5.Starting order

The starting order is constructed separately for Race and Hobby competition based on the position in the overall standings of the series of the current season out of pre-registered competitors via online registration. Those who register at the event will be starting after them. If the leading rider of the series is not present at the start of the race, no. 1 starting plate will not be issued. The director of the race can hand out up to 5 wild cards (priority starting number) for which there are starting numbers 11-15 set aside. Participants will start according to this list into the first time stage or transfer. Women in the Hobby competition do not have to respect starting order based on the starting plate.

Further starts into next time stages follow the rule ‘first comes first serves’. The race may begin with a transfer. Riders need to be ready for the start with one foot on the ground, standing on the pedals is not allowed.

6. The track and safety

6.1 The Enduro track is composed of several time stages and transfers. The time stages are mostly downhill with an uphill no longer than 15% of the total distance of that time stage. The track is not extremely difficult.
6.2 The transfers are there to move the racers to the next time stage from the area of finish. Competitors may move in groups but without a help of others. The time limit for the whole competition is set on Saturday before the race and is counted since the start into the first time stage. Time beyond this limit is added to the sum of all the times out of each time stage. The race director may shift the limit by 15 minutes if more than 20% of people do not make it in time.
6.3 There will be a mechanical depot in the area of the event by Mavic which can be used for remote help.
6.4 The track is highlighted with a marking tape, black and yellow signs and gates with the help of triangles pointing at each other. The marking will be done by 11am on Saturday so that it is possible to try it out in advance.
6.5 In case of higher power influence the organizer can end the race prematurely. The results are then composed out of the time stages that everyone finished except for those who ended their race for other reasons.
6.6 Medical service is available only on the race day.

7. Breach of conduct

7.1 The participants break the rules when:
- The registration form is incomplete or wrong
- The competitor cuts short their race or does not pass through any of the gate or when they use a remote help from other that when provided in the yellow Mavic tent during both the time stage or the transfer. The racer is also responsible for keeping themselves within the highlighted track and is also responsible for their mistakes during the race. They must keep inside the neutral line of the trail.
- In case of unsportsmanlike behavior especially towards the officials of the event. Each participant should follow the fair-play rules, behave decently with care and not endanger themselves or others. Where a rider believes another competitor is injured on course, they are obliged to offer first aid and they should alert the next race official/marshal they see. The time stage result of any rider delayed due to voluntarily assisting another rider will be determined by race officials and the time loss might be deducted from the total time.

10. Overall standings of Czech Enduro Series

The organizer of the ongoing sporting events (overall standings) is Kolo pro život, z.s., Na Florenci 1332/23, 110 00 Praha 1, ICO: 03401707
10.1 The principle of the competition is to assign a certain number of points to the competitor in the race by points table.
- Absolute ranking is compiled separately for the contest Race and Hobby. Absolute ranking is determined by adding points (absolute standing points) from four races, therefore only four out of the six races are counted scratching the worst two results from six races.
- Ranking in the category is assembled within the category on the basis of points (category standing points) gained in the category classification and is determined by adding the points from four races, they are therefore counted four of the six races scratching the worst two from six races.
In case of equal score the winner is determined by counting points from all races without eliminating, then the result of the last race in the series.
10.2 Overall team standings
Competition of teams of three within the Czech Enduro Series. A team means a targeted group of competitors who are duly registered with the team-competition, have a common name and his captain. Team registration is introduced exclusively through www.enduroserie.cz. All team members must have their profile in the registration system and must agree to their inclusion in the team. Team captain bases (founding member) with the help of the registration numbers of individual members. Team can be established at any time during the season.
Team must consist of min three and max. five competitors. Team may be composed of riders in all categories and competitions Race and Hobby. List of team members is valid throughout the entire series. Exchanges of riders are not available during the competition. Score may only those riders who are on the team roster on the race day. Points cannot be attributed back. Careful not to be confused with the notion Club ! The club is a wider concept. A competitor may have his home club (eg. In the context of the Czech Cycling Federation) and that may be different to the team within Czech Enduro Series. Competitors may join a team together, even though they are from different clubs. Team concept belongs only to the team- competition Czech Enduro Series.
- Absolute ranking in team-scoring competition based on the principle of sum of points gained by the three competitors with the highest points gained within the category in the specific race . Subsequently counted 4 best score gains a team of six races. Scratching the worst two-point results from six races. Point benefit of individual / team- member team for the competition is given by the sum of points obtained in the absolute ranking and the points obtained in the category.
Example: Competitor placed 50th in the absolute standing of RACE competition and 6th in the category Race Men 40+. They acquire 80 points for the 50th place in the absolute standings of individuals. But they will get 80 + 240 for 6th place in their respective category therefore 320 points in total.
