Nestled into the foothills of the Appalachian mountain range in the northern most 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 race courses that challenge and satisfy even the most seasoned racers.

For the North America Enduro Series Mountain Creek will be putting together a six stage 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 racers fitness and bike handling skills across a variety of terrain.
