    Advice for first enduro race at Snow Summit

    Hey Everyone,

    So I signed up for my first Enduro race at Snow Summit. I've been Mountain Biking for about 3-4 years. I've been to Snow Summit before like 2-3 times on a DH bike. I'm comfortable with Westridge, Miracle mile stills kind of scare me. Was wondering if you guys had any advice for the Enduro race at Snow Summit. I signed up for the beginner/CAT 3. Not expecting to win, hoping to finish, not get hurt, and just have fun ahah

    Thanks!

    Take advantage of the practice time before the race. Ride Miracle Mile and stop to watch other riders go through sections that you may be worried about. Also you may want to make yourself familiar with the trails out of the bike park, if you aren't already. Most likely 2 of the 3 stages will be on these trails. Here is someones strava from one of the races last year. https://www.strava.com/activities/324787645 Looks like they took one practice lap and the race. Don't worry too much, you've already got the right attitude by going into it just looking to have fun.

    Expect a lot more bike park than the Strava posted. Overall just relax and have fun. Don't stress about results, just enjoy the group and make a lot of new friends that are as stoked as you on racing. BTW I will be one of the guys in Better Buzz gear. Make sure to say hello.

    Went out today. I fine with stage 1 and 2. But I'm scared of miracle mile ahaha. It says its a four stages enduro but there's only 3 gpx files?

    They added a 4th stage on the course info but it's the same as stage 3. I'm guessing stage 4 with finish with the bottom of miracle mile instead of turtles
