As one of the founders of the Ashland Super D, the Oregon Enduro team is happy to bring the Ashland Enduro back into the fold. This historic venue will play host to round #4 of the series and promises to be one of the most exciting stops on the schedule. The traditional top to bottom stages, starting at just over 7000 feet on Mt. Ashland and descending 5500 feet in to Lithia Park will be in used.  The trails in Ashland vary from tight rocky single track to wide open double track and a few jumps thrown in for fun.

The Expo Area will be at the top of Lithia park near the Granite Street Reservoir, 1.4 miles from the Downtown Plaza on Main Street. Lithia Park is the corner stone of Ashland and hosts many of the towns noteworthy events. Unfortunately Alcohol is not allowed in Lithia park, however we will have complimentary beer at  the podium/awards area just a short walk up Granite St, towards Horn Gap Rd. on Forest Service property. Ashland is not only home to the world famous Oregon Shakespearean Festival but also boasts several great restaurants and coffee shops.

Special Stage #1 – Course Start to Split #1
Special Stage #2 – Split #2 to Split #3
Special Stage #3 – Split #3 to Split #4/Finish
Bonus Stage (25pts) – Split #1 to Split #2 (the Climb)

Basically this is a Super D style race with the long climb removed by having a split time at the bottom of the climb and at the top. Racers will have to keep riding through the climb.
