ENDURO

SUNDAY | MARCH 10TH

ENDURO – Part Group Ride, Part Race!

The Enduro is designed to be a fun way to end your weekend of racing.  Works like a group ride with your friends or family.  Only the 3 designated downhill sections are timed the rest is a social-fest. *New for 2024* You choose your start window! Pick your time and start with your friends.  Start times only apply to Segment 1: top of Bluff and Pemberton. Riders will complete Segments 2 and 3 upon arrival.  Each segment is linked by neutral sections for a total of a 15 mile ride. The neutral sections are not timed. Winners will be determined by fastest combined time from all 3 timed segments.

Note – This is a cross country style Enduro course. The downhill segments are not technical. Expect kitty litter corners and smooth, fast descents.

SEGMENT ONE – BLUFF TRAIL

Start at Pemberton / Bluff intersection: This section of trail is fast, smooth singletrack, with a slight grade downhill and a few twisty turns.  Riders will be riding along up on top of ridges and finish at the junction of Bluff and Granite – ride thru Stoneman Wash!
Segment one is 2 miles.  GPX

SEGMENT TWO – SCENIC TRAIL

Start at the top of Scenic Trail on the north end.  This section has tighter single track and a few more rocks.  Riders will get the best downhill out of this 1 mile section of trail from the top to bottom of the south end. The segment ends just before the intersection of Scenic and Cinch (little shorter in 2021).
Segment two is 1 mile.  GPX

SEGMENT THREE – TECH LOOP

Start at the top of T-Bone Ridge – riders will descend down the FRONT side of the Tech loop. That’s right, the side facing the parking lot, which means all your fans can watch from the shade! Pop out at the Tech loop entrance into the main venue and roll to the official finish line. This final segment starts up high, has tight turns and consequences.
Segment three is less than 1 mile.   GPX

COURSE MAP – The map below shows the race stages in blue. These are the timed segments that you must complete to finish the race. The transition/neutral sections are in green. Transition sections are not timed and you do not have to follow exactly, they are only suggestions on how to reach each segment’s starting line.
