Race Track

Beach Race

Wednesday, Sept. 26, 2018 – Start 09:00

Sea to Sky kicks off with the 15 minutes + 1 lap “Beach Race” – a motocross-like race with a mass start along the coastline in front of the Hotels of Kemer village. The track has a lot of sand, natural jumps and a long straight at the shore that allows to go flat out to the max! The result of the “Beach Race” determines the starting order for the “Forest Race” stage in the forests and rocks around Kemer.

Forest Race

Thursday, Sept. 27, 2018 – Start 09:00

On race day #2 the riders will be taken on a time trial in the woods behind Kemer to ride some really cool single trails and gravel roads reaching into the foothills of the Tahtali Mountain. About 80% of the track is new and fresh following an ancient hiking path starting at the beach of Kemer! The Forest Race track will be approximately 42km – mostly with a great sea view – and the fastest riders are expected to reach the finish after just under 2 hours. Again, the results of the Forest Race will determine the starting order for the Canyon Race.

Canyon Race

Friday, Sept. 28, 2018 – Start 09:00

On race day #3

Olympos Mountain Race

Saturday, Sept. 29, 2018– Start 09:00

Race day #4 and the main event of Sea to Sky will start right at the beach in Camyuva, a town next to Kemer, and it will take the riders all the way from “Sea to Sky” on Sept. 29, 2018.

After the start the riders will follow a riverbed and dive into spectacular trail rides in the lower Olympos mountain area before they reach the tree line – always facing stones in each possible variations. Again, about 70% of the track is all new so even if you’ve raced Sea to Sky before you’ll will be surprised by even better tracks at Edition 9!

The Gold Medal will be reserved only for the riders who make it to the finish arch on the peak of the Olympos Mountain at an altitude of 2,365m after about 65km. The organizers expect the fastest riders to reach the finish after little more than three hours and a total of abour 30-40 riders to finish the race within the 7 hours limit. There will be some rather technical surprises after the Silver finish that will separate the men from the boys.

The Silver Medal will be handed to riders who are making it all the way to the Silver Finish within the 7 hours of race time.

Those who make it through the riverbed and the first third of the overall track will earn a Bronze Medal. So there will be a great reward and souvenir for the majority of the starters who come prepared and have the skills you need in Extreme Enduro!

Award ceremony and beach, party! Come and see how Extreme Enduro riders party, again … extreme fun!
