Aspen/Snowmass will host the only U.S. stop of the Enduro World Series in 2017. The two-day event will blend high altitude riding adventures mixed with some of the biggest descents and best riding in the area. Expect a heavy pro field, the largest cash payout of any 2016 BME event and some new trails that have yet to be raced on.
If you can’t volunteer, feel free to stop by the EWS/BME vendor expo in Snowmass to talk trails with us, especially after racing concludes each day.
The combination of the Aspen Mountain and Snowmass Bike Park terrain and the surrounding trails within the valley, offer some of the most diverse mountain biking in the country. Aspen Mountain and Snowmass Bike Park are the only lift served biking in the U.S. that can take riders on 4,000-foot descents, beginning above tree line and ending in the high mountain desert. Riders should expect to see six stages and over 15,000 feet of descending and 1,500 feet of climbing, with both lift served and back country access to start lines and with a wide variety of raw terrain that top riders are looking for. Snowmass has supported mountain biking and gravity riding for over 15 years going back to the NORBA Nationals and World Cup Downhill racing. Throughout all the years, Snowmass has remained progressive every step of the way and the local crew is excited to showcase this venue to the mountain bike world, which will be the sixth stop on the EWS tour.
