Dear friends of The E 100,

This series is already gaining huge national attention and will bring the best national and international XC biker to the events.
We were also invited to be a park of Regional NORBA Rocky Mountain Ultra MTB series. Seven races from Colorado, Utah and Wyoming make up this prestigious series, with each event bringing a unique flavor to the fast growing sport of endurance cycling.
12 Hours of Endurance is the opening event of RMU series with The E 100 SOLO events grand finale.
With publicity from this two national endurance series events and two full-page ads in Bicycling and Mountain Bike magazines our registration is going really strong. We are having a lot of new people from all over the county coming to the events. We will see a lot of big name pro racers and really exciting competition.

The Endurance 100
Trail Update for 2006
Due to the construction in Deer Valley, Park City and The Canyons... Boris, Jim and I went out and spent the day GPS'ing the new routes! I can tell you this...they are going to be SWEET!! Boris took us out on the new (or actually very old, hidden, secrect stash) of Bow Hunter.... This is some incredibly narrow singletrack, and the views make it hard to keep your eye on the trail....this is what Mountain Biking is all about!!
I will be posting the new maps as soon as Boris signs off on them...should be today!! So get out and ride!!
See everyone in 14 Days!!
The new course maps and directions are now online! If you've previewed them recently you may have to clear the cache in your browser so that you're viewing the most recent.
Good Luck everyone!
- Keep the Rubber Side Down!!
