Thank You for registering for the second MAXXIS ESC Specialized Enduro of 2020. We are excited to heading back to one of our most popular venues and the current enduro mtb attendance record venue, it seems to be a popular choice.

As you can imagine there are some new policies due to Covid-19, we’ll list some of them here but please use common sense at all times. A couple bad pictures or someone getting sick at our events could jeopardize the 2020 Maxxis ESC season and none of us wants that.

If you have a fever, symptoms or are afraid of catching Covid-19 please stay at home.

Registration – Please download and fill out all the attached documents prior to getting in the registration line. Only racers registering should be in line with the exception of racers under 18 for them one parent or guardian should be in the registration line. Masks must be worn when registering or in the registration line. Minors will need to have their waivers notarized if their parent will not be present at registration check-in.

Pro Racers Must be on the podium when called to receive any prizing – For all other classes we will be calling up the top 5 racers 10 minutes after their class has completed and the results have been posted.

Racers must be present when their class is called up to activate their chips. Do not start the race without doing so or you will not get your racing times and be DQ’d.

On the Trails:

  • Riders are encouraged to only ride those they arrived with
  • Riders are encouraged to continue using their masks while riding
  • Rider spacing of at least 20 meters is encouraged to avoid the “slipstream” of exhalation
  • If stopping along a trail, stopped riders must move at least 6’ off the trail tread while stopped
  • Ride within your limits. We understand everyone is ready to get out and shred. Progression and testing your limits can wait. Ride smart, ride safe!
  • All elements of the Mountain Bikers Code of Conduct should continue to be followed

2020 Maxxis ESC Specialized Virtual Racer’s Meeting – Please review

ALL RACERS

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. Please review the 2020 MAXXIS ESC Enduro and DH rules on our website, there have been some changes, so it would be best to read everything.

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

 $100 TIMING CHIPS We will be using our SIAC Fly By timing system for this event. Please note if you do not return the SIAC Timing Chip you will owe us $100. Yes they cost that much. Other enduro series require the racers to use their own or rent them plus a deposit. We trust our racers until proven otherwise so please make sure to return the chip if you decide to leave early.

Please Note: GPS units on bars or stem may interfere with the SIAC Timing Chip so it’s best not to use one

Racers must be present at the racers meeting where we will activate their chips.

Please drive slowly through neighborhood while visiting Glen Park, we do not want to upset the neighbors and please visit the local restaurants and let them know you are there because of the enduro race.

We will be onsite Friday afternoon but please understand we cannot do any registration on Friday. We have a lot of course set up and we really want to ride our bikes too !

 Also back this year is the FLAT TIRE DEFENDER Super Stage. This competition awards the fastest amateur male and amateur female one FLAT TIRE DEFENDER INSERT and the fastest in every class an FTD backpack with an FTD discount card inside, it will be contested on STAGE 1. Please note the winners will be announced and prizes awarded after the last racer has finished. Racers must be present to win awards

Back again this season is the INTENSE BIKES PODIUM PAYBACK Program that pays cash or certificates to racers that have raced with an Intense bike and have registered with Intense here: https://intensecycles.com/pages/podium-payback-program
