Coler Enduro

9:00am 9:00am

Coler Enduro

What is Enduro?
Enduro racing combines many aspects from other mountain bike disciplines- endurance of cross country, technical features of downhill, and requires adaptability to all kinds of terrain and styles of trail. In a cross country race, riders compete in a group for fastest overall time on a course with terrain most suitable for a hardtail or short travel bike. A DH race is solo and downhill only; the course features rock gardens, rough terrain, and big features that test the riders technical ability. Enduro racing combines elements of both disciplines to offer a course that is both technically challenging, but also requires some pedaling endurance. The timing method is unique as well. Riders are timed primarily on downhill, diverse segments, over several stages throughout the course.

Come out to Coler Bike Park and race!
