Changes Made to 2014 Wildwood Rock Extreme Enduro
Changes to the class structure for the 2014 Bulk Nutrients Wildwood Rock Extreme Enduro have been announced by the organiser of this years event that is set to take place on the 22nd and 23rd of Nomvember.

In a release sent out on Monday morning, it has been confirmed that the Women's class has been scrapped in favour of rewarding the lead Female rider home in the Expert, Over 40's and Clubman classes.

"Due to varying level of competitors in this class a decision has been made to discontinue the stand-alone womens class," a statement read. "With competitors showing interest ranging from World Enduro Riders, Australian representatives in International Trials events as well as Clubman Level and Novice riders it is more advantageous to place these riders in a class more appropriate and directly inline with their competitive standings.

"Under the current format every competitor can only nominate one class, so competing in the women‰Ûªs class they would not be eligible for outright positions. In a positive move to promote and increase women competing at Wildwood, an additional $250 will be paid to the 1st woman home in Expert, Over 40 and Clubman.

"The change brings a much better format and they will now enter the race on equal terms with the men, showcasing the strength of the individual women competing in these classes.

In addtion the Trials Class has been removed from the Extreme Enduro category.

"Under the current format a Trials class rider was only eligible for class victory, they are now open to enter all classes with the opportunity to compete for outright positions if entered in Pro Class. Trial riders have shown they are capable of competing at the top level and this brings a welcome change to the existing format.

A new class for Expert riders over the age of 35 has been hadded to the 2014 event.

News has also come through that International riders Alfredo Gomez will have to miss this years event due to conflicting commitments overseas with organisers confident that he will return in 2015.

UK rider Ben Hemingway and German junior trials champion Adrian Guggemos have both been confirmed to race.

In the lead up to this years race three Extreme coaching clinics have been announced for November.

Learn bike set up tips, hone your skills for Enduro and Extreme obstacles, learn new techniques for maximum bike control, speed and balance in technical terrain, all in a controlled environment with German Freestyle Trials and Enduro Rider, Adrian Guggemos and Factory BETA Extreme Team Rider, Ben Hemingway.
