    EnduroRama All Mountain TimeTrial

    The First Annual EnduroRama All-Mountain Time Trial Series


    June 10, 2012: Allamuchy State Park (Allamuchy, NJ), with Specialized bicycles demo day June 9, 2012
    July 22, 2012: Walking Purchase Park (a.k.a. Salisbury) (Bethlehem, PA), with Specialized bicycles demo day on same day


    JORBA and VMB are excited about presenting an event that brings together riders from the various disciplines of mountain biking (Cross Country, Downhill, Trail Riding) in a semi-competitive event as a way to promote a sense of community. Of equal importance is the concept of an event that gathers riders of various abilities, from expert racers to friends looking to push each other, in a laid-back, fun environment. The overall vibe of the event will be similar to the weekend group rides while focusing on more technical sections of trails (typically excluded in mass start events), and riders meeting at the beginning and end of each “special” section. Each “transport” stage will allow participants to relax and ride/socialize with friends (existing and new) while getting ready for the next challenging “special” stage. All participants will complete the event at the start/finish area, have a bite to eat (included in entry fee), hang out and take part in the schwag raffle. Trophies for the top three participants for overall men and women’s classes will be awarded, with the top man and woman being crowned King and Queen of Allamuchy and Salisbury!!!

    All proceeds from both events will go back into supporting the trails!

    As part of the Allamuchy event, JORBA will be accepting donations of any non-perishable food items at the event to benefit the local community food banks.

    Both JORBA and VMB are 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations.

    Does Allamuchy actually have enough downhill terrain for Enduro-style racing or is this just going to be time sections of trail riding instead of a continuous loop as in the traditional XC race format? How is the race course different from the XC race course at Allamuchy?

    Great idea, just trying to find out more about the actual race course.

    Profiles are located here: Enduro: Allamuchy, June 10, 2012 | Endurorama. From the profiles you will see that the stages are net DHs. One has to remember is that there is not a set standard for an Enduro. And what they have in France is different from what they have in Oregon....

    For each of the five sections there are either sections or the entire stage that could not, and never have been be put into a typical XC or 24 hr race.

    Looks like my kind of gig. Too bad I'll be getting paid to guide MTB rides in Maine......

    Sounds like a great event, but ironically... I'll be on my motorcycle, riding the Ridge Run Enduro, formerly located in this area, but now in in NY,
