    The Eastern States Cup is taking on 4-6 enduro events along with the the usual downhill race schedule, we will be releasing the dates and locations soon for both DH and enduro
    .
    So far we have Killington Vt, Attitash NH and Plattekill NY in line for enduro. Hope to add one or two more venues.

    Schedule should be all set in January and I will make sure it is posted up here.

    Not completely, still working out the details with each venue and course layout. What we would like to see is probably one lift ride either at the start of the day or at the end depending on stages and layout. Possibly 2 lift riders throughout the day, but it is Enduro, so plan to pedal, but not "race" up the hill.

    California Enduro Series

    I know this has been plastered around this site and a few others, but I thought it was worth linking it here.

    I'm pretty jealous with what you guys have going on in the state's. I'm sure it's only a short matter of time before BC gets something up and running....

    Batts,

    I like what I am hearing!

    Minimize the use of lifts. That will make the races interesting. I have ridden a couple of the Super-enduro race courses in Italy when I was visiting my parents a couple of Summers ago and they end up being roughly 20 miles and 4,000-5,000ft of climbing and descending. The races take 4-6 hours to complete and include up to 5 timed stages 6-20 minute long. I find this format really fun because it's a full day on the bike on fun trails, not just waiting around all day for a few minutes of racing or an infinite slog.

    This format is really well suited for our East Coast terrain where we don't have endless vertical as in the Big Mountain Enduro series.

    Are you and ViciousDHer considering venues outside of bike parks? I have a killer course mapped out at Pittsfield State Forest for example that I would be happy to show you in the Spring. Not sure how complex the logistics of running a race there would be.

    Update to Socal

    1/11 Fontana Super D
    1/18 Vail Lake Enduro
    1/25 Fontana Super D
    2/8 Fontana Super D
    2/15 Black Mountain Enduro
    2/22 Fontana Super D

    Enduro typically does not include lift assist since it defeats the purpose of the race and allows for the use of more dedicated DH bikes. Some of the European races use them for a single transfer stage but still have other stages you have to climb.

    Interesting "add-on" enduro: 2013 Breck Epic Race Preview

    Anyone with local knowledge have thoughts on this? Closest we'll get to a Trans-Provence in the US, or just a lame add-on to take advantage of the enduro craze?

    The permit application has been delivered for an Enduro race to be put on by an experienced promoter in the Pisgah National Forest. It's in the hands of the NFS right now.

    June 22 (assuming it all works out).

    Keep an eye on this site for details as soon as they are available:

    I dont think it will be anything like the Trans-Provence... Mostly XC racers attend the Breck Epic, but there are some badass descents in the race.

    KALI Spring Enduro, Weaverville, CA. May 26

    Name:  KaliSpringEndWebLogo.jpg
Views: 1549
Size:  235.0 KB

    As with all events from Team Bigfoot this one is just a bit different. This one is about determining the most all-around rider, with equal emphasis on climbing, descending and speed. Racers must use the same bicycle for all three events.

    Stage #1. Cross Country. 5.5 miles. For this mass start event the course heads out the rear of Trinity High School, drops down the infamous "Cork Screw" and then does a lap of the new 4.7 mile singletrack, "McKenzie Loop."
    Start Times: 10:00 am Expert Pro, 10:01 am Sport, 10.02 am Beginner

    Stage #2. Hill Climb. 3-miles 1,300 feet of elevation gain with an average grade of 8%. This mass start event head up Weaver Bally road, a wide fireroad that's mostly hardpack dirt, but with a few sections of gravel. The start times are spread out my category to give all racers a little time to recover from the Cross Country stage.
    Start Times: 11:00 am Expert Pro,11:10 am Sport,11:20 am Beginner

    Stage #3. Super-D. 8-miles 1,300 feet of elevation drop. The final stage is an individual time trial. After finishing the hill climb riders may take some time to recover before getting lined up for the Super-D. Depending on the number of riders we'll use 30-second or 60-second intervals.



    SUPER ENDURO:To give the toughest racers their own game of
    "Quien es Mas Macho?" we offer the Super Enduro for riders who race Saturday's 6 Hours of Weaverville and the 3 stages of Sunday's Enduro. First place medals will be awarded in all categories based on the combined time of a rider's fastest 2 laps on Saturday plus all 3 stages on Sunday.

    Kali spring enduro prize list

    Our good friends at KALI are kicking down a great prize list. The fastest man and woman in each event will each win a Kali helmet, and in the Super-D in addition to winning a helmet the fastest man and woman will also win a set of Kali knee/shin guards and a set of Kali elbow guards. And to give everyone a chance at the prize bounty we'll hold our usual Team Bigfoot prize raffle --- the better your overall result the more chances you have to win cool stuff from Kali, ODI Grips, Rock N Roll Lube, Bien Padre, Sock Guy & more.

    Sorry Luca, never saw this post?? I wish we had the terrain that Italy and the rest of Europe has, but on the east coast we will be hard pressed to get long runs, I hope we can push 10 minutes on some stages, but others might only be 2-4 minutes. Really hard to say until we get the stages set up. I am hoping that racers will be out for at least 4 hours. Enduro should be part race, part adventure. I also do not want to have riders finishing up at 5pm and waiting on awards with a long drive home. Hopefully we can get the perfect balance between the two and give everyone a great race/ride experience.
    For this year we are sticking to ski mountain venues, mainly for the logistics of it all (power, parking, facilities etc) but who knows about next year.

    Yeps, we have a championship series and some separate races upcoming spring/summer. More info can be found from our website at Trek Enduro Series 2013 Unfortunately the site is at the moment only in Finnish language, but "in English" page is also upcoming soon.

    But a short summary, 5 events in the official championship series, plus couple smaller separate races, dates and locations following:
    4.5. Warm up -race, Calpis, Hämeenlinna
    25.-26.5. SM1 Messilä, Lahti
    15.-16.6. SM2 Laajavuori, Jyväskylä
    5.-6.7. SM3 Åre, Sweden
    1-2 separate smaller races in July/August
    10.-11.8. SM4 Ounasvaara, Rovaniemi
    14.-15.9. SM5 Location yet to be decided(couple of strong options available).

    Official races are mostly lift asssisted, with possibly some transit stages that require pedaling. Weekend usually consists of Saturday practice and race on Sunday, starting around 11.00 while lifts start at 09.00 so usually race day practice available too...
    We have plans to try this season some event as two day race or Saturday prologue or similar, idea anyway to have a bit more "event" fiiling, rather than just-a-race. Not yet locked where this will be tested or if tested at all, but more info will follow when things clear up.

    If more questions, you can ask here or PM me...

    In 2013 we will organize 5 Epic Enduro Weekends under the name 'The Blast'

    The racing isn't super serious, it is more about enjoying awesome riding with old and new friends. The trails however are top notch, as we chose some of the best places to ride in Europe.
    You will be staying together with all riders in a nice accommodation. Meals are included, and with most events you have one uplift a day, with the additional +- 1000hm of pedal powered climbing.

    Dates and locations for 2013 are:

    The Blast #1 28th - 31st March 2013 Ardennes Belgium (sold out)
    The Blast #2 23rd – 26th May 2013 Aosta Valley Italy
    The Blast #3 20th – 23rd June 2013 Vosges France (sold out)
    The Blast #4 18th – 21th July 2013 Koroska, Slovenia
    The Blast #5 24th – 27th October 2013 Liguria Italy

    The Pisgah Enduro is a go. Permits, timing, and all that jazz.

    A well established promoter in the area is putting it on.

    And ignore that date.... it's June 15th.

    Ashland is sick-

    This year will be different from years passed, so be ready for A LOT of riding in one day.. Tons of super fast single track. Mostly just a 5-7% descent where a little pedaling makes a big difference.

    The Moab enduro on May 3-4 is on Mag 7, which is a really fun area. It doesn't look too strenuous, and is at a lower elevation than most enduros in CO/UT, so it would be a great one for someone to get their feet wet.

    You might ask in the AZ forum, it gets a lot more traffic and they tend to be a super helpful bunch. The only one I know of is a social/group ride that one guy puts together every year in Flagstaff. Follow the route, time yourself at each timed section and compare times at the end.

    I'm sure there'll be others if not already, then soon.

    Really?

    I've been thinking about doing the Race but the helmet cam videos of the 2012 course on YouTube look insanely dull considering how much good riding there is in Ashland.

    KRob, I'm planning on heading out to the race. I would like to pre-ride the course next weekend. Is there a local bike shop that might be able to give directions?

    Everything will be ribboned by then but no arrows. Shoot me a pm, I'd be happy to show you around, or at least get you pointed in the right direction.
