Enduro Racing defined by USA Cycling:
The newest form of mountain biking, enduro is like multiple Super D runs, linking technical downhill trails with flat and uphill sections typically found at a cross-country race. Races have more than one stage, and oftentimes riders must climb fireroads or trails to reach later stages. In enduro events, only the downhill sections are timed. A rider's stage times added together to create an overall time. Competitors typically choose bikes that allow for the bike-handling capabilities required of a downhill racer, but also don't prohibit sustained climbing. (a) Mountain Bike Enduros are extended timed descents or multiple timed descents in charge to replace.
single or multiple stages over one or more days. (b) When multiple timed descents are used in a given day, the timed sections will be connected by transition sections that are not timed. Riders can ride, shuttle, or take a chair lift to the start of the next section as determined by the Race Director and described in the technical manual for the event. (c) While transition sections are not timed, penalties will be assessed if riders miss their start times at the beginning of the next timed section. (d) A technical manual should be produced that defines how the event will be scored, either by time or omnium. All stages must be completed to be eligible for a placing.
