Stop #2 in the Vittoria Eastern States Cup Enduro Race Series. The race venue is in the town of Victory on the backside of Burke Mtn. at an area called The Victory Hill Sector. Technically not part of the Kingdom Trails system yet, but planned to connect in the future, the network is an outgrowth of efforts to improve the route of Kingdom Trails’ annual CircumBurke MTB Challenge and Marathon Trail Run. With at least 12 miles of singletrack and several two mile long descents, the Victory Hill Sector is ideal for racing. Sprawled over the southern slopes of Umpire Mountain, the site offers plenty of space for parking, event set-up, camping, hiking, and racing as well as adventure biking and backcountry skiing with virtually no local traffic near the site. The mountain side is prime habitat for moose and bear with Canadian Lynx sightings reported. Register online now!
