The third leg of the North American Enduro Series (NAES) has found its home on the slopes of Snow Summit, in Big Bear Lake, California. In typical “series soup” fashion, the race is one of six stops on the California Enduro Series calendar, and the inaugural west coast home of Fox US Open of Mountain Biking. The event’s tagline might read, “With good beer and trails on tap, why don’t we all just party in the same place?”

The first two races of the 2019 NAES series visit Eureka Springs, Arkansas, and Revelstoke, Canada, leaving all of the celebratory duties to the final event at Snow Summit. The EWS says this historical California hillside “promises to offer a thrilling conclusion to the series, with riders tackling everything from technical singletrack to big jumps that will push rider’s skills and fitness levels to the max. And alongside world-class enduro racing, there is plenty on offer for fans as well as competitors with downhill, dual slalom, youth races, and live music on offer to make sure the season goes out in style.”

We’re really looking forward to hosting the Fox US Open on the west coast for the first time in our 16 year history!  Not only is Big Bear Lake a beautiful location, the town has deep roots in mountain bike racing, having played host to some famous NORBA Nationals back in the day. Snow Summit Resort is investing in their bike park and we like their long term vision… also they know how to throw a good party, so we’re feeling right at home! – Clay Harper, Fox US Open of Mountain Biking

    Ugh. I’ll make sure to get my park laps in early this year; the trails will be destroyed after this.
