About the Race

If you have ridden this course, you know what to expect, if you haven't....what are you waiting for? No highway crossings or pavement–all dirt, all day! As always, the loop will include the familiar Happy Jack and Vedauwoo areas, winding you through beautiful rock formations on primitive trails and fast forested single track. All at elevations over 7,500 feet, you'll race over high grass plains and down through serene aspen and pine forests.
With aid stations every 10 miles stocked with fresh food, water, performance nutrients, cowbells and the Laramie Range Epic's legendary volunteers, this is Wyoming’s premiere mountain bike event.

Racers have two course options:

- The One and Done -
A one lap, 32 mile loop (4,184 ft of climbing/descending all over 7500 ft in elevation) winding through the Pole Mountain trail system. Racers will be supported by the famous Laramie Range Epic Volunteers and sponsors who have made this race as fun and approachable as it is challenging and competitive.

- The Laramie Range Epic -
The same course with a second lap. This is type two fun. It is going to hurt, but in a really good way. Same great support on both laps, and the beer at the end of the race has been on ice longer.

After-Party

People come for the race, but stay for the after-party! Real food and real refreshments served by real people. Everyone is welcome to join the party with live music, food trucks, awards ceremony, and an Epic raffle!

History

The Epic originated in 1998 as the Laramie Enduro, starting in historic Downtown Laramie, Wyoming. At that time, the race began by climbing 1300 feet out of the Laramie valley and into the stunning landscape that graces our backyard to the east–the Pole Mountain Trail System. Over the years this race has transformed to maintain a traditional approach to a cross country race, while adapting with the evolution of mountain bike culture. We’re still racing some of the original trails and we remain committed to hosting a high-quality, fun event that attracts riders from across the country.
