Event Series Event Series: Ozark Enduro Lite

Ozark Enduro Lite Race 1 Centennial Park, Fayetteville

June 16 @ 7:00 am - 5:00 pm

Ozark Enduro Lite
NWACC - Trail Tech

Welcome to the Ozark Enduro Lite Series produced by Arkansas Race Solutions. Our mission is to create a fun, welcoming, all-inclusive race environment. Bringing “Gravity to All”, our races will be focused on beginner to intermediate level enduro with a mix of fun and feisty designed to challenge more advanced riders for speed while allowing new to enduro or less advanced riders to test the waters of gravity sports. This is a 3 race summer series consisting of 6-8 segments depending on the venue. The course will be set up for Saturday morning pre-ride with race days being Sunday morning. The goal is to finish up racing in time to beat the heat. On race day, you can expect tunes being played by OZ Underground and food trucks on site for refueling. Don’t want to race but still want to be a part of race day? We rely heavily on volunteers and can place you in the middle of the action marshaling the race segments.

Curious about Enduro Mountain Bike Racing? Not sure how an Enduro race works? Let us help you get your feet wet with the Ozark Enduro LITE Series. A short summer series of 3 beginner friendly enduro races. All rider abilities are welcome but the Ozark Enduro Lite Series is aimed at introducing new folks to the awesome sport of Enduro racing.

What is Enduro Racing? Enduro racing is primarily downhill timed segments, ranging anywhere from just less than a minute per stage to up to 5-6 minutes that may require some pedaling. A typical Ozark Enduro Lite race will consist of 5-7 downhill segments. Your time will start when you enter the top of a segment and will end when you reach the bottom of that segment. There will be connecting routes to transition between each segment that will not be timed. Only the segments are timed. Riders often ride with groups and make new friends while enjoying the trails during the transfers. After completing all the downhill segments, your total time will be compared with the times of other riders to see how you did.

What Equipment do I need? You will be required to have a fully functional mountain bike with off-road tires and a proper, certified helmet. Full face helmets are recommended but not mandatory. Other recommended items are gloves, eye protection, knee pads, elbow pads. We also strongly encourage carrying the necessary items for minor bike repair such as tire plugs, tubes, CO2, spare chain links. Not sure what type of bike you need? Nearly any type will work, hard tail (no rear suspension) or full suspension xc to enduro or trail bikes.

How long are the races? There will be aid stations, however, it is important to carry enough water and nutrition to last throughout the race. Typical durations will be anywhere from 2-4 hours depending on the course and each rider’s ability. You should be capable of riding 8 to 10 miles and climbing up 1000 feet of NWA green and blue trails.

How do I know the course? We will release the course maps on our website and social media for each venue. The courses will be marked with course arrows and signs to help you navigate. In addition you can download the course maps into your GPS device if you have one, but not required. Since we release the course well in advance of the race you are free to pre ride but the course will not be fully marked until Saturday the day before the race.

None of these races would be possible without volunteers. Volunteer help will be needed at every race, and we would love to make you a part of our event and give you some cool swag. There will be multiple volunteer opportunities such as helping at an aid station, course marshaling, and race setup and tear down. Click HERE to learn more.
