Enduro is Coming

The MBAA is excited to announce a 3 race Enduro series coming fall of 2017 to Arizona. We thank you for your feedback from our test event last summer in Prescott. Your input has been included in what is sure to be a super fun and exciting race series.

Register Now

As is customary with Enduro racing, course maps will be released the Thursday prior to the event. Trail bikes and dropper seat posts are strongly recommended!

Staging for the Prescott Enduro will be at Thumb Butte trailhead, and staging for the Tucson Enduro will be at the Molino Basin campground. That should give you a clue as to which trails might be used 🙂

The Sunrise Enduro will include lift access as well as one pedal stage. The Prescott and Tucson courses are pending Forest Service approval.

Get ready for a rowdy good time!

Thanks for a Great XC Season!

Time to start planning your 2017 race season!

First timer? Come give it at try, you won’t be alone. Juniors, gain race experience and make some new friends. Weekend Warriors, battle it out with your buds, we’ve adjusted the age brackets. Elite & Veteran Racers, we’ve got some new venues and courses to keep things interesting.

Take your best 5 of 6 races for a chance at the series overall, all races equal points.

2017 Schedule

January 14 – McDowell Meltdown
January 28 – Estrella Hedgehog Hustle
February 11 – Lake Havasu Havoc
March 25 – White Tank Whirlwind
April 15 – Prescott Punisher
May 13 – Flagstaff Frenzy
May 14 – Super D*
June 3 – Flagstaff Team Relay*

* Series points not awarded

Changes & Additions:

We have added an Intermediate SS category which will race a shorter distance than the Expert SS category.

We have also adjusted the beginner and intermediate age groups so they align, making it easier to upgrade and remain in the same age group (19-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50+).

With the increasing number of junior races, we’ve broken the categories into 2 year age groups and added a 6-8 category. This will help shrink the gap between kids on the younger/older side of their respective categories. Junior categories will consist of 6-8, 9-10, 11-12, 13-14.

Lastly, we will again offer a discount (excluding juniors, you only pay $20 per race) when registering for the entire MBAA series before Jan. 12 2017 ($200 for 6 races + a free t-shirt). Begin by clicking on the Arizona Reg link below, then Register Now and check all 6 races, then use coupon “MBAA2017Series” at checkout.

Note:

  • Start times and lap counts are subject to change
  • Flagstaff & Prescott course maps are not yet available
  • The team relay event will be a stand alone event this year occurring June 3, 2017
  • All proceeds from the Super D will again go towards the Flagstaff Bike Organization

 

We look forward to seeing you out at the races in 2017!

Sincerely,

– The MBAA Board
