2018 Sun Valley Enduro

Welcome to the 3rd stop of the 2018 Idaho Enduro Series! We are proud to be partnering with the world class Sun Valley Resort to showcase some of the best lift served mountain biking in the state of Idaho. After a tough first two stops in the series, we are happy to present riders with long race stages and minimal climbing! However, don't think for a second the stages will be easy!

Transfer 1 - Lift to top of Bald Mountain.

Stage 1 - Broadway > Lupine - What a great start to the race! Plenty of flat our speed to be found on this one! Lupine features some very fun rollers with plenty of flow.

Transfer 2 - Riders will transfer down the cat track road past the Christmas chairlift.

Stage 2 - Mindbender - Bald Mountain's newest freeride trail, Mindbender boasts the biggest jumps in the entire valley (all roll-able features). Enjoy the scenic views and flowing berms all day, but pay attention to the trail!

Transfer 3 - Riders will transfer down the end of Mindbender trail (berm section).

Stage 3 - Lower River Run - a long stage to end the day! There are plenty of berms and tight switchbacks to be found on this stage. Pedal your heart out, you are almost done!

Get out there and have fun!!!
