For Beginners - what to expect:

  • If you are new to the sport, the FAQ may be useful.
  • Arrive around 9am, we have a riders' briefing at 9:30 and start at 10am.  You will need time to kit up, warm up yourself and the bike, deal with any issues like the bike not starting, and more.
  • The beginners' line is called "clubman", and is set so that it is safe and does not require commitment.
  • The first lap is done together, because we all walk the section before riding it.  During the walk we explain the various lines and options, adjust obstacles if they are too difficult or dangerous, and plan our strategies.
  • At the end of each section is a sheet where you will enter your score.
  • You will need a helmet, gloves, pants and boots.  A t-shirt is fine, though elbow-guards and knee-guards if you have them are a good idea.  One or two people wear body armour.
  • Remember your entry fee.
