All stops of the 2017 Benduro Series will entail 2 days of racing, 2 nights of camping and partying with live music and local food. Due to the high mileage, technical terrain, and risk factors of 2017 Benduro courses, race categories have been reduced to just Pro and Open, with age brackets for Open Men. From here on out, competing in Benduro will require an elite level of both technical skill, and fitness. We hope to draw more participants from the endurance, epic, gravel grinder and adventure crowds, in addition to our current community of gravity racers.
All venues will be open to the general public and offer alternative trails to ride during races and great on-trail spectating opportunities. We again look forward to family, friends, and watching on course and mingling in the main staging area and at the parties. This year spectator passes will be available and include event t-shirt, swag bags, camping and dinners. We hope to have just as many spectators as racers, if not more.
Benduro has many volunteer opportunities for 2017. If you would like to assist with course marking, trail maintenance, course marshaling, on-site registration, timing assistance, emergency medical services, radio operators, photography, videography, or another fun task please contact them via the website link. All volunteers will receive a free spectator pass, including an event t-shirt, swag bag, camping and dinner(s).
