MAXXIS ESC BOX Showdown #7 at Mountain Creek Bike Park

We are excited to heading back to one of our most popular venues for DH and Enduro Racing, this will be our first race back at MCBP after a one year hiatus.

If you have not paid for your plate, registration and/or Saturdays Lift Pass, please note it is CASH only onsite.

All attached forms must be filled out even if you preregistered. Print them out, fill them in and save time.

After checking in/registering at our tents racers will receive a unique code to be used in the shop for your ticket(s) and to fill out the MCBP waiver.

Attached are a couple of documents for you to review, two are course maps. We will NOT have printed maps for this event as the courses are easy to follow, so if you want one please print it. The 2019 MAXXIS ESC Enduro and DH rules are also attached, there have been some changes, so it would be best to read everything.

We will be onsite Friday afternoon but please understand we cannot do any registration on Friday. We have a lot of set up and course work to get done.
