The Enduro race, on Saturday July 4, is one of the largest races of its kind on the East Coast and features five timed downhill segments connected by untimed, uphill/lift served sections. Both Saturday and Sunday's races will crown the Vermont State Champions. Don't miss this opportunity to see some of the region's fastest mountain bikers compete.
