SCOTT's Hometown Bike Festival Adds 2 Day Pro Open Mountain Bike Enduro to Event Calendar
Sun Valley, ID - The 3rd Annual Ride Sun Valley Bike Fest returns to Sun Valley June 29 - July 6, 2013 with the Sun Valley Super Enduro highlighting eight days or races and events geared for anyone who can balance on two wheels. Registration for the Super Enduro opens at 8:00 pm MST Wednesday February 13, 2013 and will be capped at 250 racers.
Registration can be found at Athlete 360.
The Sun Valley Super Enduro offers four different downhill stages and one bike park stage for riders to test their skill and ability to keep the throttle wide open. "This style of racing suits Sun Valley perfectly and with over 11,000 vertical feet of descending over two days, riders are definitely going to feel as though they got their money's worth. The trails are fast and flowy and more about speed and flow than sheer technical skill, which makes it possible for all levels of riders to compete and have a blast," said event director Greg Randolph.
Recently named as an IMBA Epic Ride Center, Sun Valley is truly one of the nation's mountain bike meccas. Ride Sun Valley will also play host the USA Cycling Marathon Mountain Bike National Championship in 2013-2014.
"SCOTT has been on board with Ride Sun Valley since the inception of the festival," added Adrian Montgomery, Marketing/PR Director for SCOTT Bicycles. "I'm happy to see our hometown festival include new disciplines of cycling that are in line with what the market is looking for. After two consecutive years of hosting the USAC XC Nats the event is now on the map as well as many cyclists' 'bucket list.' Embracing the Enduro crowd is one step closer to having one of the nation's best bike festivals."
