizer of the race has the right to award maximum of 10 wild cards (priority starting number). In the first transfer, competitors will start based on their starting numbers, but in reverse order, i.e. the highest starting number will go first and number 1 will go last. There will be a 10-minute gap between the categories E-bike, Hobby and Race. At the start line, each biker needs to let his/her chip beep in order to be able to start the race.

Prize money will be paid in the amount of 100 €, 70 € and 40 € in categories Race Men Elite, Race Men U21 and Race Women.
Race track and safety:
Enduro track consists of several so-called STs (speed tests) and transfers. STs are mainly downhill with a shorter section of elevation or flat passages.
Transfers are used in order to move racers from the final part of a ST to the start part of another ST. There will be a time limit set for the race, which can change on the day of the race depending on the weather or current conditions at BikeFest. News in this year’s event is race timekeeping thanks to which will the whole race be more comfortable for the racers and there will be no need to stop at the finish line!
Starting into the speed tests will happen under supervision of starting judges and bikers will need to respect their instructions.
Deposit for the chip is 30 €, which the competitor gets back after the chip is returned after arrival into the finish line.
There will be refreshment stations on the track available for the racers.
The track is marked with marking tape and directional signs. Final track will be ready for training on Friday 28th of August from 11:00 am. Training on the race track is possible on Friday starting at 11:00 am at your own risk. There will be no medical assistance available during the training. Medical service is provided only during the main race.
In case of circumstances beyond control, the organizer has the right to terminate the race prematurely. To determine the ranking, only those STs will be counted which were finished by all starting racers, excluding those racers who didn’t finish the race for other reasons.
In case that a person under 18 years of age starts at the event, a legal representative must be present at the registration to sign a declaration of responsibility on the spot.
