Jiminy Peak – Thule Showdown – Enduro and DH

JUNE 22-23, 2024 MAXXIS ESC THULE SHOWDOWN at Jiminy Peak, MA
MAXXIS ESC Stan’s Enduro Series
MAXXIS ESC Intense Downhill Series

Jiminy Peak Bike Park is kicking off their summer season with the Thule Showdown, featuring mountain bike downhill and enduro races held over a single action-packed weekend.

Jiminy Peak boasts a bike park with a greater concentration of technical terrain. Racers can expect an exhilarating experience on trails that are hand-built, without the presence of machine-built flow or jump trails. Every run at Jiminy Peak features a narrow corridor and follows the steepest route down the mountain, adding an extra element of challenge and excitement. For those seeking a weekend filled with thrilling two-wheeled racing, Jiminy Peak offers exceptional terrain.

During the event, the park will be exclusively open to registered participants of the Maxxis Eastern States Cup races from Friday to Sunday.

ENDURO:

 ENDURO: Once activated it is Imperative that Enduro Racers DO NOT Allow their Race chips to be idle near the start or finish beacons; The chips will constantly read the times broadcast by the beacons. The timing chips have a capacity of 100 time stamps and will quickly run out of space. After reading 100 time stamps, the timing chip will no longer read any more times. As a result, no times will be recorded, and you will be declared a DNF.

ENDURO: Enduro Racers MUST hand in their timing chips within 15 minutes after finishing the last stage or they will be penalized 1 minute, after 30 minutes racers will be DQ’d from the event
