It has been too many years since the last MTB race was held in Blue Diamond and there has never been an Enduro race at this location! To say the local racers are stoked would be a huge understatement. If you have not ridden here you are in for a treat with fast trails, scenery galore, and a 3-stage Enduro race.No Pro license needed to race for the cash!

Almost all of the Las Vegas and Boulder City bikes shops threw in $200 for the Pro/Open cash purse. A huge thanks to All Mountain Cyclery, McGhie's, Irwin's Cycles, Pro Cyclery, Southwest Bikes, Giant of Las Vegas and Las Vegas Cyclery. This adds up to a whopping $1,400 cash purse for the combined Pro/Open category. To top it off, local company, Trucker Co is adding $100 cash for the fastest Junior Expert (Category 1/15-18 ). Cash total is currently at $1,500 and prizes are plentiful. There will be a DVO raffle for all participants during the awards ceremony. All racers have a chance to win a DVO Diamond fork valued at $750! For such a large city, this example of working together is very welcoming and hopefully the new norm.

"I 1st rode here about 18 years ago. I could not believe the beauty and the sensation of riding my mountain bike in a postcard-like setting. Each time I would ride, I would feel like one very lucky and fortunate person. Now, 18 years later, I/we wish for you to experience these select trails while racing with your friends".
