News: Ride Sun Valley Bike Festival Returns
Eght days of races and events, incluing the hotly-contested Super Enduro
The 3rd Annual Ride Sun Valley Bike Festival presented by Scott Sports returns to Sun Valley June 29 – July 6, 2013 with the Shimano Sun Valley Super Enduro highlighting eight days of races and events geared for anyone who can balance on two wheels. Registration for the Super Enduro is filling up with some notable riders in attendance like Mark Weir, Geoff Kabush, Aaron Bradford, Jordan Carr and Carl Decker taking the line. Registration will be capped at 250 racer and can be found at: ridesunvalleysuperenduro.athlete360.com/
With a full field of 250 racers a $5,000 purse is guaranteed to perk interest in the event. The Sun Valley Shimano 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 to the USA Cycling Marathon Mountain Bike National Championship in 2013-2014.
