-Riders will have 3 descents that they need to get to by their individually outlined times. The riders will only be timed for their descents. The ‘race’ is the combined time of the three descents that they ride during the day- lowest time wins. It is up to the racer to make it to their starts on time.

*** NEW*** Specialized Race within a Race:
Specialized is sponsoring a “timed climb” stage during the Euro Enduro. This will be an optional (but highly recommended) stage and will not affect your overall enduro time.
