What is Enduro?
Somewhere between grueling cross-country and rowdy downhill mountain bike racing, Enduro has emerged as one of the sport’s most popular race disciplines. Enduro is a multi-stage race format, which combines descending timed stages and untimed transfer stages.
What is included in the registration fee?
Enduro Cup registration includes a t-shirt, post-race lunch and Sierra Nevada beer vouchers. The Angel Fire, Sun Valley and Deer Valley Resort registration fees will also include lift tickets for race days.
Can I transfer my entry?
Yes, you may transfer your entry but there may be an additional fee required if you are switching events. Additionally, no refunds will be given to participants who move into a less expensive race. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to transfer entries.
How does timing work?
Enduro Cup uses state of the art chip timing systems to provide accurate results at each race.
Are the transfer stages timed?
Transfer stages are untimed but each stage has a maximum time limit. Maximum time limits will be discussed at the athlete meeting before each Round.
