Rule Update: Riders will be allowed outside assistance, as long as it is not on the main equipment marked with stickers. All outside assistance MUST take place at the base. Riders will be allowed to use the bike shop, support crews, or family. These trails are tough on bikes. This rule change was made in an effort to keep everyone racing and having fun. 

Course Info 

All categories will race all stages.

Resort Day 1* – Saturday, June 9, 2018: 

Day 1’s resort course kicks off with four stages at Angel Fire Bike Park.

Due to the Ute Park forest fire and additional fire hazards in the surrounding areas, we have made the decision to move Day 1 into the resort. We have been working closely with the forest service to ensure the protection of the areas at risk as well as the safety of our riders. See additional information below for travel updates/road closures. For more information click here.

Resort Day 2* – Sunday, June 10, 2018: 

Day 2’s resort course takes place at Angel Fire Bike Park, with three timed stages.

*Please note: Due to the nature of the trails, Angel Fire Bike Park recommends all riders wear a full face helmet on resort day.

NEW! Updated Junior divisions

Enduro Cup always strives to create a fair competition environment. Based on junior athlete feedback, we’ve created two junior categories – U18 and U15. Junior athletes that have already registered for a 2018 race have been automatically assigned to either group based on their age. Those who have not registered will have the option to pick either category based on their age ON RACE DAY. If U15 riders wish to compete in U18 for the remainder of the season, they are welcome to. Please email our registration manager if you have been assigned to U15 but would like to race up. Additionally, riders can switch categories at packet pickup before each race.
