Hennessey Cup 2013 September 20, 2013Posted by mtbdrcc in MTBDRCC.
Last night at the committee meeting we made the decision to postpone the planned 4hr DH enduro until late February/Early March. The club has had a very busy schedule in the back half of the year conducting the DH Champs and following it up with XC Sunshine Series. Our committee is looking to plan ahead better for these events to ensure we provide the best possible event, rather than one which would be not to the standard that DRCC would like.
We will be posting up the new date as soon as it is approved by SCRC and we promise a big event to kick off a strong 2014 season.
The DRCC Hennessey Cup is on again in 2013 and the date has been locked in for October 27.
The event format is the same as a typical time-based enduro, but instead of laps, it is ‘runs’ down the Hennessey Hill Downhill course with riders taking transport back to the top of the hill.
With the trend of Gravity Enduro racing taking hold, the club is expecting a strong interest in this years event with the winner’s purse worth $1,000.
More details coming shortly.
