The Big Mountain Enduro 2019 season opener will kick off in Santa Fe, NM with a two-day backcountry race entailing upwards of 7’000 feet of long rocky descents throughout the weekend. Racers can expect 3 stages per day on some of the most unique and raw terrain in New Mexico.

Amongst this venue, BME will offer its standard world-class Enduro racing with an added weekend Adventure Festival taking place at Glorieta Camps. Official practice will start on Thursday and course maps will be released on Wednesday evening. Expect fun and entertainment all weekend long for the entire family to enjoy, along with the great trails and good vibes that BME events have become known for. On-site camping and lodging is also available for athletes and industry sponsors.

No tech support will be offered while out on course (only in pit area), but plan for well-stocked aid stations containing food and hydration to keep riders fueled during each race day. The BME sponsor and vendor village will be located inside Glorieta Camps next to the red barn, where the pre and post-race excitement will unfold. Here we will have full tech support provided by Maxxis, Shimano, FOX and Smart Cycling Service, as well as a deejay, vendors, food, beer garden, media buzz, massage services and the camaraderie and camping atmosphere that this event is historically known for.
