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 Durango Enduro is not for the timid; it is a true backcountry event that will require riders to have moderate to excellent fitness and great bike handling skills on steep, technical terrain. Each of our multiple stages will have a distinct flavor and showcase the finest riding in Durango. Over the course of racing two days, the second stop of the 2014 Big Mountain Enduro will be all about big descents in the high alpine. Shuttles will be provided for participants each morning in order to effectively transport riders to the best Enduro trails surrounding Durango. Expect three to four big stages and elevations topping out above 12,000 feet.
