CDC Round 3


July 29-30, 2023 | Olympia, WA


The North Slope Enduro will be staged out of the A5000/A-Line cossing above stormy and bowfinger. Unfortunately due to repairs happening at the ORV moto park, we are not able to secure out usual space this year. Thankfully for future years, the county is excited for the CDC to return as soon as their repairs are finished, so bear with us for this round, and we'll be back to our usual program soon.

In the mean time there are also several great camp grounds and KOA's in the area for your convenience


FOOD + WATER - Bring more than you think you'll need! Plan to carry at least 50 ounces  of water on you at all times while riding, plus carb and protein rich snacks to have on hand throughout the day. The aid station on course is not intended to be your sole support, it's intended for water top-offs and  food to supplement you. Proper preparation goes a long way in preventing emergencies on race day.

HELMETS / BODY PROTECTION Helmets must be worn at all times while on course, on both the transfers and race stages. If you're pedaling you must have your helmet securely fastened or risk disqualification. A full face helmet is highly suggested, but not mandatory. Additional body protection to consider are gloves, knee pads, eye protection, neck braces, chest protection, elbow guards, etc.

COURSE MAP Download the Trailforks App to your mobile device with updated regional maps including the event course links released on Wednesday evening of race week; if you do not have a mobile write down the course details with stage names and order to carry with you during the event, found in the race guide or on the information board in the main venue.​

TRASH - Pack it in, pack it out. Please help us keep the forest clean while we're guests at the race venue. 
TOOLS - Pack a small tool kit with puncture repair kit + multi tool for on the fly trailside repairs
- Consider a basic first aid kit with sunscreen, bug spray and bandaids to take care of the bites, burns, stings and things. A waterproof jacket, emergency blanket and whistle area all good ideas too!


Wednesday, July 27 Course announced by 9 PM on our website and social media feeds

Friday, July 28 Course marked  by 2pm  for unsanctioned practice, including Sunday youth race courses​; There is NO SHUTTLING permitted at North Slope. Only racers in the E-bike category are allowed to practice on E-bike. It's grounds for disqualification if anyone not racing in the E-Bike category ride E-bike for any portion of practice. Sunday youth racers who can't make the Friday practice are welcome to practice Saturday AFTER the race. Please check in with us at the race venue to make sure the course is cleared. If the podiums are underway, everyone is back in and you're free to start pedaling up. Again, no shuttling is permitted at North Slope Friday through Sunday for this event.

Friday 3-6 PM Pickup your race packet after practice in the event venue, then join us for Happy Hour + Volunteer Appreciation with Friends of Capitol Forest

It's every racer's responsibility to read the rulebook prior to racing. If we

haven't mentioned it here in the race guide, it's probably in the rulebook:
