MAXXIS SPECIALIZED ENDURO SERIES FINALSat Mountain Creek Bike Park – Vernon, NJ

We are excited to heading back to one of our most popular venues for Enduro Racing.

Here’s a link to our RACERS MEETING and timing procedures. Please make sure to view it before racing with us on Sunday: https://youtu.be/YU-gTVXAzCQ

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. Mountain Creek waivers must be filled out electronically onsite.

Attached is the course map. 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 2020 MAXXIS ESC Specialized Enduro rules are also attached, 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.

As a majority of the enduro stages and transfers will be taking place outside of the bike park, we encourage you all to use the buddy system when practicing.  Please save the Mountain Creek EMS dispatch phone number in case of emergency 973-864-8888

All Enduro Racers are automatically entered into the FOX TRANSFER Seatpost Climber’s Challenge competition with no extra fees. The FOX Transfer Seatpost Climber’s Challenge is a separate competition within the MAXXIS ESC Enduro Series. The seatpost will be awarded to the fastest AMATEUR on the climb, while the fastest in every class gets some cool Fox swag. One uphill transfer at each race will be timed. That one transfer will have independent timing boxes, so racers can rest before and after the timed climb. The timed transfer does not count in the overall race time. It is MANDATORY for all enduro racers to Time IN and Time Out Regardless if you are trying or just transferring to the next stage. For this race the timed climb will be the climb to stage 1
