Racers were challenged to two days of racing on the most diverse trail offerings a single venue has ever offered, including the iconic "Whole Enchilada" and the "Magnificent 7" trails. Everything from sub-freezing temps on high alpine trails, to slick rock in the desert, the finals in Moab tested every facet of riders' skill and fitness.

 The Big Mtn Enduro Series was awesome this year and will probably be even better next year. Yeti did a good job with sponsorship and representation at the events but sorry to say it, this recap Video was terrible, didn't do the series justice at all.
