As the dust settled on Steamboat Springs, joking chatter began to fly into the air. Deemed as an XC enduro by many, some riders saw a lack of technical riding. With extended long buff sections of single track, this race was certainly different from all the other Big Mountain Enduro races, but after two days and seven stages it was anything but easy. Many riders finding themselves holding on to finish out the final stage on Steamboat Resort. Day one had roughly 22 miles and 3,000 feet of climbing in some of the best backcountry single track Steamboat Springs
has to offer while day two brought racers to Steamboat Resort for three stages of racing.
The next race in the Big Mountain Enduro series will be held in Crested Butte for what is considered one of the hardest backcountry enduro races.
