Triple Crown Enduro
The original Rotorua enduro, the one and the only, the Triple Crown. If you know, you know.
Chip butties - Classic
The Triple Crown has a history as the longest standing enduro race in NZ. It was enduro before the sport of enduro developed. The Triple Crown is a fairly relaxed race that possibly doubles as the unofficial Club champs.
The Triple Crown has a few set guidelines:
- It must be in winter
- It must be rad
- It must be followed up with chip butties.
Primarily the trails that get raced are grade 4/5 so it is recommended that you are confident on these kinds of trails.
Aside from the actual crowns for fastest male and female, this event has a trophy remembering Paddy Avery's favourite track, Hot Cross Buns. So there's a heads up on one of the three race trails!
Spirit of Enduro – awarded at Triple Crown, this award embodies the spirit of riding bikes. A good deed done. Sportsmanship. All round GC who loves riding their bike. 2021 was award to Sam Shaw for throwing a back flip on the step up at the bottom of the DH trail!
