Additional info about trails:
The Grand Enduro is a Grand Valley classic and hosted on one of the few "shuttle-able" local trails. MAD Racing Colorado secured the permits to take you down this legendary route for the 2nd year in a row. You'll start on an otherworldly, humongous slab of rock and be hitting speeds in excess of 30mph in a matter of seconds. Riders who aren't racing generally take their time on this section and carve the lunar-like landscape, but the clock is running on you! You need to get off that rock and onto the singletrack as soon as possible! We'll have it heavily taped, but pay particular attention during practice for landmarks that'll help you navigate the correct route - a missed turn or off-course excursion up here could at best cost you loads of time and at worst send you plummeting off a cliff!
