Maple Mountain Enduro – Island Cup Series Race Recap

Maple Mountain, known for its rocky technical trails, big loops, and beautiful forests brought a new set of challenges to the last race of the season.

The Maple Mountain Enduro set the stage for a challenging race to not only to hail the fastest racer of the day but crown the fastest racer of the year. The overall title in each category was still up for grabs as racers competed and pushed themselves one last time for the 2022 season.

With 6 stages to race, each with dusty blown-out corners, surprise hill sprints, and technical rock sections the Nolan Riding Race Team braced for the most fitness-demanding races of the season. The stages were:


Stage 1 – Upper Maple Syrup

Stage 2 – Lower Maple Syrup

Stage 3 – Phloem into Solar Coaster

Stage 4 – Upper Story Trail

Stage 5 – Tony’s Arbutus Ridge

Stage 6 – Loggers Lane
