We are kicking off the weekend with the newest hottest racing style and putting our own Vulture's Knob twist an Enduro race on Saturday, expect five stages to rise out of the Kilbuck Valley like you've never seen before! We are going to unveil some new lines, turn some backwards, maybe even a couple sideways to give you a unique new event at VK!

After the Enduro we are going to light the bonfire pile that has been building for two years and party into the night (primitive camping is available for free and encouraged!) Sunday we will wake up convert the course back to what you know and love and do what we do best XC racing on the full course! (don't worry we'll leave the over under out for this round) !

Remember...the Vulture helped launch and establish the sport over 15 years ago. However, this has not always been the case; this venue was once a county farmers land fill. The 331 Crew has accepted the environmental challenge no one else dared to consider and turned it into a sustainable venture with mountain bike and running trails, a 6 acre mulch and organic food waste facility, and evergreen tree farm with several thousand trees. We aim to continue our efforts to clean and develop this once useless 125 acres.

The established facility contains parking, permanent restrooms and shower facilities, primitive camping areas, a staging area with pavilion at the start finish line that provides the backbone for a network of challenging single track and technical trails. Over 100 races have been run at the Knob including epic 12 hour and 24 hour races, adventure races along with the popular cross-country race series. The facilities are open 365 days a year for open riding and camping. Thousands of people from all over the country visit Vulture's Knob year round, not just to race, but for the daily open riding, it is the most reviewed trail in Ohio according to mountain bike trail review pages.
