California Enduro Series 2013 Schedule Announcement

 The California Enduro Series is pleased to announce our 2013 race series schedule. Consisting of 4 events showcasing the amazing diversity of California’s terrain, the California Enduro Series will definitely have something for everyone.

The inaugural series will kick off April 6th in Southern California with Robert Herber and Eric Carter’s PCA Enduro event in Riverside, California.

"We are really excited to bring the California Enduro Series to Southern California! This will be the first time an enduro has been held at Box Springs Mountain Park and this venue is really going to impress a lot of people." says Robert Herber of the Progressive Cycle Association

The series then heads north for its second stop on April 27th for the VP / KALI EnduroFest in Los Olivos, California.

“Getting the CES off the ground with such a dedicated group has been very exciting and I look forward to it growing with  more great people and events.  The VP / KALI EnduroFest at the Dirt Club is going to be a great race for people to experience the fun and camaraderie that this format can provide.” says Erik Saunders, VP / KALI EnduroFest Event Director

 The series then travels up into the Sierra mountains for the third stop on June 29th at China Peak Mountain Resort.

“China Peak is relatively unknown to most mountain bikers, but with the amount of elevation, lift-access, and available terrain, it has the potential to host a killer enduro event. I‘m really looking forward to putting this one on!” says Evan Turpen of the China Peak Mountain Resort

The series then heads to the coast for the finals on October 12-13th in Santa Cruz, California.

"Mountain Bikers of Santa Cruz is stoked to bring the Santa Cruz Super Enduro back to the Demo forest as a 2 day event with a larger more inclusive field. We are building on the success and momentum of the Santa Cruz Mountain Bike Festival to create a fun atmosphere and a wicked event that riders will love! We are honored to be the season finale of the California Enduro Series and we'll put on a great celebration for our first year as part of the series." says Mark Davidson, Santa Cruz Super Enduro Event Director.

SANTA CRUZ, CA – December 12, 2012 – With the 2013 race season fast approaching, a dedicated group of riders, event promoters, and professionals have joined forces to create the California Enduro Series.

The California Enduro Series will host four major mountain bike enduro events in 2013 showcasing California’s best trails and venues. The series will bring a consistent, high-quality, and high-profile enduro racing experience to the state of California and give the riders, industry, and media a premier series to follow.

“Enduro racing is growing immensely worldwide and is set to explode. When I saw the lack of a major enduro race series here in California, I knew something had to be done and had to be done right,” says Evan Turpen, executive director of the California Enduro Series.

With this new series comes great responsibility. Luckily, the California Enduro Series is a for-riders, by-riders operation that has its finger on the pulse of enduro. The ultimate goal is to create world-class enduro events that everyone from pros to amateurs can enjoy and showcase the amazing locations that make California one of the best places to mountain bike on earth.

Slated for early Spring/Summer 2013, the official schedule will be released in January 2013.
