Experts Ė This is for riders that like hard Enduro
riding with steep up and down hills, sometimes having to push and
lift your bike over obstacles. Your physical fitness, mental stability
and ability to deal with pain should be excellent. You have to keep
moving at a good pace to complete the day with no rests except for the
designated service points. This is equivalent to Romania Silver or Bronze
and in some sections Gold.
Clubman - You like riding good Enduro trails
and have some Enduro racing experience with solid Enduro riding and
technical skills. Your physical fitness, mental stability and ability to
deal with pain should have been tested before. You should be able to
quickly recover a fluent riding style after dragging your bike though
sections that you have never considered riding before. Riding pace is a
little slower than Gold, but you still got to keep moving. This is
equivalent to Romania Bronze or Iron and in some sections Silver.
