The enduro format is returning to the Port Gamble trails, with more stages and professional timing this year. This year there will be up to five stages of racing depending on the category. Red Tent Timing will be timing the race. Yes, the same people that put on the Cascadia Dirt Cup. They will be providing their expertise and prompt results for some tight racing. The Enduro will traverse the park from the north end to the south end and back, including classics like Ranger, Derailed and more. Up to 13 miles with close to 1500 feet of climbing.

For this year there is no day of registration, only online available through July 29th at 11:59 pm!

 

What is included as part of the race: 

  • Professionally timed race by Red Tent Timing 
  • Well marked course
  • Beer tokens for post race (21+)
  • Podium swag
  • Friendly competition

We will not have a food or water station on course - please have all the food and water you will need to complete the race with you. Expect 2-3 hours to complete the race.

Race Categories 

Sport and Expert will be racing all five of the stages and riders should be comfortable with some challenging trail features. There will be some loose and tricky sections to navigate.

Beginner riders have three stages. This category is intended for people recently getting into riding and the trails are moderately challenging.  

Course

  1. Ranger - Beginner, Sport, Expert. Ranger is near the north end of the Park, and is a longtime legacy downhill trail. The stage will start at the beginning of Ranger and end at the road after racing High Life.
  2. Mordor - Beginner, Sport, Expert. This stage is located in the south end of the park. It is a gravity trail with mostly natural features in tight woods with a short climb in the middle. This stage starts at the beginning of Mordor, and ends with a charge down the road to the finish. 
  3. Big Rose to Drop Trail - Sport, Expert. Big Rose is pretty fast and a bit of a lung pusher. Then into a classic and tight old school feeling trail the squeezes between the trees.
  4. Derailed - Beginner, Sport, Expert. Derailed is a blue  flow trail that has just received a top-to-bottom rebuild.
  5. Lynx, ending with High Life - Sport, Expert (aka Mycelium on Trailforks). Lynx the farthest north trail. Fast and rough without a lot of berms. This stage will also end on High Life at the same spot as stage 1.

Course Notes and Marking

We will be out marking the course on Friday morning, the 30th. Expect the course to be fully marked by the afternoon.
