Welcome to Revolution Enduro! Whether you’re new to mountain bike racing and looking to build your skills, or an experienced rider ready to race for the podium, Revolution Enduro offers events at renowned trail centers and ride destinations that appeal to all rider levels.
The definition of Enduro mountain bike racing is that the descents are are timed, and the uphills are not. The timed descents are called Stages. Racers must ride to the start of Stage, this called a Transfer, typically uphill and not timed. Some event venues offer chair lift transfers, or vehicle-shuttle transfers to access more remote back country areas that will be raced.
Revolution Enduro offers a sampling of everything; pedal transfers, lift, and shuttles to get you to the stage-start. Enduro may be mountain biking in its most basic form, a casual spin (or chair lift) ride to the top with friends old and new, with high-fives before the ride down!
Progression is a key foundation of Revolution Enduro. Riding and racing your bike is something we do for fun. The season is designed to build skill and confidence with the inclusion of progressively more challenging trails in a relaxed race environment. The series starts off at Buffalo Creek, Colorado to offer a sampling of the enduro race format for the “enduro curious” while offering a pinner, no brake race opportunity for expert level racers.
All races are professionally timed, and have marked courses that are permitted for the races, professional emergency staff, lot’s of fun swag and prizes, lunch and beverages. Race ages start at the 10-13, Youth Category up to Men’s 50+ Category, and Pro. Bring the family, or bring yourself, for a day or weekend of Revolution Enduro racing!
Points will be awarded to the top 30 finishers in each category for every event that is raced in Revolution Enduro series. One race can be dropped. Points will be tallied from the three highest finish placements to determine the overall series champions. The series winners will be announced and awarded at the series Finale.
Some venues will offer mass-start by category for pedal Transfers to ride to a Stage Start, and other venues will start the day with lift service if racing at a resort. All racer Stage Starts are individual, from a start gate, every 30 seconds. We schedule category start times so that you race within your category.
