September 5-6, 2020 MAXXIS SPECIALIZED ESC Enduro Series 

Starting off the year in early May is the trail network at Diamond Hill. This trail system has been on the schedule in the past, but returns after a two-year hiatus. Coastal temperatures mean this trail system opens up early in the season, however, be sure to bring your mud and rain gear as New England weather can be temperamental this time of year.

The riding at Diamond Hill is challenging, with steep rock slabs and technical wooden features. Some flatter sections will benefit the riders who were dedicated to their training throughout the off-season, as well as the fact that this will be a totally human-powered event. This means pedaling all the transfer stages.

Registration: Saturday 9-2 and Sunday 8-9
Practice: Saturday 9-4 
Race: Sunday  Enduro 9am
