Endurance Series

Redefining what's possible on a bike

Steely determination required

The I-Cup Endurance Series is designed to blow your mind with amazing scenery and fantastic trails. Each course generally consists of 1 lap of roughly 20 miles. Elite and Expert riders do 2 laps (roughly 40 miles). Sport and Junior riders do 1 lap. These courses are not for the faint of heart, but with a little bit of training and lot of grit riders will love what the I-Cup Endurance Series has in store for them.

What can I expect from an endurance style race? These long distance mountain biking races are designed to test the resolve of each participant. Some rider will be aiming for the fastest time possible. For other just finishing will be a grand feat. Endurance trails can range from open fire roads to winding narrow single-tracks that will test the rider’s endurance and technical handling skills.

Advancing to a Higher Category

Endurance riders can advance to a higher category and retain 75% of his/her points IF the move is made BEFORE the start of the 2nd race of the series. If the advancement takes place after that point the rider will retain only 25% of his/her previous points when advancing.

It is the riders’s responsibility to notify I-Cup of a category advancement.  Please notify us at info@intermountaincup.com and include your full name, plate number, old category, and new category.

When to Advance

An Endurance rider should advance to the next division (i.e. Sport to Expert) after placing in the top 5 in 2 X-Country races with a field size of 20 or more. Riders may advance as quickly as they wish but may not downgrade unless approved by I-Cup. Become a better rider by advancing sooner than required.

Team Points Calculations & Guidelines

Team points will be a calculated by combining both the Endurance Series and X-Country Series points for each team.

After every race the points of the top 12 points earners from each registered team will be awarded to the team’s point total. The team MUST BE REGISTERED with ICUP in order to receive points and the rider MUST SELECT THEIR TEAM AT REGISTRATION for points to be counted. A rider who changes teams during the season cannot take their points with them to their new team but can start to earn points for their new team once they register under the new team name. A team can be created and register at any point in the season but points will not be retroactively added to the team points total.
