MARCH 11th | 8:30am
The first ever “SUPER ENDURO” event because it is super fast and super fun. Day 3 of the Cactus Cup will be a combination of timed downhill segments across McDowell Mountain Park. These segments are linked by neutral sections. The neutral sections are not timed, however they have a time-limit in which to arrive at next segment start. The Super Enduro combines the best downhill abilities but also plays to the best fitness abilities in order to reach Segment starts. Winners will be determined by fastest combined time from all 3 segments.
*Course still pending final land manager approval*
SEGMENT ONE – MARCUS LANDSLIDE
About 500,000 years ago, a portion of the eastern summit of the McDowell Mountains suddenly collapsed into a catastrophic rock avalanche. The chaotic mix of granite rock, vegetation and soil flowed eastward for about 1 mile before coming to rest. Segment one is the 1.1 miles along the landslide.
SEGMENT TWO – SCENIC TRAIL
Start at the top of Scenic Trail on the north end. Riders will get the best downhill section of this 1 mile section of trail from the top to the south end. Segment finish at Cinch intersection.
SEGMENT THREE – TECH LOOP
That’s right! The entirety of the tech loop with the official finish line in the main venue.
COURSE MAP – The map below gives overall segment locations within the park. Additional information and maps to follow.
START TIMES – First start will begin at 8:30am on Sunday. All riders will be assigned specific start times well in advance of race weekend for each segment. A link to all times will be published here and pushed to Face Book.
FINISH LINE – All riders will return to the main venue upon completion for results
