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

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

Enduro racers please note:

On Race Day enduro racers will use the Ramshead lift to access Stage 1 only! The transfer to the K1 Gondola will be pedal only via Vale Road. There will be a Timing Beacon placed on the climb and any racers without the time stamp will incur a time penalty

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

At Killington 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 for 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 after a two year absence due to covid restrictions. Killington is still the current showdown attendance record venue, it seems to be a popular choice.

We will have onsite registration available, IF the events are not sold out beforehand.

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
