    Sounds like the "promoting" part has stream -- it would be cool to see more 2 wheeled stuff in AZ FOR sure!

    Yes and yes. We need some real and legit courses though. If a new legit trail can be created I'm all for a Private Reserve challenge.

    X2...most enduro's are still too DH oriented imo. Yeah you have to climb to your downhill timed section, but there's no rush.

    How about a proper XC/enduro race that includes some of the DH trails on Elden? I can think of a good 25-30 mile loop with about 5500' feet of gain that has everything. You could still do stages or first one to the finish.

    Enduro format would be awesome. So would a super-D. How about Mt Elden in the summer and SoMo in the winter? I think an Enduro or Super D might have more cross appeal then a pure downhill for those of us that don't have a full on DH bike.

    I checked out some enduro competition vids and they look like a hoot (okay just about all mountain bike clips look awesome). Anyway, seems like a cool mix of peddle and descent. Kinda like what a lot of folks may already do now -- just without the competitive part. There are the strava folks but this is different.

    Yes, more DH would be nice (ans super D too). Sucks driving for hours and hours to a race in another state

    Yep. It's cool to hit other races out of state, but too costly to do it more than a few times a year. An Enduro in prescott of Flag or anywhere in the summer with trees in this state would be awesome. As would a DH race. motomutts-thanks for taking an interest in getting something going.

    I think an Enduro would be fun. I like the climb as much as the downhill, especially the technical climb. Test sections with transfers would be fun.

    Good luck to you Kyle.
