Attitash Mountain Resort will be hosting some of New Hampshire’s premier mountain bike race events this summer including the Eastern States Cup as well as the new Double Down Race Series.

The Eastern States Cup, a regional championship series featuring two disciplines of mountain bike racing, enduro and downhill, will be returning to Attitash for the third consecutive summer. This year’s events will serve as New Hampshire’s Enduro State Championships on June 27-28 and Downhill Championships on August 29-30.

“We are excited to again be one of the New Hampshire venues for the Eastern States Cup events,” said Attitash Mountain Bike Programs Coordinator, Nate Waterhouse. “The events will feature exciting racing and fun weekends for the athletes and spectators.”

The enduro event will have riders competing against each other in timed stages that are designed to challenge the rider’s technical and physical abilities. Timed stages including downhill and climbing sections will utilize trails and terrain on Attitash and Bear Peak. The downhill event will feature riders competing in a single run format taking the best times in age and rider level categories. The course will be a mix of descending open trails and technical single-track sections through the woods on Attitash Mountain.

New this year, Attitash will also host its very own downhill event series – the Double Down Race Series on Saturdays July 18, August 15, and September 19. This three race series will feature new courses each week and competitors will have two race runs to achieve their best time in an attempt to stand on the podium at the conclusion of the day. Pro divisions will feature a cash purse provided by sponsor Midas of North Conway and amateur divisions will compete for prizes from other series sponsors.

Attitash Mountain Resort offers over 20 miles of mountain bike trails including technically challenging downhill trails and eight cross country trails for all abilities. Rental bikes, season passes, daily tickets, and full bike repair/tuning is available at the Dirt Trax Bike Shop in the Attitash Base Lodge.
