WHAT iS ENDURO?
For all who are familiar with motorsport, explalning enduro is pretty simple. You have spedal stages and transfers. On a speclal stage, you are racing against the clock, while there is no timekeeping during a transfer. At the end of the weekend, all the stäge times are added together and the rider with the lowest overall !ime wins. At a mountain bike enduro_ most of the stages are downhil 1. Some small ramps are part of the game though and max out heart rates!.Transfers are usually made by pedal power, sometimes combined with litt supported ascents. For the race at Petzen, the stats say 50 kilometres distance, approx. 1,500 vertical metres of ascent and around 2,500 vertical metres of descent a day. Once a day the riders will happily enjoy the ride on the Petzen gondola.
BY THE NUMBERS
EWS Petzen-Jamnica is unique in several ways, including the fact that is the first ever race of the series that will take place in two countries – Austria & Slovenia. The project will connect the region even further, with joint efforts to additionally develop the mountain biking scene and tourism in the area.
