Vittoria ESC Enduro #3 at Thunder Mountain
Thank You for registering for the third Vittoria ESC Enduro of 2017. We are excited to heading back to one of our most popular venues, it seems to be a popular choice. Presently we are at 240 racers and boy are we excited to break our all-time enduro attendance record!

Attached are a couple documents for you to review, one is the map. We will NOT have printed maps for this event as the course is easy to follow, so if you want one please print it. The 2017 Vittoria ESC Enduro rules are also attached, there have been some changes so it would be best to read everything.

We will be onsite Friday afternoon, if you pre-registered and paid in full you can pick up your timing chip and check in to avoid the line on Saturday morning. We can issue your plate too.
This is informal registration when we are at the tents as we’ll be still setting things up on the tracks.

UPON ARRIVAL
• Fill out the Thunder Mountain Waiver or you can do that ahead of time here: http://thundermountainbikepark.com/waiver/
• Fill out the ESC registration sheet and sign the ESC waiver on the back, I did attach both to this email so you can do that ahead of time too.
• Then check in at Thunder Mountain Desk inside the lodge. They will check everything and hand the Registration sheet back to you.
• Bring the CHECKED filled out registration sheet to the ESC tents and we’ll issue chips and answer any questions about the event.

Back is the FOX Seatpost Climbers Challenge. We’ll award the fastest amateur a FOX Seatpost and the fastest in every class some cool FOX Socks. Remember you have to chip in and out on the climb. If you fail to chip in and out on the climb you will be assessed a time penalty. The climb will take place between race section 1 and 2. Lifts may be used for practice and for race sections 1,3 and 4

New this year is the ALEX RIMS Super Stage. This competition awards the fastest amateur male and amateur female a pair of Alex Rims Volar rims, it will be contested on STAGE 4.

We will be back at Thunder for the $10,000 CLIF Enduro East EWS Qualifier September 9-10. Full information is here: http://www.enduroeast.com/
