Ashland Mountain Challenge • Saturday & Sunday, July 11-12 • Lithia Park, Ashland

The Ashland Mountain Challenge, presented by Ashland Mountain Adventures, is a welcome addition to the California Enduro Series. Running just across the California state line in Oregon, this event debuted in 2010 as a Super D, shifting to Enduro in 2012. The Ashland Mountain Challenge is well known for being a great time on big mountain trails, and the folks with Ashland Mountain Adventures put on an outstanding event.

Event organizer “Wild Bill” Roussel says, “We are very excited to team up with CES. The 2015 series schedule includes several ‘big venues’ and we believe Ashland will hold up to those same great standards. We’re working hard to get our trails dialed for next year and hope to have an even bigger event with a more challenging course for the racers!”

Casey Coffman, 2014 series Pro fourth place finisher, adds, “I’m happy to see the CES schedule retain the great events from last year, while adding the Ashland Mountain Challenge, one of my personal favorites. Bill and Sue at Ashland Mountain Adventures are good friends, and have done a lot for the mountain biking community.”
