The Black Beauty Sprints is a hard enduro event with five separate races on the same track (each race will take around 25 minutes for the average rider). The fastest accumulated race times (with your worst time eliminated) will decide the overall winners in each class. The event will be electronically timed with transponders. Each race will have 5 riders set off at 30 second increments. More information about race structure will be sent with the final instructions prior to the event.
