The Northstar Livewire Classic Enduro capped off the 2014 Northstar Enduro Bike Race Series at Northstar California Resort in Truckee Sunday, August 30.
Taking place the day before the wildly popular Livewire Classic (final event of the Northstar Downhill Mountain Bike Race Series), this event drew a significant number of gravity enthusiasts.
The 19 mile course featured premier high Sierra riding, with 2900′ of descending. Stage 1 took place on Livewire, Northstar’s premier jump trail. Stage 2 was a 5 mile grinder with a lot of flattish pedaling and a lung searing fire road climb to the finish for a little extra kick. Stage 3 featured fast, flowy trail with jumps, g’d out berms, some jumps, and two long and low senders into the finish. Notably absent from the race course was any of the steep, super tech rocky terrain that Northstar is known for. Though the course was a bit controversial, most racers agreed that it was a good day on the bike.
