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.
If you are an experienced rider, who loves riding and isn’t too serious about racing, The Blast is something you don’t wanna miss!
