Welcome to the final stop of the 2018 Idaho Enduro Series! We are excited to be closing down the season in style at Jug Mountain Ranch.
The race course will consist of 3 timed stages featuring close to 1,800ft of climbing / descending over approximately 10 miles. Each transition is approximately 580ft of ascent on the South Boundary Trail, not including short climbs within each segment.
It is the riders responsibility to know the course and the transition stages. ALL CLIMBING will take place on the "South Boundary Trail", which originates at the upper parking lot and continues on a mix of single track and double track access road, up towards Jug Mountain Lookout. Continue past the end of South Boundary Trail to the shortcut connector (mainline) to access the start of stage 1 (Vandelay).
This will be a thigh burner! Enter the pain cave on this pedally, long stage. One of the flatter stages, with a few punch climbs will be waiting for riders. There are plenty of wide open, fast sections as well! Bike handling will be key as riders face off camber corners, rock gardens, and tricky tight corners! At the completion of Stage 1, riders will transfer down MAINLINE to the main venue area.
Stage 2 - Berm & Ernie
Idahos premier flow trail! It doesn't get much better than this! This is a proper flow trail with awesome berms, rock gardens, pump sections and jumps. It opens up towards the bottom, how fast can you fly through the forest and rally that last berm before the finish line??? Riders are welcome to grab a quick drink in the parking lot before heading back up the south boundary transition.
Riders will start on the brand new Doe Joe flow trail, featuring tight berms and short pedally sections. Plenty of turns are to be had on this upper section! There are also some optional lines on this trail, which line is faster? At the end of Doe Joe, riders will continue with a slight right hand turn on to the Elk Clubhouse connector trail. Please be on the lookout for the sharp UPHILL left hand turn directing riders up to the clubhouse. Quick shift in to some low gears and hammer up that hill to the finish line!! You made it!
