EWS Sugarbush | Liv Racing Report
with RAE MORRISON
A short 3-hour drive from the last stop of the Enduro World Series in Burke, Vermont, Sugarloaf is a resort mountain in the Carrabassett Valley of Maine. Although Sugarloaf has seen regional downhill and enduro races in the past, new trails were crafted specifically for the EWS by local legend and Giant ambassador Adam Craig.
Sugarloaf was the last stop on a grueling run of three back-to-back EWS races in North America. But Rae Morrison of the Liv Racing Collective was thriving despite the fatigue. After a 9th place finish in Whistler and 8th in Burke, Rae seemed to have her recovery game on lock and was poised to perform in Maine.
“Despite all the racing, I was feeling really good before the race,” said Rae. “My body felt strong, and I was looking forward to another new venue. I had a couple of days to chill out, go on spins and track walk before the racing started to ramp up.”
Rae managed the rocks, roots, ruts, and weather well over the two days of racing, finishing with her best result of the season in 6th.
Before the focus returns to Europe for the final two EWS races of the year in a couple of weeks, take a look back at Sugarloaf with Rae below.
