OverMountain Results | Triple Crown Enduro Finals

Photos and words by: Jeb Wallace-Brodeur Against a tapestry of autumnal foliage, and with winter knocking on the door, the Triple Crown Eastern Enduro Series wrapped up this past weekend with a wild day of racing at Highland Mountain in New Hampshire. Nearly 150 racers battled the weather and the competition to claim podium spots for the third leg of the series and the overall Triple Crown title. Rain soaked the mountain on Saturday afternoon and temperatures hovered around 40 degrees with a stiff north wind on race morning, but riders were unfazed and ready to roll when start times were called. The first stage was the longest of the day and incorporated the rugged, rolling steeps of Faux Pine followed by the rambling Stump Line and the pedally 820.

Closure for Trail Maintenance and Lift Service

Highland Mountain Bike park will be closed next week, Monday, August 15th–Wednesday, August 17th and will re-open on Thursday August 18th. Highland will be working in conjunction with the New Hampshire Tramway board to make necessary enhancements to our chairlift. Additional anchors will be installed to the summit terminal. These anchors will increase the safety of the chairlift by approximately three times the State of New Hampshire requirement. While the chairlift terminal is being enhanced, the trail crew will be working round the clock to perform trail maintenance throughout the mountain. We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience. Highland will be open the remainder of August everyday! There is still lots of riding left for the 2016 season. Check out our Calendar of events for all the Highland happenings this season. We are lucky to have such an amazing community of riders who support Highland year after year! #Americasbikepark
