 This is some impressive and diverse racing, even coming down to finish line sprints over such big distances through a lot of different terrain. I enjoy watching an enduro rider blast through technical sections at blistering speed, but I can also appreciate the calculations and huge, lung burning effort that riders make while racing this event. Thanks pb for uploading recaps of a race I wouldn't have otherwise known about!

 This is A DAy OLD !?!?! The epic is over and their probably close to finished with packing up what is the point of reporting this stuff so late ? These videos you embed are up on the epic channel 5-6 hours after the first riders are in on the day

 It's a different type of gnarly to Rampage or Hardline, but these athletes are every bit as nuts and impressive.

 It's a different type of nuts for sure, but so very rewarding. The risk reward on these downhills has to be calculated 100's of times a day, at speeds near 60KM it's thrill but, but one rock can end your day quickly.
