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.

Trail Sidney Peaks
This trail is underrated- beautiful views, rolling terrain and some cool pinnacles at the end. Next time I’ll do this as an out and back and drop down Dark Hollow. Bunker was meh IMO

The trail is mis labeled. It’s actually marathon trail. It’s rideable if your in good pedaling shape. Not very flowy. You’ll have some punchy climbs. It does connect to and from color flow but you would need a bike pass to access color flow.

Trail Sidney Peaks
This trail is usually ridden as part of a shuttle ride from BrIan Head Peak to Bunker Creek Road and includes Sydney Peaks, Bunker Creek North, Bunker Creek Middle, and a new extension. The total ride is about 12 miles one way. Rode this on 6/5/2021. I encountered several large patches of snow that I had to ride around and few large, downed trees near the peak, but other than that the trail was open and dry. There is a steep, rocky initial climb out of the parking lot then a fast, sometimes rough, rocky downhill. There are a few large rocks that can be dropped, rolled, or ridden around, then a few switchbacks through a charred aspen forest before it meets Bunker Creek North.

This is a great trail, and rides well both directions, but it is pretty rocky. It's signed as Marathon.
