After the SuperTour resumes Feb. 7-9 in Craftsbury, Vt., it will move to the Midwest, where Endurance United is excited to announce it is hosting the series from Feb. 15-16 at Battle Creek Park in Saint Paul, Minn.
“We, Endurance United, are super pumped to be hosting the SuperTour at Battle Creek Park,” Endurance United Executive Director Chris Sachs says. “Battle Creek is widely known as a premier competition course in the Midwest and the past couple of years these races had to be moved to other locations due to poor snow conditions, but not this year. The 2014 edition is aptly named the ‘Battle Creek SuperTour’ as we are excited to showcase this venue and put on a wonderful event! The Battle Creek SuperTour is the weekend before the Birkie and this year both our race and the Birkie are part of the SuperTour Series, thus it makes perfect sense for elite racers to come to the Midwest for both weekends of premier racing. This race is also a Junior National Qualifier and the SuperTour and JNQ athletes have until Tuesday Feb. 11th at 11:59pm to register! So do not delay! This race also incorporates youth, high school, college and citizen category racing. These categories have until Thursday Feb. 13 at 8pm to register online. So we hope everyone registers ASAP and them comes out on February 15th and 16th to do ‘Battle at the Creek’ at the Battle Creek SuperTour!”
