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 Durango Enduro is not for the faint of heart; it is a true backcountry event that will require riders to have moderate to excellent fitness. Each one of our multiple stages will have a distinct flavor, showcase more great riding in and around Durango over the course of two days and will be all about big descents. Expect Kennebec Pass and other infamous trails in this mountain biking mecca to be used during the fourth stop of the 2013 Big Mountain Enduro Series.
