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? The Goodyear Bicycle Tires Grav-Vail Grinder and the Scott Bikes VertiVail Challenge.
OUTLIER OFFROAD CONSUMER DEMO - PRESENTED BY SRAM - September 28-30, 2018
We know you. You're a bike geek. An outdoor freak. You pore through pages of Outside Online, MTBR.com and Bicycling just absolutely drooling over new products. Well drop that keyboard, friend. And get to Vail. Because all of that new gear will be here. In de flesh. 75+ leading brands including SRAM, Scott, Trek, Giant, Specialized, Santa Cruz, Juliana, Pivot, Niner, Yeti, Rocky Mountain, Ibis and many, many more.
ROCKSHOX ENDURO - Saturday, Sep 29 and Sunday, Sep 30 - Slated for two days this year with a few new surprises thrown in, our purpose-built brake pad roaster will feature at least three ball’r stages rich with vertical drop and ridiculously long sections of flowy downhill all-mountain goodies.
GOODYEAR BICYCLE TIRES GraVAIL Grinder - 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.
SCOTT BICYCLES VERTI-VAIL CHALLENGE - It's a bit of fist-pump and a buttload of arm-pump. We've got some sweet swag for the women, men and juniors that log the most vertical (dh variety). Prizes go to daily winners and the grand prizes are awarded to the riders who record the most vertical feet over Outlier's 3 days. Grab your bike (or a demo or two) and hit the trails!
