Keystone Resort announced today the Big Mountain Enduro mountain bike competition, July 12-13, where world-class bikers participate in an epic trail ride that tests endurance, technical skills and guts.
Part of the 2014 North American Enduro Tour, the stop at Keystone will showcase two days of physically enduring cross-country riding and technical downhill mountain bike racing across the resort’s mountain bike park.
Designed to bring together the continent’s best mountain bike athletes with a multi-day, multi-stage tour that tests not only the physically fit mountain bike athlete, but also the technically skilled, the Tour aims to crown the best all-around mountain bike athlete.
At Keystone, the stop will consist of both high altitude grueling single track and technical downhill mountain bike racing featuring intense drops, rock gardens and steep terrain. Beginning at 10 a.m. both days also include a vendor village and live music with DJ DC.
For those who want to enjoy viewing the weekend’s events but also wish to partake in a little adventure of their own, Keystone offers a range of activities, including mountain-top yoga, two-championship golf courses, a recreation path for road biking, running or walking, stand up paddle boarding on the resort’s five-acre lake, après decks with a view and several dining options.
The Keystone Bike Park will be closed during the competition, but open to the public 5-7 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday of the race weekend. Non-competition riders can use the park’s 100 miles of singletrack across 55 trails with 2,360 feet of vertical drop this weekend as well as throughout the rest of the summer until the resort’s closing bike park date of Sept. 14.
Keystone is also offering the Choose Your Own Adventure package where you can choose from a wide range of lodging options while saving up to 36% off. Plus, the package includes a selection of à la carte activity options.
