SANTA CRUZ – July 21, 2014 - Mountain Bikers of Santa Cruz (MBoSC) is proud to welcome BELL as Title Sponsor of the 2014 Santa Cruz Mountain Super Enduro (SCSE), which returns to Soquel Demonstration State Forest (SDSF) October 10-12. 2014 marks the third year that the Scotts Valley-based bicycle helmets manufacturer has partnered with this grassroots enduro event that raises funds for bike projects throughout Santa Cruz county. This world-wide industry leader’s generosity demonstrates their commitment to enduro and to the local mountain biking community.

200 registration spots are available in categories from beginner through pro. The event will cap off the California Enduro Series (CES) 2014 season. Early registration will be open to those racing the entire series on Monday, August 4 at 8pm. To qualify for CES early registration, participants must have raced both rounds 1 and 2 PLUS be registered for upcoming rounds 3 and 4 by Thursday, July 31 at midnight. Unused CES spots will be added to the SCSE general registration pool. General registration will open Monday, August 11 at 8pm. Last year’s event sold out in just over 2 hours with participants from all over California, as well as New Mexico, Utah, Ohio and Michigan.

Camping and weekend activities include food and beer, evening entertainment, fun rides, trail work and demos for racers, spectators and other enduro revelers. Volunteers are needed and will be well rewarded with camping, food, beer and swag.

The mission of SCSE is to support the demand for quality enduro race opportunities in California, to promote the world class mountain biking trails in Santa Cruz County and to bring awareness to the Santa Cruz community at large about mountain biking and the positive role it can play economically, socially and environmentally.

MBoSC thanks California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) Soquel Demonstration State Forest for their support of SCSE.

Sponsorships are available to those interested in partnering with SCSE to build on its success and contribute toward the growth of the Santa Cruz cycling community; contact sponsors@santacruzsuperenduro.com for more information.
