Enduros and other competitive events
Trail bike rallies are ideal for the first time competitor as well as the more experienced, with a reduced distance beginners class. The lap is long distance (about 40 miles) with short amounts of technical going, and are usually run over 6 hours. Hare and hounds use shorter laps (3 to 15 miles typically) and are a shorter day’s riding, 3 or 4 hours, but are more demanding in terrain.
