Saturday 6/2 Enduro – 9 am ($60 if pre-registered, $75 on-site, if spots are available)
Massanutten has partnered with Shenandoah Mountain Touring to offer a multi-stage Enduro that will test your abilities on some of the rocky and technical trails that Massanutten’s Western Slope is known for. The Enduro race combines each rider’s time across multiple stages. Whoever has the lowest overall time wins!

All Enduro riders will need to be on their bike and ready to ride at 9 am for a short climb and Stage 1 – a quick, 2 minute seeding run that will determine the ride order throughout the rest of the day.

NOTE: We will be changing up the Enduro stages for 2018 but there will probably be some similarities to 2017. 

All riders then will complete a 45-60 minute climb to the top of Stage 2 where runs will start at 11:30 am.

Stages 3 and 4 are accessible from the gravel road on Massanutten’s Western Slope. Shuttles will be provided for stages 3 and 4.

Sunday 6/3 Cross Country Race
XXC Class Start – 9 am ($50 if pre-registered, $65 on-site) Did you know that you can prepare a bag with food/water/etc. to send with our support truck that you will encounter ~9 miles in? The HOO-HA! XXC will be the first stop of the VA-XXC 2017 series.
