Round 1: May 9 Battle Born Enduro – SOLD OUT

Battle Born Enduro • Saturday, May 9 • Peavine Mountain in the Reno/Tahoe area

SOLD OUT IN LESS THAN 3 DAYS!

The Battle Born Enduro — a fundraiser for The Poedunks benefiting local trail projects — will once again kick off the California Enduro Series, challenging racers on the desert trails of Peavine Mountain, just across the California border in Nevada, with loose, sandy single track, rocky technical descents, and punchy climbs—a great start to the 2015 series.

“Peavine is a favorite riding spot of the locals for its challenging and narrow trails,” explains event organizer Kevin Joell. “We’re pleased to introduce it to new users through the Battle Born Enduro, and support the work of the Poedunks to continue mining Peavine’s singletrack.”

Local rider Steven Lewis is looking forward to the 2015 kick off, adding “When the California Enduro Series announced the first race of their 2014 season, I was elated to find out it was in my backyard. What I did not expect was the close family feel the entire group of CES staff and racers gave me. After the Battle Born Enduro, I decided to sign up for the entire series—I was hooked!” Indeed he was. Lewis went on to race all five events, taking second place in series for Expert Men 19-35, and he is planning to race Pro in 2015.
