About the Abajo Enduro.
This epic two-day, three stage enduro takes place in a hidden enclave of Utah’s best kept secret we call the Abajo Mountains of San Juan County, overlooking the Bears Ears National Monument.
If Southeastern Utah has you thinking desert, this enduro will give you a whole new perspective. With Monticello as the basecamp, you will be shuttled to each stage and in turn descend through pine, fir, aspen, and eventually red rock country. You will encounter double and single track, wicked fast flowy descents, and tech gnar. With only 50 racer slots, make sure you register early! You can expect a hot race!
Where can I find regular race updates?
Follow our event’s Facebook page: @abajoenduro18. As race day approaches please be sure to check this facebook page and/or your email. We will utilize both methods as our primary communication particularly if there are start time changes (typically due to weather or trail conditions).
Is there a cap on riders?
We only accept 50 riders for this race. If our racer cap has been met please join our waiting list, if you sign up early you’re likely to score a spot.

We accept junior racers 16 years of age and up. NICA racers will need to be aware of their league’s regulations regarding racing. Please note there is a monetary prize for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place.
What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?
Race day, all racers will park in Monticello. From there racers will be shuttled to all event stages and return to Monticello at the end of each day.
