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.

Trail Jackass
Flowier jump trail with some mild tech due to washboard corners (like most of Silver Mnt). A couple of small drops (1.5 to 2 ft). Nothing too steep though.

Trail Spooky Woods
Rooty tech trail. A couple steep off camber corners in a couple of places. No jumps. Mild to easier black diamond.

Trail Wildcat
Small jumps, a few optional table tops, fairly fast flow trail. Some small roots in places, but not too tough. Like the rest of Silver Mnt, many of the turns have large braking washboards coming into them. Overall a fun flow trail.

Trail Jackass
Very blown out, braking bumps, bomb holes, craters, this trail is just in terrible shape. If you have the bike and the skill to enjoy this, you will want more than a blue trail.

It's like it's been designed by the work experience kid.
