Trans-Sylvania Epic Announces New Enduro Jersey Competition

It Is All Downhill to Pennsylvania this Summer as Bear Creek and SRAM Bring Enduro Jersey Competition to the Trans-Sylvania Epic!


Bear Creek Ski Resort has joined forces with SRAM as the title partner of the weeklong enduro jersey competition at the NoTubes Trans-Sylvania Epic p/b Dirt Rag.  

Across the seven technical east coast stages from May 26-June 1, 2013 riders will have the chance to compete for a daily leaders jersey by way of one or more enduro segments placed on each stage.  Much like the sprinters jersey in a major road tour, the enduro jerseys offer a different goal than GC finish and may better suit certain athletes.  Rather than racing hard both up and down the endless PA ridges, Bear Creek/SRAM Enduro competitors can make the choice to cruise a little more casually until a segment start flag puts them back into race mode.  All participants are able to take part in the enduro competition whether riding at a relaxed pace or focused on the overall GC.

"This is something we’ve been working on since year one and we’re really excited to now have the technology to make a daily enduro competition happen.” said TSEpic co-director Ray Adams.  "TSE launched with an enduro type stage in the mix - the "mini-xcs/super-D” stage at RB Winter in years one and two -  but the format wasn’t quite what we wanted. We tweaked the competition and we are really happy with the result.  And we’re looking forward to handing the week’s enduro champs a nice Rock Shox to take home.”

To make sure that everyone has a chance to enjoy the enduro style of riding the new Stage 4 of the TSEpic, the Galbraith Gap Enduro Stage, is all enduro all the time.  Five separate timed sections with more than 3000 feet of drop and some of the most technical descents of the week dot this stage.  It should be noted though that participants need not rush to purchase full face gear and body armor for this enduro competition.  "While we are absolutely putting in some fast and technical descents, many segments have been part of TSEpic, xc events or the Wilderness 101 in the past.  You likely will be faster on a bike specific to the demands of the day, but special equipment won’t be necessary to get the fun out of the runs.” said TSEpic dictator for life Mike Kuhn.  He went on to add, "No matter how you approach it, the enduro format adds even more grins to the week.”

Three Bear Creek/SRAM Enduro Leaders Jerseys will be on offer in the 2013 Trans-Sylvania Epic with competitions in the Open Men’s, Open Women’s and "Everyone Else” categories.  The Open categories are self-explanatory while the "Everyone Else” category will compare daily results across the Duo, Epic Team, Single Speed, Master and even the Experience Category riders.
