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 athletes 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 Angel Fire/Taos Enduro is a new stop on the circuit and will be one hell of an opener to the 2013 Big Mountain Enduro Series. Angel Fire Bike Park and Taos are premier mountain bike destinations located in the southern Rocky Mountains of New Mexico. This natural playground extends well above tree line and the area is now becoming popular for extreme mountain biking. With elevation changes that will challenge even the most accomplished riders, the rewards of the effort are heart stopping views and seemingly endless descents. All festivities and tech expos will be based out of Angel Fire Resort, but expect to circumnavigate the surrounding area in order to access the most challenging Enduro terrain within the state.
