The 2021 Big Mountain Enduro Finals will culminate on September 18-19 in beautiful Brian Head, UT. This 2-day event will showcase some of the best riding in Utah and this venue will challenge racers with the rocky chunder and technical riding that is ideal for the BME Finale.

The Brian Head Resort Mountain Bike Park is revered for its incredible gravity fed descents, technical single track, and access to hundreds of miles of scenic back country trails beyond the resort boundaries. The lift-served terrain at Brian Head accesses beginner to advanced level trails and the trails are built by and in association with Momentum Trail Concepts to create a modern, world-class lift-served trail experience. Brian Head Ski Resort is a ski and mountain bike destination in Southern Utah and close to the Southern California, Arizona, and Las Vegas areas. It is located 3.5 hours north of Las Vegas and 4 hours south of Salt Lake City.

This will be the only BME event in 2021 that does NOT allow e-bikes. Therefore, the Brian Head BME race will not include an e-bike category, so only stops 1-4 will count towards overall series points for the e-bike division.

Snow melted and trail is still clear and ideal as of Oct 22,2023 when we rode it. Right fork at Bunker creek has a little mud at times and some puddles, but is overall in pretty great shape.
