  • Guests who arrived in the same vehicle will be permitted to ride the chair together, all other guests will be asked to sit separately. 
  • Bikes will be unloaded and placed in a rack for guests to pick up. Sanitation wipes and hand sanitizer will be available at the top of the chairlift.

  • Riders are encouraged to only ride those they arrived with
  • Riders are encouraged to continue using their masks while riding

MAXXIS ESC BOX SHOWDOWN 

MAXXIS ESC Enduro Series 
MAXXIS ESC Downhill Series 

1Pm -6PM DH Practice Saturday – Course is being used for enduro race until then

Blue Mountain Bike Park is one of the roughest parks on both bikes and bodies. The embedded rock wreaks havoc on tires and rims when the speeds start to ramp up. The terrain actually seems to provide more traction in the wet, as the rocks provide grip and the loose marbles that roll around on the hard pack begin to bed in.

Racers will have to find the straightest line to be the fastest against the clock and this usually means some rim pings. Descents such as Night Train are long and challenging, with short bursts of pedaling required midway through the run. This is made all the more difficult as it takes place in the middle of a rock garden, where pedal strikes can easily catch a rider off guard. Those comfortable with high speeds will do very well at this race.
