The Enduro will consist of 4 timed stages.  Each stage is a different combination of trails and are mostly downhill.  We’re using pretty much every trail legal to bikes in the park, and will have some overlapping sections; where you’ll ride a section or two more than once over the course of the day.

  • Sunday Start :  The start is going to be a Lemans start (run to your bikes) and start the day with a “non-timed climb” to (thin the herd) but there are some bonuses for the XC guys and gals (cash grab or two) for getting to the top.
  • All Stages are first come first served, which means: get there quick and you won’t be waiting around to move on. Once riders make it up to the start of a stage they’ll be let go at one minute intervals. Like I said the timed stages are all mostly downhill
  • Stage 1 To be Announced (Paris Mtn)
  • Stage 2 To be Announced (Paris Mtn)
  • Stage 3 To be Announced (Paris Mtn)
  • Stage 4 To be Announced (Paris Mtn)
  • The in between stages are non timed , and are some big climbs some road / some trail.

Map of the Park (pdf file) we’ll let you imagine the routes.

  • we’ll have a handful of volunteers manning some of the intersections of the trails being used… very minimal in the taping of course routes. You’ll know which way to go.
  • Stages maybe announced 2 weeks prior to the event date. The timed stages will challenge all skill levels of riders and will cover nearly every multi-use trail in Paris Mtn. State Park.
  • Choice of Bike (XC,AM,DH) is up to you.


We’ll have 2 volunteers at each start and finish:

  • A Sport-ident timing system will be used. We will have flying starts and flying finishes this year.
  • Each rider will receive a chip that will be attached to their left wrist.
  • At the start of each stage a volunteer will read riders chip with a checkpoint unit. You will then have a 20ft run in and pass a start timing gate that will start your stage time.
  • At the finish of each stage you will pass through a finish timing gate. After you pass through the finish gate you will have a 20 yard run out where a volunteer will check you out and direct you to the next stage. Riders must come to a complete stop in order to have their chip ready the volunteer.
  • Your Flying Finish Time will be you official finish time for the stage.

Timing Chips will be taken at the finish of Stage 4 and times calculated and ranked by category. All chips must be returned at the end of the day.

****If you do not return your chips you will be charged a $200 fee for replacement****
