The North Shore Ripper Bike Fest's Adidas Eyewear Chainless DH
is followed with June the 9th's Specialized Euro Enduro
Following a wildly successful format of new school racing, riders are timed on three downhill sections of a classic Shore loop. They can get to the downhill sections however they want with the only limit that they have to get to downhill starts by a certain individually outlined time. The riders will only be timed for their descents. The 'race' is the combined time of the three descents. The spirit of the event is a great group ride with bragging rights for the DH sections.
The course map is here
. Riders were timed on the classic Shore descents
- Corkscrew, Pingu, Pangor
- Severed Dick, Shorn Scrotum (new connecting trail), C-Buster, Applicator
Masochists could also do an optional climb. Apparently there's a lot of people into self-flagellation as almost half the field opted to do the Specialized Ground Control Hill climb and walked away with tires.
