2016 IES Bogus Basin Enduro (Pro / Expert / Sport)

The fifth and final race of the 2016 Idaho Enduro Series is set to take place at Bogus Basin.The IES is proud to partner with a local resort so dedicated to bringing dedicated MTB trails to local treasure valley residents (and visitors!).

Lets end the year with a BANG!

The race course will consist of 4 timed stages featuring close to 3500ft of climbing / descending over approximately 15 miles.

Race Details:

Stage 1: Around the Mountain "Bermy DH"

Riders will start from the lower lodge and transition UP deer point, peeling off on Around the Mountain trail. They will climb and cross the first forest road, continuing on ATM. Riders will then cross an additional forest service road and continue on the trail just before the start of the well known Strava segment "The Sweet, Bermy DH on ATM". This segment starts fast and flowy!! Rally the berms at the start of the segment. The stage then flattens out on a flowy section of trail featuring rocks, bridge crossings and tight corners. Enter the pain cave and don't stop pedaling until you reach the next section of road. Riders will then transition on Around the Mountain climbing towards the frontside of the mountain.

Stage 2: Around the Mountain "The Fun Ain't Done Yet"

After transitioning on Around the Mountain riders will come to another forest service road crossing, which will signal the start of Stage 2. The stage will start with a short punchy climb, before descending around the north side of the mountain. There are some tricky rock sections, berms, and more tight corners. Stay off the brakes!! The stage will end before the final climb out towards the upper lodge. Riders will then proceed on the final part of Around the Mountain towards the upper lodge and the start of Morningstar trail.

Stage 3: Morningstar

A classic Bogus Basin DH! There is plenty of flow to be had here! Optional ladders, superb berms and off camber corners will keep riders on their toes.

Riders will transition past the lower lodge and UP Bogus Basin Road towards the upper lodge. Riders will ride through the dirt parking lot, past the nordic lodge and up the paved road. Continue past the upper lodge on the "pack trail' or cat track road with eyes set on the very top of the mountain and the superior chairlift. Riders will continue the transfer DOWN the first section of trail, wrapping around the face and up the short climb in the middle of the face trail

Stage 4:

Face > Elk Meadows > Deer Point

Another classic IES Top to Bottom segment!! This will prove pivotal to overall race time, buckle in and give it your all!

This stage will start midway down the face trail on the more DH section. Riders will proceed across the top access road and start the snakey Elk Meadows segment. Drift those corners and stay up right!! Proceed down Deer point for the last trail on the last segment of the last IES race!!!! Leave it all out there!!

Please plan on sticking around to enjoy Music, Beer (21+) and Tacos!! The atmosphere will be fun for everyone! Invite your friends, maybe even your enemies as well!

The IES would like to thank all racers, sponsors and volunteers for a great season!
