ENDURO #1 – SUNRISE

Sunrise Enduro

September 17, 2017

Presented by

Pivot Cycles

Location:
Sunrise Ski Resort (map)
Greer, AZ

Race Format:
Enduro racing is made up of multiple timed descents. Riders will follow a specific route to get to the start of each stage, some by pedal others by chair lift. After all the stages are completed, a rider’s combined time will determine their overall placing on the day.

Knee pads, elbow pads, and a full face helmet are strongly recommended. A trail bike with 120+ mm of travel and a dropper seat post is encouraged.

General Information:
Sunrise Ski Resort is located 50-mins east of Show Low in the White Mountains of Arizona. Pine forest, aspens, and loamy soil are what you’ll find up there. The trails at Sunrise are rugged with lots of rocks, roots and drops.

For this event, lift access will be provided for select stages. This equals less pedaling and longer runs!

NOTE – The lifts will only be running Saturday & Sunday. They are opening up special just for our event.
