The series then travels up into the Sierra mountains for the third stop on June 29th at China Peak Mountain Resort.
“China Peak is relatively unknown to most mountain bikers, but with the amount of elevation, lift-access, and available terrain, it has the potential to host a killer enduro event. I’m really looking forward to putting this one on!” says Evan Turpen of the China Peak Mountain Resort.
Mtbr had the chance to ask Evan some additional questions, too:
Q: What is the most compelling or best features of China Peak?
Evan Turpen: “The terrain. The 1,700 vertical of lift accessible mountain with the 10+ trails that we already have. Our large flat base area is perfect for hosting events. We have on-site accommodation that sleeps 140+ at the China Peak Inn. We’ve also got a nice restaurant and bar, bike rental/service shop, RV camping, and paved parking for 2,000 vehicles.”
Q: What do you feel that China Peak offers to racers (and riders) that no other resort has?
Evan Turpen: “-it- Once you go there you’ll understand…
-The laid back vibe.
-The Sierra mountains.
-The beautiful 7-mile long lake.
-The awe-inspiring views.
-The mountain air.
-The stars at night!
-The waterfalls, the hot-springs, the hikes, the swimming holes.
-Horseback riding, moto, 4X4, fishing, hunting, boating, skiing, wakeboarding, sailing, road-riding, jet-skiing, kayaking, or just plain old relaxing.
-It is and always has been a vacation destination. Somewhere you can take your family and everybody has something they can enjoy.
-I guess that sums it up!”
