This is a challenging & hard enduro race on beautiful Silver Mountain in Kellogg, Idaho. The terrain is steep, treed, and rocky in places, with elevations reaching over 6,100 feet. Not a racer, but want to come check out the action? Most of the mountain is accessible by chairlifts, which make for great spectator viewing of this event. So make sure to bring your whole family to join in on the fun!
