The SCOTT Enduro Cup presented by Vittoria has officially announced the 2017 race schedule and opened registration to four race offerings throughout the Intermountain West. New for 2017, Round 4 at Deer Valley Resort will expand into a two-day race, and the pro/open category cash prize purse has been significantly increased over last year’s winnings. Round 2 at Angel Fire Resort will remain an Enduro World Series qualifier race.
“We were blown away by the talent and passion of the riders that came out to compete in 2016,” said Craig Alles SCOTT Enduro Cup Event Director. “To honor that, we have increased the pro/open cash prize purse and will be expanding the challenging season finale at Deer Valley Resort, into a two-day event. The diversity between each Enduro Cup course showcases the best all-around riders. We look forward to hosting you all again this year.”

With these fantastic venues, the expanded schedule, and now more prize money, there’s no doubt that these are THE races to hit in 2017, and SCOTT is proud to be a long-term event partner.”
