Ride with the Locals – The Blast


The Blast is a great combination between an Enduro race and a holiday. During 2,5 days of riding awesome trails you come across 8 timed specials, where you can show your speed and skills. The groupsize is limited to 20 – 30 people, and you all stay in the same accommodation (included in the price). Small groups mean better trails, less waiting and a more relaxed atmoshpere. The racing part is not to be taken too seriously, it’s not a worldcup. Timing is done ghetto style, with stopwatches and a finishline drawn in the dirt, the trails however are pretty hardcore and not for beginners. At The Blast events enduro is interpreted as a ‘no practice, 90% DH timed’ discipline in which riders pedal their way up to the top. On some events one uplift per day is provided.
