Notes for tomorrow's 2017 Dodge City Enduro.

The course is dialed and the weather's looking
good; we're looking forward to race day!

1) Sign in is from 9AM-10AM at the Number 6 Mine Park in Cumberland. Please park in the CRI
parking lot to avoid congestion on Derwent Ave.

There is no day of registration.

2) Start times:

Beginners: 11AM start
Intermediates and Experts: 11:15AM start.

Rider meeting for all categories is at 10:50AM. Attendance is mandatory.

Intermediates and Experts MUST wait until they are directed to start climbing. Any riders caught
leaving early will be issued a time penalty.

3) We've worked hard to come up with a game plan that will make full use of the race course at all
times and avoid the usual bottlenecks. Each category will ride the course in a different order. Please
familiarize yourself with the stage order you'll be riding:

Beginners: Stage 4 (Scat > Lower Crafty), Stage 1 (Bear Buns > Broadway)

Intermediates: Stage 3 (Truffle > 42nd > Off Broadway), Stage 4 (Scat > Lower Crafty), Stage 1
(Bear Buns > Broadway)

Experts: Stage 1 (Bear Buns > Broadway), Stage 2 (Numbskulls > Gravity > DCDH), Stage 3 (
Truffle > 42nd > Off Broadway), Stage 4 (Scat > Lower Crafty)

Find links to the Trailforks Courses on our event page - http://www.islandcupseries.com/event-pro/dodge-city-enduro/

We have stickers to put on your bike that indicate the order for each group. Stickers will be handed out
when you check in. Please pay close attention to the signage on your way to your next stage.

4) This year's course is more difficult than what we've used in the past. We know this is racing, but
please ride within your limits. If you haven't already ridden the course it's strongly suggested you preride.

5) The forecast is calling for hot weather. There will be an aid station at the Perseverance bridge
crossing, and a spot to put your pack, but riders should plan to be self sufficient and not rely solely on the aid station.

Stoked to see everyone out there tomorrow!
