SUN VALLEY, ID (July 2, 2017) — More than 180 athletes gathered in Ketchum, ID on July 1-2, 2017 at the Ride Sun Valley Bike Festival to race Round 3 of the SCOTT Enduro Cup presented by Vittoria. After one of the most scenic and grueling rounds in the series, Cody Kelley of Salt Lake City, UT and Cooper Ott of Crested Butte, CO each took their respective podiums. The annual Ride Sun Valley Bike Festival is a celebration of life on two wheels. The four-day festival is host to endurance, skill and learning based events centralized around all things cycling including the SCOTT Enduro Cup presented by Vittoria.

The weekend weather was perfect for races with cool morning temps, warm breezy days and mostly sunny skies. A heavy snowpack protected the trails from early season damage as Sun Valley Resort was just opening their lifts to bikers on July 1. On Saturday, riders raced three timed stages located on the steep slopes of Sun Valley Resort. The day’s three stages featured a mix of flowy fast switchbacks and loose rocky terrain descending 6,345 vertical feet. The second day, Sunday, featured two rugged backcountry stages that tested the riders’ endurance with two long stages and big transfer stages in between.
