Only 1 week, 3 days, 12 hours, 39 minutes until this event starts!
Ok here it is...THE BIKE IND SUCKER PUNCH EXTREME ENDURO is back....
The SUCKER PUNCH is now a well established, respected and Iconic Extreme Enduro in its own right and understandably so..
Steve Ireland welcomes BIKE IND back as the title sponsor and Rider Bib's Partner.... 2018 edition of the BIG EVENT The Event will start at 10am sharp.... all the classes on Individual start lines ...(full choice of classes) 5 Laps = Gold / 4 Laps = Silver / 3 Lap = Bronze. Riders on 1 & 2 laps will be deemed finishers but not in the Gold/silver / bronze categories.
THERE IS A 4 .5HR CUT OFF POINT WHERE RIDERS MUST FINISH BY. 2:00PM - RESULT WILL STAND FOR RIDERS AT THE POINT they are at (lap number). As normal for the SUCKER PUNCH The lap will be approx 11 miles in length, "only 11 miles you say?", Well let us tell you that in that 11 miles will be a series of sections and challenges that will take all of a riders commitment, skill, strength and determination along with probably help from another rider in some of the places. Spectators are not catered for out on the going in this event and will probably not be present out on the course in too many places, (The marshals will not be helping either, only for any rider injuries.) so therefore some riders only help will come from another rider.
The terrain will have no manmade obstacles, just pure natural going, climbs, drops, stream crossings, boggy bits, slow speed technical, gnarly felled areas and fast fire roads.
NEW FOR THE 2018 EDITION: THE TWIST FOR 2018 ....ONCE THE LEADING RIDER ENTERS THE FINAL LAP SOME EXTRA SPICY EXTREME ENDURO SECTIONS WILL BE THROWN INTO THE LAP. 3 OR 4 BRAND NEW BITS OF TERRAIN THAT WILL ACT AS THE "SUCKER PUNCH" FOR THE RIDERS AS THEY THINK THE FINISH LINE IS IN SITE ON THEIR LAST LAP ....Positions can change , failures and success's will happen... Nothing is taken as read!!
MEDIA The Sucker Punch will again have high level social media and natioanl website coverage with reports / pics and film.
SPECTATORS Unlike otherSucker Punch Extremes when there were no spectators, WOR will be doing their best to accomodate a small number of spectators for this event and more details will be announced soon, but expect some old nantmawr type rules of filling a car and be prepared to walk to the proposed spectator areas. If WOR can get Spectators in they will, if not then so be it.
