SEER Rules & Regulations 2022

The 2022 SEER Hard Enduro Series is open to all, with each race being a stand-alone event and forming part of the overall race series.

If you participate in any of our 2022 races, you will automatically be entered into the annual series standings for your class. Your series ranking is classified from your best four results.


2022 SEER Series Rules

  1. SEER Series: A season-long race series where you accumulate points per place on each race. This is a best four out of five series.
  2. Class ranking and Overall ranking: The results of an individual class at each of our races will count towards the series class ranking. The series overall ranking will include the results of the Gold and Silver classes, since they share the same course.
  3. Correct spelling: Racer names have to be spelled the same across all races in the series (eg. Thomas Blair and Tommy Blair will not be matched).
  4. Class must match: To be included in the ranking, of the entire series, the race class (eg. Bronze 16-34y) and names must match across the series.
  5. Can I switch classes? Please select your class based on your skill level carefully. Once the series starts, you can’t switch series classes for scoring purposes. For example, if you signed up for Silver points, your annual points ranking is based on your results in Silver, even if you choose to race the Bronze loop at one of the other races. If you want to be included in the annual scoring, you can NOT switch classes. If you simply want to come and do not care about an annual ranking, YES, you can switch and race a different class.   
  6. How many best results are counted? Only your best four results will be counted towards the total points.
  7. Is there a series fee? There is no series fee to be include in the series ranking.
  8. Who will be included? Any racer who has participated at least in one 2022 SEER race is listed with points in the series standings.
  9. Minimum number of race results for racer to be included in ranking? One race
  10. Who will be excluded? Nobody. If a competitor is only competing in a single SEER race, their points will still be included in the points calculations.
  11. How many points do I get each race? Points range from 1-40 for the top 30 racers for each class. Please find the table with our points for each place below.

SEER is moving away from offering a membership and a series ranking for registered members only. Instead we have a new annual series ranking for all riders who race with us in 2022.

The Iron class is perfect for novice hard enduro racers and those who want to give our races a try. You will be on the same course as the Bronze riders, but scored with similar participants.

How to pick the right class?

Select the right class, according to your

-) hard enduro riding technique ability, and

This will make sure you are up against riders of the same level. It also might be the difference between reaching several checkpoints or having to quit early.

2022 SEER Race Regulations

GENERAL COURSE DESCRIPTION

Each event will have their own unique features but they will have a lot of things in common which will be creek beds, hill climbs and rock gardens. Be sure that your bike and body are protected and ready for the challenge. The course length will vary from 5-10 miles but do not focus so much on the mileage but rather how long you will be on the bike. Count on 3-5 hours. We will be posting more info on each event as they are coming up so check our website for specifics on each race. We are partnering with some established events and we will link their info on our site but be sure to check with them on the specifics of their race.

DIFFERENT LINES

At all events we will have splits between a Gold/ Silver and Bronze/ Iron line. If you enter either one of these classes you will be challenged. Don’t take it lightly, have your bike and body prepared. The line for Bronze/ Iron riders will still be challenging but will by pass some of the more extreme obstacles. If this is your first extreme event, the Iron class is a good place to start.
