    Scott Enduro Durango Questions

    I know it's a ways out but a few of us our coming up to race this round and had a few questions. Never ridden in Durango or Colorado in general. Any ideas what we should expect as for as terrain goes?
    Sugestions on tires, is a trail bike suitable, or longer travel needed?


    Thanks and looking forward to the trip.

    This is their first time there I believe but I would expect a long day in the backcountry and a resort day with at least one big climb, probably similar to their angelfire race. You didn't say where you were from but everything down there is straight up and straight down. A lot of people will be on trail bikes. Probably 3-4k of climbing on the backcountry day.

    Any local intel on which trails will be included on backcountry and park race days?
    I understand we have a lift pass for Friday to pre-ride. How about a good loop for a Thursday ride?

    So, given all that has happened since this last post ...
    How do the trails ride in the wet? Deep, sticky, slick mud or splash on through?

    Backcountry trails around Purg hold water very well. I've been stuck up there in massive downpours and the water mostly runs down and off the trail. Ride through, not peanut butter. I suspect Purg itself has a little of both. But in general, not the peanut butter death mud that the "in town" trails around Durango are known for.

    Yup, we got that email. Bummer.
    Lodging is locked in, so hopefully Purgatory is open Friday and then we'll explore the area. Phil's World, etc.
