Enduro Cup will stop at Deer Valley
The SCOTT Enduro Cup presented by Vittoria is excited to announce the final stop of the 2016 race season. Deer Valley Resort will host the Park City race on Aug. 28. Registration will open for the Park City race stop on Friday, April 22. Registration for Moab (May 7), Angel Fire, New Mexico (June 11-12) and Sun Valley, Idaho (June 25-26) is currently open.
"We are excited to see Deer Valley added as the fourth and final stop of the 2016 SCOTT Enduro Cup Season," said SCOTT Bike Marketing Manager Zack Vestal. "SCOTT is very familiar with the quality of trails and terrain offered at the Resort as it is closely located to our North American headquarters in Salt Lake City. Deer Valley will provide a great finish to the race season."
Deer Valley Resort enlisted world-renowned bike park development company Gravity Logic to embark on the resort’s largest-ever investment to modernize and update its existing mountain biking trail system. During the summer of 2015, they built the incredibly popular flow trail, Tidal Wave, and made improvements to many existing trails. Deer Valley is continuing its expansion this summer with a new flow trail called Holy Roller. Fresh berms, rollers and jumps will leave no question as to why the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) dubbed Park City as a Gold-Level Ride Center, an honor that was reconfirmed in 2015.
"With the extensive upgrades to our mountain bike trails, it’s a great time to expand our event offerings as well," said Deer Valley Events and Promotions Manager, Carrie Westberg. "We are thrilled to be able to showcase our trail system and support the SCOTT Enduro Cup series."
The SCOTT Enduro Cup presented by Vittoria will award $12,000 cash to the podium place finishers in the open class at each race stop. Podium place amateur riders will be awarded with product provided by race sponsors.
