ENDURO SERIES FINALS at Mountain Creek Bike Park

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 Saturday’s Lift Pass, please note it is CASH only onsite.

All attached forms must be filled out even if you are 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 2021 MAXXIS ESC Enduro rules are also attached, it would be best to read everything.

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

The neutral pit area is the parking/camping lot and base, no assistance is allowed elsewhere.

NO RIDING ON ROUTE 94 OR CUTTING THROUGH THE CONDOS IN PRACTICE OR DURING THE RACE

OR FACE THE POSSIBILITY OF A DQ

Racers will compete in stages 1-2-3-4-5 in that order

EXCEPT: Kate’s Kids and Kate’s Lite Classes, they will compete on Stages 

5-1-2-3 in that order.

Racers must be present at the Racer’s Meeting, where we announce their Chip Activation Times. 

This is where we activate/turn on the timing chips and where racers start their transfers.

The FOX Seatpost Climbers Challenge will be contested this weekend. We will announce the location at the racers meeting Sunday at 8:30am

Back is the FOX Seatpost Climbers Challenge. We’ll award the fastest amateur a FOX Transfer Seatpost and the fastest in every class some cool FOX Socks. 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

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.
