The BME returns to Winter Park after a 2-year hiatus. This ever-popular event will blend high altitude racing mixed with rugged terrain and big descents. This gem of a place tucked deep in the Rockies boasts over 500 miles of singletrack and has one of the top bike parks in the country – Trestle Bike Park. With trails like that, it is no wonder that Winter Park has been dubbed Mountain Bike Capital USA. Whether you’re a novice or an expert downhiller, there are plenty of trails for you to experience, so plan to bring the entire family and friends.

Riders will be challenged to 1 day of racing that will push the athletes to the utmost and keep them on their toes at all times. Racers can expect 4 legitimate stages for the single day race and one hell of an after party to boot, presented by Upslope Brewing.

No tech support will be offered while out on course (only in pit area). The BME sponsor and vendor village will be located in the base village, where the pre and post-race excitement will unfold. Here we will have full tech support provided by Maxxis, Shimano and FOX, as well as a deejay, food, beer, media buzz, massage services and the fun camaraderie that the BME is known for.
