Big Mountain Enduro - Aspen Snowmass

Race Details:

Aspen Snowmass will host the BME Finals for 2018. 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 and some new trail integrations concluding last year’s EWS round. 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 backcountry 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 16 years going back to the NORBA Nationals and World Cup Downhill racing days. Throughout all the years, Aspen 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 fourth and final stop on the BME tour.

As a bonus, BME Aspen Snowmass will also be part of the EWS Continental Series, meaning this race will also count toward Enduro World Series qualification and global rankings.
