The Big Mountain Enduro Series Presented by Yeti Cycles, is an authentic multi-stage, multi-day annual Enduro series throughout the most picturesque vacation destinations in the Rocky Mountain region. This highly anticipated sports entity 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, BME races tie in epic backcountry Enduros on big terrain, as well as combining lift-accessed stages throughout the series. Courses will feature predominantly timed downhill (special) stages linked together by non-timed climbing (liaison) stages. This rapidly growing discipline combines the physical endurance of cross-country riding with the technical difficulty and excitement of downhill racing.
The Crested Butte five-day Enduro is not for the faint of heart. Repeat, not for the faint of heart and you must be in great physical condition and have expert level bike handling skills. Riders will be challenged with five days of racing, four of those days deep in the backcountry, with big climbing transitions that will literally take you to the top of the world overlooking majestic peaks. The fifth and final day of racing will be held at Evolution Bike Park, also where awards and festivities will culminate. This special gem of a place tucked deep in the Rockies and surrounded by wilderness, holds the longest running bike festival in the country and is a true mountain town with more miles of singletrack than any other location in the US. Legend has it, that Crested Butte is the birthplace of mountain biking and we are going to take you back to the roots of riding big mountains at high elevations around Crested Butte.
