August 29-30, 2020 MAXXIS SPECIALIZED ESC Enduro Series at Burke Mountain VT
Registration: Saturday 9-2 and Sunday 8-9
Practice: Saturday 9-4
Race: Sunday Enduro 9am
Burke Mountain Bike Park is located in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, within the network of trails known as the Kingdom Trails. This has to be one of the most visited trail systems in the United States throughout the summer months. Though most of the trails surrounding East Burke are mellower cross-country and flow trails, the runs at the bike park and above offer a serious technical challenge.
Classic runs that are commonly used for enduro races are Upper and Lower J-Bar, DH Trail, and Dead Moose Alley. These tracks drop from the top of the mountain and require either a shuttle or pedal to reach the start. The trails drop elevation quickly and are packed with mostly natural features to keep riders on their toes. Access to trails such as Knightslayer and Jester can be attained by the Sherburne Express Lift in the bike park and give riders the option of large jump trails with significant airtime.
This race will be just a few weeks after the first Enduro World Series event on the East Coast of the United States takes place at Burke. Racers will most likely be riding a lot of the same courses as that event. Look for this to be a well-attended race by riders from all walks of life.
