Day 1 of the 2016 North American Enduro Cup!

Transfer 1: Depart Silver Mountain Village, travel east on Trail of CDA, and up Frog Trees & Wildcat. Paved rails to trails followed by a machine built single track climb. There's some room for passing on this steady climb with short traverses. but some short traverses

Stage 1: Pirate Trail, Wide Open, Secret Squirrel, end of Man Child, finish before Cemetery Road. This is a mix of high speed flow and tech trails featuring a few small table tops, off camber sections, roots, and multiple line choices.

Transfer 2: Down Frog Trees, ride back on Trail of CDA and upload on the Silver Mountain Gondola.

Stage 2: Dave's Delight to Happy Day to Crescent Road. This stage is a long, slightly pedaly descent. There will be some room for some pedaling and some sharp, unexpected turns to keep you on your toes.

Transfer 3: Crescent Road to Crescent Trail to Mountain House. Ride up the switchbacks under the gondola!

Stage 3: Jackass, Lower Jackass, Ridge Road, Corkscrew, Highlife. This is where the fun pours on: A fast, flowy intermediate trail with short tech sections. Focus on flow for a competitive time here.

Transfer 4: Ridge Road. A short dirt road, downhill. Nobody said that all the transfers had to be uphill.

Stage 4: Spooky Woods. One of the original DH trails at Silver. Its got great root sections, a little climb near the start but it gets progressively rowdier the further you descend.

Transfer 5: Pepsi Can. Relax and have some fun on a great flow section.

Stage 5: Wildcat ,with option of Snaggletooth, end before Cemetery Road. A long uninterrupted flow trail with a few pedaling spots. Snaggletooth is quicker, but extremely technical. Be sure to practice this line before attempting in on race day!

This is followed by a nice, leisurely pedal back to the Silver Mountain Village along the Trail of CDA.
