Most en­duros have at least one day of prac­tice. If you are able, prac­tise the tracks in ad­vance so you can have a look at each stage. It might make you a lit­tle bit tired for race day, but hav­ing a slight idea of where you are go­ing will make a huge dif­fer­ence, which will serve you more than be­ing 100 per cent fresh. Record­ing your ride with an ac­tion cam­era is a great way to re­view the race stages more than once with­out hav­ing to ride them all day. Watch­ing each stage a few times will re­fresh your me­mory of those key ar­eas on the stages that could be worth lots of time and might re­veal a few good lines to smooth out some rough sec­tions.

These five tips will help your day go a lit­tle smoother but the most im­por­tant thing to do is have fun and en­joy it. The best thing is that you are out in the woods with a bunch of other like-minded peo­ple rid­ing your bikes and shred­ding trails. Happy days!
