A fundraiser for the trails and a celebration of mountain biking and trail running!

There is something for everyone. We are really excited to bring this Stage Race to the region. As an athlete you can go “all in” or pick and choose the events that appeal to you. We hope we have created something for everyone and that a ton of the riding community come out to support the growth of the trails in the region. THIS EVENT IS A FUNDRAISER TO BUILD MORE AND BETTER TRAILS IN THE REGION. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT.

Stage 1: We’ve gone back to our roots a little bit with Stage 1. With so few traditional XCO style races left we are bringing back a little taste of old school mtb racing. Take it serious, or not at all, it’s completely up to you and a great way to spend some time on your bike, riding a great course, and supporting trail growth. The course is a fun mix of climbs, rock gardens, and fast flowing descents, and some more climbs.

Stage 2:This is a Mountain Bike time trial. The course will be 4-5 miles long and will be a different variation from any of the other stages. You will be racing against the clock and at the end of the day there are no categories, no brackets, and no extra podiums. You are mostly racing for points in the stage race. There will be 3 men and 3 women on the podium. If you are competing in the overall stage race your finish place will be the number of points for your total standing. The stage will start 90 minutes after Stage 1 ends with riders leaving at 30 second intervals. We will start riders based upon previous results and/or your entry category in other stages.

Stage 3: The Fun-duro is back better than ever!. There will be a minimum of 5 timed segments. All segments will be descents(mostly). Each segment will be timed and the cumulative time for each segment will determine the winners. We will recognize the fastest times for each segment during the awards. Between segments you can take your time getting to the next segment; catch your breath, have a drink, eat some food as there is no real rush. The “transition” as it’s known in big Enduro races will be a time to make sure you are rested and ready to start the next section(within reason of course, we don’t want people stopping for a picnic between segments).
