“Wouldn’t it be great to have another chance to go faster, get that corner right or hit that line you missed?
Punctures and mechanical’s are no longer an end to the race day, Ride with your friends and just have
fun… The Mash Up Format allows it all”
The “Mash Up” format has been universally accepted and wholeheartedly welcomed by riders and the
industry alike with more new and not so new riders taking a step and a step back into a stress-free racing
The 1 day format involves 5 hours of live timing over 3 stages where you can do as many runs as you
like in any order you like and then check your times in the pits! This creates an amazing rider atmosphere
and presence in the pits that other Enduro formats do not have!
We also have an E-bike category which we will push forward even more in 2018 with more E-Bike specific stages.
For 2018 we have a 5 race series planned for the year. In line with the return of the UKGE Nationals, all 5 rounds will count towards the overall series results with the final round compulsory in order to get an overall series ranking.
WGES Mash up Series:
R1: March 4th Afan Glyncorrwyg
R2: March 17th Saturday ! !(Mini Enduro/WGES format to be confirmed) Bike Park Wales
R3: May 20th Afan Bike Park (Bryn Bettws Lodge)
R4: September 9th Eastridge
R5: October 28 th Cwmcarn
All 5 rounds to count for the series overall, final round is compulsory in order to get a ranking overall.
Each round will have 3 stages plus an Ebike stage (where we can!) each one using existing trails albeit in a slightly modified state in some circumstances. The stages will be marked the day before the race so everything is ready to go for race day!
They will be taped and marked like all Gravity Enduro events, with professional timing, marshals and fully trained medics onsite throughout the race day.
Gravity will work for you and against you at these events, as the nature of the stages will demand some pedalling from you to get the most out of them, allowing you to enjoy the gravity assisted parts even more.
The stages for each venue will be released in the week leading up to the event or kept secret until race day depending on venue and stages used.
Any practice outside of the event is purely at your own risk and all normal rules of the trail and rights of way will apply.
Ride sensibly and in control.
Full face helmets and Personal Insurance are recommended but not mandatory.
We look forward to seeing you at the next event
