PRESS RELEASE: Big Mountain Enduro
The Big Mountain Enduro series has been hard at work planning what is shaping up to be one of the best seasons yet. With continued sponsorships from some of the industry’s top companies, racers participating in the 2019 series can count on great tech support, huge amateur prize packages, large pro payouts and fun race promos at each stop.
Online registration will open January 1st with limited spots available, so make sure to bookmark your calendars. In order to focus on producing world-class events and to ensure the best racer experience possible, all 2019 BME events will be capped at 400 racers. BME will offer tiered pricing and discounts for those who register early, and prices will go up to regular rates as the events begin to sell out. Plan accordingly, lock in your spot and let the good times roll.
BME is poised to deliver yet another well-rounded tour across hallmark venues that won't disappoint. And with the addition of two brand new venues, Telluride and Big Sky, added days of racing and fresh trails, new DH disciplines, and an EWS qualifier stop taking place at Big Sky, BME racers are in for a treat. Expect more details in the coming weeks and an announcement on the 2020 big-picture BME plans come spring time.
Yeti Cycles has signed on for their 7th consecutive year as title sponsor of the BME. New for 2019, Maxxis will join forces as co-title sponsor of the series. As part of that, Maxxis will be offering all participants discounts on tires for each and every race. Racers who register online can expect huge discounts on tires, and Maxxis will even ship fresh rubber straight to your doorstep prior to all BME races. Additionally, presenting sponsors such as Shimano, FOX, Stan’s No Tubes, Dakine, Industry Nine, Ryno Power and Enduro MTB Training will be heavily involved in all angles of the BME throughout the year.
The Ride Series MTB has also become a core sponsor of the BME and will be offering participants half-day skills clinics at all events in order to help racers gain valuable technique and overall confidence on the bike. These are great programs designed for riders of all abilities, including pros and beginners. More details on these programs can be found here www.therideseriesmtb.com
New for 2019, the Yeti Cycles Big Mountain Enduro presented by Maxxis series will integrate a downhill race at two of the signature venues, Telluride and Aspen Snowmass. The DH races will be separate from the core enduro stages/tracks and registration details will be available next week. All enduro racers are encouraged to participate, as there will be no mandates on type of bike used for this fun event and the schedule will not interfere with the enduro practice and/or racing. Telluride will also be kicking in some extra cash for the winners of the inaugural DH race, taking part as part of the overall weekend festivities. Online registration opens at 8am MST on January 1st, 2019. Visit www.bigmountainenduro.com to learn more.
