The third stop of the Yeti Cycles Big Mountain Enduro presented by Maxxis hit the road to the mighty San Juans for some true big mountain riding in Telluride, Colorado this past weekend. For those unfamiliar with Telluride, its pretty much an outdoorsy adult Disney World located in the Swiss Alps of Colorado, and it served as a first time visit for Big Mountain Enduro.
Another large sized field of 400 plus racers tested their selves on a mix of Telluride bike park and remote backcountry singletrack. The one day race included nearly 7,800 feet of descending and 3,000 feet of climbing for a big day in the saddle with 4 challenging stages.
After a high speed bike park stage, racers transitioned across the valley for a large climb to stage 2. No question, stage 2 was a highlight of the day, and sent racers down some of the most ripping singletrack you can find in Colorado.
While racers were on stages 2 and 3, a typical afternoon storm rolled through, shut down the lifts, and left everyone waiting for the hero dirt and blue skies that would follow for stage 4.
