Burke Mountain Stans Enduro

July 27-28, 2024 Maxxis ESC Stans Enduro at Burke Mountain


July 27-28, 2024 Maxxis ESC Stans Enduro at Burke Mountain

Registration: Saturday 9-1 and Sunday 8-9
Practice: Saturday 9-4 
Race: Sunday  Enduro 8:30am 

Burke Mountain Bike Park  was the location for an Enduro World Series Event last year. The mountain 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-BarDH 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.
