Yes, it’s back! The Whole Enchilada Enduro!
Yes, Its back! Timed descending on the world renowned Whole Enchilada Trail. A legal and permitted timed event on this iconic trail is available once again. We have removed as much climbing from the course as we feel necessary to make it a true enduro, that doesn’t favor the endurance athlete.
One shuttle, one day, three timed descents that start at 11,000 feet and descend 5,000 plus feet! This event is going to be amazing and most of all fun!
We will Shuttle from beautiful downtown Moab Utah to the top of Geyser Pass. (10,300 feet) From there, you will ride and or push your bicycle to the top of Burro Pass (11,200 feet). The start of the stage one is on the summit of Burro pass and will run all the way down to the big aspen meadow just before the irrigation ditch crossing that starts the climb up to Werner Lake. You will self transfer to the start of stage 2. Which is at the top of Hazard trail approximately 1/2 a mile past the Hazard parking lot.
Starts approximately 1/2 mile from the Hazard Trail parking lot on Hazard Trail after the short climb. It’s the spot where you pop out of the tress and can see the entire Moab Valley! The second stage includes, Hazard Trail, Kokopelli Trail, UPS Trail and LPS trail. Where LPS meets the Porcupine overlook (lunch spot) will be the end of Stage 2. After you participate in refreshments at the end of Stage 2, you will transfer down the Porcupine Rim Trail to the spot known as “It’s all downhill from here” for the start of Stage 3.
Racers will start at the spot known as “it’s all down hill from here” and descend down the Porcupine Rim Trail to the first set of ropes shortly after the “diving board”. The finish line for Stage 3 will be in the straight away before the ropes. Upon completing Stage 3 racers will ride the remaining single track down to the river road and then ride back to town from there.
*Special note on Stage 3: racers will not be allowed to use the sweet two track section that begins just after the start of Stage 3. ALL RIDERS MUST STAY ON THE TRADITIONAL PORCUPINE RIM TRAIL!!
