Coeur d'Alene Introduces 2 Day Enduro

PRESS RELEASE: Coeur d’Alene Enduro

The inaugural Coeur d’Alene Enduro is a two-day camp-style mountain bike race on Canfield Mountain, CDA’s local trail system. Scheduled for July 7-8 2018, CDA Enduro is the Inland Northwest’s newest addition to the popular enduro race scene, and it was inspired by the vibe and success of one of the greatest mountain bike events on the planet: Trans-Cascadia.

Canfield Mountain s iconic Cave Trail

Canfield Mountain is easily accessible from the heart of Coeur d’Alene, but the trails themselves have the feel of a backcountry adventure. You’ll camp near the trailhead for two full days of earning your turns on rowdy singletrack (including one never-ridden, completely blind stage!), and be rewarded with a bonfire, beverages, a dinner for the racers, and a few more tricks up our sleeve to write home about.

Coeur d’Alene Enduro is committed to providing an exceptional race experience, and we feel that trail stewardship and sustainability is essential to our local mountain bike community. We have partnered with the U.S. Forest Service to build and maintain the trails that we’ll be racing on, and for the future use and enjoyment by everyone who values our outdoor recreation resources. We’ll be hosting several work parties to get the singletrack shred-ready this summer; stay tuned for the work party dates and come give us a hand!

 Grew up riding Canfield on my rigid Raleigh Technium, broken thumb shifter, plastic flat pedals. Great place to grow up riding. Learned to ride mud, roots, shale rocks, loam...it's got it all. Great to see an event like this in town. If anyone has questions feel free to hit me up on the side. beer!

 @cdaenduro Is this a blind 2-day race or is Saturday practice and Sunday race?

 We'll announce the stages a week prior to the race. We'll race saturday and sunday. The final stage of the race will be blind, and unless someone has worked on the trail no racers will have ever ridden it.

 Looks amazing. And the truth of it is there is a TON of great riding in the Idaho area. If you haven't been here it needs to be on your list.

 Tim, there is two full days of racing, a rider/volunteer dinner, camping for out of town racers, beer, and many other things that make this race well worth $135.

 @cdaenduro: Just drink $135 worth of beer and give up on the race

 I signed up for the Beacon and Mt. Spokane Enduro races, both nearly half the cost of this. I'd love to do this but can't fork out that much

 From the TransCascadia website: "Each participant will be provided with their own solo tent and sleeping pad – set up for them at each basecamp, a reusable camp plate, utensils, and cup to lessen the impact on the environment, and more – new for 2018 – swag! Gourmet breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be provided daily by a hand-selected team of top chefs from Portland – each showcasing their own specialty nightly. The bar will be open and serving beer and cocktails nightly as racers from around the world socialize around the campfire like long lost friends sharing the highs and often comical lows of the day."
