Sugarbush Kask Showdown Information

MAXXIS ESC KASK SHOWDOWN

 at Sugarbush Resort

PLEASE TAKE A PICTURE OF YOUR LIFT PASS, OTHERWISE IF YOU LOSE IT YOU WILL NEED TO PURCHASE A REPLACEMENT FROM SUGARBUSH

** NOTE: All riders on the Race and Transfer segments at Sugarbush on Saturday and Sunday must be registered racers with number plates.

Can you imagine if all 300+ racers brought a friend?

NO Ebikes are allowed this weekend at Sugarbush. If a racer is using an ebike on the Sugarbush property, they will incur a time penalty or disqualification. Sorry about this but we don’t want anyone to gain any unfair advantages.

SUGARBUSH KASK SHOWDOWN T-SHIRTS WILL BE ON SALE FOR $10 AT REGISTRATION

At Sugarbush we will be hosting ‘Rolling Awards” for Amateur/ Expert DH and aged-grouped enduro classes.

This means you can pick up your medals and any prizing immediately after the results have been posted and the 15-minute “Protest Period” have passed. We will have the podium and backdrops set up and racers can take their own podium pictures. We will host a quick awards ceremony after both events have ended for all Pro Racers, the Kask Showdown, the Koo Speed Zone, the FTD Stage and the Fox Climbers Challenge.

We plan on following the same procedures for the balance of the Kask Showdowns, the Kask Showdown days are long and we know you all want to get home as soon as you can.

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.

We will have onsite registration available.

There will be a Mandatory ENDURO Racers Meeting at 8:30am Sunday

Please watch our Virtual Racer Meeting as we will not cover this info at the live meeting: Mandatory Virtual Enduro Racers Meeting Click Here
