CDC Round 4 Tiger Mountain Enduro

The highly anticipated and sold out 4th round of the Cascadia Dirt Cup headed to a sunny and dry Tiger Mountain. A welcome change from last year.

In a collaboration between Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance(EMBA) and Department of Natural Resources(DNR) to increase the Tiger trail system to roughly 25 miles; there has been 4 new trails established over the last 2 years. The newest trail, Off-the-Grid, opened just weeks before race day. DNR’s construction of the Off-the-Grid Trail with the help of EMBA volunteers were funded through a grant from the state’s Non-highway and Off-Road Vehicle Activities Program. DNR also has secured grant funding to build two additional trails to complete the next phase of its expansion with one trail being labeled as a "technical descending trail." The CDC donated $4000 to help in these efforts.
