From our friends at Trail Party Promotions:

It’s here folks. The one we’ve been working on all year…THE RACE DOWN SPIDER MOUNTAIN!

Located just outside Burnet Texas on Lake Buchanan, Spider Mountain boasts the biggest elevation drop of all other Texas Enduro venues (both series) Because of this we couldn’t just go about our regular trail building ways. We had to spice this one up to a level 11. The three unique trails that will be used for most racers will be unequaled and unlike anything else you will ride in the area. We aren’t just saying that, it’s actually the truth. The beginner class will have a slightly different set of courses to ensure safe and fun racing.
