Maxxis ESC Enduro Finals presented by Kate’s Real Food
October 16-17 ,2021
150% MAXXIS ESC Enduro Ranking Points
The Maxxis Eastern States Cup is proud to present the MAXXIS ESC Specialized Enduro Finals at Mountain Creek Bike Park in Vernon, NJ. The Bike Park is conveniently located approximately 50 miles from New York City and the many Airports in the area.
For the Series Finals, The Maxxis Eastern States Cup and Mountain Creek Bike Park will be putting together an enduro race that utilizes all of the resort’s four interconnected mountain peaks. This event will give racers the opportunity to ride terrain typically not accessible to the Bike Park guests and stages will be designed to challenge both racer’s fitness and bike handling skills across a variety of terrain.
Nestled into the foothills of the Appalachian mountain range in the northernmost corner of New Jersey, Mountain Creek packs a punch well beyond its 1400ft elevation would have you think. Known for its classically east-coast technical terrain and square-edged rock gardens, Mountain Creek has long been a staple destination on the Northeast race scene since the resort first opened to Mountain Biking in 1999. The birthplace of the US Open of Mountain Biking and a regular on the USA Cycling ProGRT and Maxxis Eastern States Cup calendars, Mountain Creek consistently delivers racecourses that challenge and satisfy even the most seasoned racers.
