Welcome to the Epic Adventures Mountain Bike Festival, a weekend devoted to the mountain bike and all its glory.
The Epic Adventures Mountain Bike Festival has it all!
Friday, August 12 - Pump Track/Dirt Jump Jam Session - 6:00 p.m.
What better way to start a weekend, than with a evening of pumping and jumping. Basically a Meet & Greet/Weekend Opener/Tailgate Party to experience some pumps and jumps.
Saturday, August 13 - 8-Hour Enduro - 11 a.m.
The showcase of the festival is a gruelling 8-Hour Enduro, a throw-back to the early days of mountain biking on a old-school, tight, twisty and technical trail. The perfect mix of single-track, double-track, climbing and descending for just the right mix of pleasure and pain.
Enter as either a Solo rider or as a Team (maximum 4 riders). Choose from either the Advanced Loop (8.5 km) or the Novice Loop (4.5 km).
Sunday, August 14 - "Last Man/Woman Standing" Competition - 1:00 p.m.
This is a new event which combines the elements of a Short Track Cross-Country race and a Crit Race found in Road Cycling. Basically riders will complete as many laps around a short 1 km loop (mostly doubletrack to allow for passing) as possible. Any rider that is lapped is eliminated, the competition continues until only 1 rider is left on the course.
Prizes, Prizes and More Prizes!!! Our SPONSORS have gone all out!!!
