The Big Mountain Enduro Series is an authentic multi-stage, multi-day annual Enduro series throughout the most picturesque vacation destinations in Colorado, Utah and New Mexico. This much anticipated competition offers some of the biggest and most challenging terrain in and around these mountainous landscapes. With many of the top-ranked trails in the country, races will follow a mix of the European formats; tying in epic backcountry Enduros on big terrain, as well as lift-accessed stages blended in along the way. Courses will feature predominantly downhill timed “special” stages linked together by non-timed liaison climbing stages. This rapidly growing discipline combines the physical endurance of cross-country riding with the technical difficulty and excitement of downhill racing.
The 2013 Big Mountain Enduro Series will encompass over 45,000 vertical feet of descending world-class singletrack throughout the entire season. Each course is specially designed to give participants unique riding experiences, including high altitude trails and long descents that will test athlete’s pure strength, endurance and bike handling skills. In sum, this unprecedented series will showcase some of the best trails in North America, while hosting many of the top all-around mountain bikers from across the globe, ultimately catering to all types of riders in an entertaining atmosphere for the entire family and local communities to enjoy.
The Crested Butte Enduro will be something to remember for racers and spectators alike. This special place holds the longest running bike festival in the country, is home to the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame and truly is a real mountain town with more singletrack than any other location in the US. Legend has it, that Crested Butte is the birthplace of mountain biking. Our weekend-long events will merge with Crested Butte Bike Week and entail some of the longest descents within the area. Expect to ride some of the most challenging and scenic courses on the North American tour, which will blend high altitude backcountry adventures and lift-accessed stages throughout the weekend.
