Saturday Morning

[color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif][background=rgb(252, 252, 252)]The Saturday trail ride will be approx. 170 km of back roads and trails and will start before the enduro competitors have left. This is an aggressive ride and all bikes need to be blue plate legal and equipped with aggressive tires. There will be road bypasses around the most aggressive sections. As with all trail rides this terrain is considered to be from a level 3-5 on the difficulty scale. The enduro will spend more time in the 5 then we will. The course is laid out on GPS, so you must either have your own or travel with others who have one. If you would like to rent a GPS for the ride, please register early and contact us by email. Rentals are given out on a first come first served basis. We will get you back to Gooderham in time to watch the enduro cross. As with all Rally Connex rides, there will be sweep riders and support staff to follow and assist if required. Gas will be from local gas bars, with no more than 90 km between stops[/background][/font][/color]

Saturday Afternoon and Evening

[color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif][background=rgb(252, 252, 252)]There will be an enduro cross (by Cliffshore Adventures) special test at the start/finish area at the back of the Community Centre grounds. Many unusual objects and obstacles within the course will challenge the competitors. Pro class riders will compete at the end of day 1& 2, five riders at a time, for four laps. Expert class riders will compete under the same format at the end of Day 2. All classes will do 1 timed lap of the Endurocross course half way through Saturday’s ride. This is an excellent spectator spot that cannot be missed.[/background][/font][/color]
[color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif][background=rgb(252, 252, 252)]In addition to the Vintage Class in the enduro, there will be a Vintage Enduro Bike Show & Shine. Awards will be presented at Saturday’s dinner. Bikes must be on display Saturday afternoon at the start/finish area. There are no fees to enter the Show & Shine. There will also be a tire change contest on Saturday sponsored by Machine Racing. A set of tires will be awarded to the fastest Pro rider and the fastest Amateur rider. Participation is optional.[/background][/font][/color]

Sunday Dual Sport & Spectator Tour

[color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif][background=rgb(252, 252, 252)]The Sunday tour is the tour to take if you want to see some extraordinary spectator points of the Corduroy enduro competition. You will also have the chance to brave the infamous tunnel. [/background][/font][/color]
[color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif][background=rgb(252, 252, 252)]At approximately 180 km in length, this tour will follow the enduro throughout the day. We will actually be riding some of the route (untimed sections) along with the competitors. You will also have the chance to ride some of the difficult sections if you choose (proper bike setup and skills required). We will leave Sunday morning, just ahead of the enduro competitors. We have to get ahead of the enduro riders so that we have a good viewing spot at the first special test area. We will then be leaping ahead of the riders to get to the next spectator area before they come out of the woods at the next special test.[/background][/font][/color]
[color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif][background=rgb(252, 252, 252)]We do this several times during the day. We will give you a route card that will give you advance notice of when you should be at the next viewing area. All of the areas are within the gps routes. As such, none of the routes can be loaded onto GPS’s until Saturday night (top secret until then).[/background][/font][/color]
