Day One will start with a rider’s meeting at Burke Mountain Resort, then it’s off for a transfer to Victory Hill.

After racing four timed sections for at Victory Hill, riders will transfer back to Burke Mountain for one more timed race section down Lower J-Bar to wrap up Day One.

Stay Tuned as we add to the weekend. There will be more we promise

CLIF Enduro East at Burke / Victory Day One 

There’s been a lot of discussion regarding Day One at Victory Hill. Racer’s will not climb to the top of Burke Mountain, in fact they will take the lift and ride a scenic 5 mile trail to and from Victory Hill. On the return trip the racers will race down Lower J Bar back to the base.

Day two will be at Burke Mountain and feature 3 Epic Stages there.

We’ll have a Welcoming and Registration Party at Burke Friday night with appetizers and a BBQ Buffet courtesy of CLIF on Saturday with a  a live band. We are still working on a beverage sponsor.

 

 

 

 

DAY 1 Burke Mountain to Victory and Back

We’ll start the day off with a a riders meeting at Burke Mountain Resort, then it’s off for a transfer to Victory Hill. We’ll race a few timed sections at Victory Hill then transfer back to Burke Mountain for another timed race section. Remember that’s just one day of the CLIF Enduro East EWS Qualifier.

The Transfer from Burke on Day one is NOT over the top of Burke Mountain !

It is a scenic and fun 5 mile trail that goes over the shoulder of Burke to the top of Victory Hill and we’ll take the Burke lift to gain most of the elevation.

Riding to the start of an enduro with friends will be a blast.
