Enduro Cup is thrilled to announce three competition stops for the 2014 season; Moab, UT (May 3), Sun Valley, ID (Jun. 27-29) and Canyons Resort, Park City, UT (July 19). Both the Sun Valley and Canyons Resort races are part of the North American Enduro Tour. Each stop will offer a unique and challenging mountain bike race for both professional and amateur athletes. As the demand for Enduro mountain bike races continues to increase, Enduro Cup is excited to provide race opportunities in three distinct regions.
The Moab stop on May 3 will continue to take place on the Magnificent 7 trail system, but will include a few trail adjustments enabling riders to spend more time on singletrack. The race will cover approximately 17.5 miles of red rock terrain with four timed stages totaling 6.5 miles. The course will feature 1,800 feet descending and 650 feet ascending.
Next, the series moves to Sun Valley, Idaho as the flagship race of the Ride Sun Valley Bike Festival June 27-29 (permit pending). The Sun Valley stop, a.k.a ‘Sun Valley Super Enduro,’ will be one of the longest enduro races offered anywhere in the U.S. with 24 miles and 9,000 vertical descending feet. The Ride Sun Valley Festival will provide riders and fans with a plethora of entertainment and activities around the race including the Sheeptown Drag Races, a downtown criterium, local stoker rides, pump track challenges, music and more.
More information on the Ride Sun Valley Festival is available on ridesunvalley.com.
Finally, Enduro Cup will head to its final stop at Canyons Resort. Last year’s race at Canyons Resort featured a stacked pro field and enthusiastic crowd. The 2014 Canyons Resort will feature additional stages to last year’s course and inclusion of the Canyons bike park. Racers at Canyons Resort can expect a course covering 17.2 miles of trails within Canyons’ network covering approximately 3,400 vertical feet ascending and descending.
