Magnetic Island Enduro 2017 overview

Leg 1 – 8km paddle

This is a Triangle Course in the Horsehoe Bay area and the size of the Triangle and positioning of the Buoys can be varied to suit any wind changes and get the best conditions possible. The objective is to offer a protected paddle to harbour the up and coming paddler.

Track towards the Forts Carpark

Leg 2 – 9km Run The run meanders along horse tracks in private property which will also serve part of the Bike Course later in the event. Once past the horse tracks you will climb up towards the Forts Carpark before travelling up the forts tracks and down the other side into Radical Bay. From Radical bay you take a great little rocky single tracks which climbs over a little hill, goes flat for a tad past Balding Bay and then gently descends onto the Horseshoe bay Beach before hitting the transition area

Leg 3 – 16.5km mountain bike 

Enjoy 1 x lap of the Ultra Ride taking in the best of all the riding and only half the pain at 16.5km

This course is a tough physical challenge with a few testing hills and fun descents as well as un-manicured, good old tough, rocky terrain on both the climb and the descents. The addition of some new sections of Private horse riding property will make for some flowy sections to start and finish each lap on (please avoid these sections in any training)

Horseshoe Bay area

Ride through the flats of Horseshoe bay Via the Horse Property, exit the property via a single-track running near the edge of the road and heading up towards the Forts carpark. Once you get in line with the carpark swing right up a steep climb until you descend to the road. Dismount (and safely cross the road) and head into the Telstra track… this section is a pretty steep section with some rough terrain, but it is heaps of fun for those experienced riders to enjoy with the challenge something the less experienced riders should be stoked to get through. After the Gnarly descent it’s a fast downhill surge down the bitumen, where the lungs can be inflated again and the body cooled before heading down Mandalay ave and taking on the pipeline trail.

Riding out Chk C downhill

Riding out from CPC

Once at Horseshoe bay, the trail spits you onto a section of bitumen where you can quickly sneak in a drink or snack before heading towards the Horse tracks and a great winding section of trail makes for heaps of fun…the speed will be dictated by the Flow of rain in the days leading into the race as these sections have a few creek crossings in the wet BUT are bone dry when thee has been no recent rain.The pipeline trail is a rocky tough climb where line choice is very important and momentum is your friend, keep it at all costs to make this easier (New additions for this bit of trail challenge is to ride all the way to CPC). At the pinnacle you will get to the checkpoint C and descend a Fire trail called Savage canyon otherwise known as hell. The section is very prone to erosion and so a series of water bars criss-cross the trails. Sections of these erosion bars can be carefully descended and make for a bit of fun, as the hill gets less steep people will let their brakes off and allow the momentum to take them down the hill towards Horseshoe Bay.
