The Rocky Mountain Super Enduro in Woodland Park is part of the Pikes Peak Speedweek in 2016. Hosted by the Dirt Riders of Colorado, the Rocky Mountain Super Enduro (Woodland Park, Colorado) will take place on Saturday June 25th and will be an exciting day of Off-Road motorcycle racing you can watch ! Highlighting the South Central Colorado event will be Kawasaki factory rider Destry Abbott and Factory Husqvarna rider Cooper Abbott. Coloarado native Dustin Hedwall will also compete in the Pro class. We hope to ad a few more national know Pro riders in the next few weeks.
Super Enduro, the same type of course and format as an Endurocross, will be held outdoors at the Ute Pass Saddle Club on Hwy 24 in almost downtown Woodland Park. Woodland Park is 25 minutes West of Hwy 25 and Colorado Springs at 9,000 feet above sea level. Kicking off Pikes Peak Speedweek was an ideal opportunity to step up and support the newest type of off-road motorcycle racing on the planet for the Dirt Riders of Colorado. Super Enduro is a hybrid course, a combination of Supercross, Enduro, trials and Motocross and was invented indoors in Spain not many years ago.
The Mallet Excavating built course will have “Log hills”, Giant tires, Boulder’s in turns, logs and rocks in turns, log whoop -de-dos, jumps as super strenuous obstacles for the riders to tackle.
Dirt Rider of Colorado club members say; “The Rocky Mountain Super Enduro will bring the region’s best riders into the heart of the Colorado Rockies the day before the PPIHC. Arguably considered the most physically demanding and challenging sport in the world, Super Enduro is synonymous with the motorsports in the same vein as the Pikes Peak International Hillclimb. The South Central Colorado roots of both entities, and Pikes Peak influential legacy in motorsports, makes an ideal fit for Super Enduro’s visit to Woodland Park.
As part of the intrigue of the races, both the Pro and Amateur classes will compete in a ‘Super Final’, with the Pro’s battling for a $4500.00 purse and the amateurs all battling in a separate Super Final for a $500.00 dollar payout. The event will also host a Women’s class, Vet and Senior riders and a Trialcross class for trials bikes not normally raced in this type of format. All classes will compete for a Holeshot award from the My Door Company, whose owner will also be competing. The My Door Company Holeshot Award will be paid in all 6 Amateur classes and the Pro class.
Several competitors will include familiar names to longstanding fans of Motorsports, and will put on a show for the Woodland Park spectators with Moto’s from 11 am to 3:30 pm. The whole day could be spent by spectators in the shadow of the iconic Pikes Peak.
Concessions will be offered by the local service organizations and there will be a beer garden by BierWerks with a nice view of the racing.
Riders will compete on 125-450cc motorcycles in the Open A or Open B class Classes and the Pro, Vet, Senior and Open classes are all Open displacement, meaning open to any size of engine which will provide for exciting races, as each section of the Course could suite a different displacement of motorcycle.
In addition to the Rocky Mountain Super Enduro, Pikes Peak Speedweek will also provide Motorsports enthusiasts with a chance to check out all the vehicles racing up Pikes Peak in the Broadmoor Pikes Peak International Hillclimb at the World Arena on Monday at Tech Inspection. Tuesday through Thursday will be practice sessions on various parts of the Mountain. Friday in Downtown Colorado Springs is a motorsports enthusiast’s dream date as many competitors will be gathered to show off their race vehicles and sign autographs in Downtown Colorado Springs at Fanfest.
