2018 IES Pocatello Pedalfest PRO / EXPERT / SPORT

COME ONE, COME ALL to the first round of the 2018 Idaho Enduro Series Pocatello Pedalfest Enduro. We are VERY excited to be kicking off our 2018 season with all of you! We have a great course this year, featuring a BRAND NEW stage (Crestline). It is going to be an AMAZING season!

Meeting location - the race will start and end at GIBSON JACK TRAILHEAD. Please DO NOT head up to Scout Mountain Campground.

Gibson Jack Trailhead
9812 Gibson Jack Rd, Pocatello, ID 83204

The Course:

Stage 1)
Crestline DH - brand new in 2018, this stage starts high on scout mountain and descends quickly through some of the most breathtaking scenery this side of the Mississippi. But dont let your eyes wander too much, we have a technical high speed trail to get down!
Riders will transition back up the road past the campground, heading to stage 2.

Stage 2)
Upper Valve House DH - are you ready for another screaming fast descent!? This partial single track / partial jeep road should not be taken lightly, its a real burner! Watch for that rock section at the top, what a great way to start stage 2. Pedal hard on the straights and put that head down as you whizz towards the finish.
Riders will have a quick transition down to Windango

Stage 3)
Windago DH - Slightly more pedally than the first 2 stages, Windago promises to get that heart rate going! Some great flow can be found as you descend through the forest along a beautiful creek. Keep your eyes on the trail! You are racing after all!
Riders will transition down the road, watching for West Fork Mink Creek trail on their left.

Stage 4)
Gibson Jack - once considered a top 10 descent in Idaho by local Enduro rider, Tucker Jockham, this trail is one of the crown Jewels of SE Idaho. This stage has it all, technical rock laiden singletrack, buttery smooth flowy bits, and mash those pedal flat sections. You better leave everything you have on the course because this is the LAST stage of the first stop in our 2018 series. Head down to the parking lot, collect your medal, grab a beer and congratulate your fellow riders!!! Meet someone new!

Thanks for reading and we will see you out there folks!!!
