Keystone Summer Race Series - Enduro and Ascent
Ends Thursday, August 16, 2012 at 8:00 PM (MDT)
WHAT IS ENDURO?Enduro is a relatively new format which appears to have taken some inspiration from both car rally and motorbike enduro racing. Mountain bike enduro is essentially the competitive side of the mountain biking format often referred to today as "All-Mountain". Due to this eclectic combination of attributes, enduro racing is increasingly recognised as the truest test of the all-round mountain biker. The sport has taken root in mostly in the Northwest of United States, a location known for its miles of winding single-track trails alongside old growth forest and bubbling creeks.
WHAT IS ASCENT? An Ascent Race is an uphill race against the clock (also referred to as "the race of truth"). Winning depends only on each rider's strength and endurance, and not on help provided by team-mates and others riding ahead and creating a slipstream. Starting times are at equal intervals, usually one or two minutes apart. The rider with the fastest time is declared the winner.
