Maaxx Events: B-Maaxx and Enduro-Maaxx Round 2

Jul 12, 2016
by Maaxx Events  
The racers were back at the Bromont venue last weekend for the second round of the Maaxx Events racing series. Up first was Saturday's B-Maaxx downhill race that began on one of the fastest sections of trail on the hill, the 51. The course was littered with high-speed berms and doubles putting basic skill sets to the test. On Sunday morning, the Enduro-Maaxx race had riders climbing the 56 towards Humus for the first stage, the 88 was the second drop in, and finally the third stage was a new trail that gained a lot of popularity quickly, Mordor.

Enduro-Maaxx Round 2

The Enduro-Maaxx series is not only a great way to challenge yourself but also allows you to explore new tracks and terrain that are otherwise uncommon to the average rider at Bromont. The hidden gems for round 2 were Humus,88, and finally Mordor. These three trails combined made for some very exciting racing.

Tight twists and turns found on every stage. Not much to say about line choice other that a few spots.

Natural features like rock wall rides and rollers pear through in Mordor.

 I was there on the saturday, it was my first time experiencing with dh. I was like a kid, so excited.. I had the chance to ride bing bang #7 twice, before heading to the x-ray.. it was still worth the 6h drive, but haven't ride my bike since then and I feel dead inside.

 Hope you didn't crash because of their poor bridges conditions.

 @jr466: I did crach on a bridge, but that was all my bad.. I am not used to bike park, but I thought it was the best thing I ever ride, regardless of the "bad" conditions. You guys are lucky to have such a place! The nearest to home is MSA and it's not open yet for chairlift rides..
