|There are two signature sections on the route to test riders technical ability and it is compulsory that Clubman and WOW classes use the alternate routes at these SPLIT sections which are well marked and sign posted.
The race starts with a short 25m section of haulage road before you turn left and enter down into STOMPIE ALLEY through some cut timber with some easy flowing section along a contour and haulage road for about 3 km getting you warmed up for what lies ahead. You will then enter an easy active river section for about 500m and then ride through varied terrain with some downhills where you need to look out for ruts, rocks and logs until you come to a nice rocky hill climb. Riding on top of the crest of the hill, until you come to TRAVISES DOWNHILL where all classes are to find their way carefully as you then travel up STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN where you will meet the 4 way manned checkpoint area. At this checkpoint riders are urged to think carefully, Look carefully and follow the correct route once stamped your card. You will then ride through some amazing up and downs including WHITE ROCK MOUNTAIN, PIMPLIES 1 and PIMPLES 2 before you come to the SPLIT#1 in the route.
At the SPLIT#1 – the MAIN ROUTE continues up CHUCKLES and through the 4 way manned checkpoint again as you rejoin the common piece of route down TRAVISES DOWNHILL AND CONTINUE ON THE LEfT TO WHERE THE TRACKS MERGE AGAIN
At the SPLIT#1 – The alternate route is to the right which is a nice easy flowing riding crossing the rivers a few times before you merge back onto the main route.
The common route then continues for a number KM’s of easy riding until you come to the SPLIT#2 on the route where the alternate route goes left and the main route goes up JARVIS’s hill. It has the name Jarvis for very good reasons so pick your line correctly. After this signature section there is contour roads all the way home. This is a challenging course physically, mentally and with the predicted rain is a true test of your enduro riding skills. Finishing a WFO is an achievement on its own. Good luck and Enjoy
