The Outlier Offroad Bike & Outdoor Demo is back. And big-big-BIGTIME racing returns to Vail. Check out (and RIDE!) all of the new bikes that debuted just a few days earlier at Interbike. Better yet, run what ya brung and slap on a number plate. Whether on foot or on wheels, you've never seen this side of the mountain! New for this year? Nightlife and live music, courtesy of our pals at Red Bull. Come for the trails, stay for disco foam party.

SCOTT SPARK XC - Saturday, September 30, 2017
Scott Spark XC competitors can select between 3 different distances in this USA Cycling sanctioned event; 25, 15 and 10-miles. The big loop takes you up and over for a 360-degree view of the entire valley and a singletrack, the intermediate distance offers a spectacular dose of Vail's signature singletrack and the shorty is just the right fit for beginners and kids.
ROCKSHOX ENDURO - Sunday, October 1, 2017- Slated for Sunday, September 11, our purpose-built brake pad roaster will feature three ball’r stages rich with vertical drop and ridiculously long sections of flowy downhill all-mountain goodies. This year's Enduro is sanctioned by USA Cycling.
Shrine Pass Brevet - Sunday, October 1, 2017
Grab your road, gravel or adventure bike (or better still, demo one for the morning!) and join us for a non-competitive mixed road/gravel adventure that takes rides through the quaint mountain towns of Minturn and Red Cliff before navigating Shrine and Vail passes. Two on course aid stations promise to keep riders making yummy noises with over-the-top fare.
