Win a $4,850 Scott Spark 29er Courtesy of CenturyLink

The Old West charm of Prescott and Whiskey Row may take you back to the days before electricity when gun slingin' cowboys walked the streets, but thanks to CenturyLink, downtown Prescott will be 'wired' all weekend long.

Centurylink is providing free internet service around the square so you can upload pictures and make your Facebook friends jealous. But wait, it gets better. When you sign in, simply click through the online banner, complete a quick survey and enter to win a Scott Spark 910 29er worth $4,850! This is one serious high-performance carbon fiber full suspension rig, featuring Shimano XT components.

As the Official Bike of the Whiskey Off-Road, Scott Sports will be at the Hi-Health Bike & Wellness Expo all weekend demoing a complete line of mountain bikes, including the Scott Spark 910 that you have a chance of winning. Go test one out and keep your fingers crossed! The winner will be announced Friday May 3 on the Grand Junction Off-Road Presented by U.S. Bank Facebook page.

Rest assured that on Saturday morning you'll be properly fueled for a great day on the bike thanks to Hi-Health.

Shimano Kids Fun Ride Routes Announced

Why should adults get to have all the pedal-powered fun at the Whiskey Off-Road? The Shimano Youth Series Kids Fun Ride features two different courses - the Single Shot and the Triple Shot - on Sunday morning after the Pro sendoff, perfect for kids of all ages and skill levels. For many kids, this will be their first shot at the Whiskey, and most definitely not their last.

The Triple Shot long course starts at 9:05a taking a tour through Granite Creek Park and is recommended for all those mini-shredders and more experienced riders. The Single Shot short course starts at 9:15a and runs multiple laps around a half-mile closed course in the heart of downtown Prescott. Both courses need to be cleared by 10:15a in preparation of the first Pros arriving at the finish. Sunday morning at the Whiskey promises to be packed with fun for people of all ages!

Registration hours are Friday 11a-6p, Saturday 10a-3p and Sunday 7:30a-8:30a at the Epic Rides Tent.

Upgrade to Ergon at the Whiskey

Besides your pedals, your grips and saddle are the most used parts of your bike, and naturally, after hundreds of rides they begin to wear out. Spring is the perfect time to upgrade those tattered grips and high mileage saddles, and it just so happens that the Ergon Spring Tour will make its second stop at the Whiskey Off-Road. During the Tour, riders can take advantage of free Ergon product demos, on-site upgrade pricing, and free installation.

With a complete line of ergonomic grips and saddles German-engineered for superior fit and quality, Ergon has become the leading choice for riders seeking all-day comfort to keep them riding longer and stronger. Be sure to stop by the Ergon booth in the Hi-Health Bike and Wellness Expo to experience the Ergon difference. This year, upgrade to Ergon!

Stash Your Trash with GU Energy Labs

As the official nutrition sponsor of the Whiskey Off-Road, GU Energy Labs enjoys the outdoors just as much as you do. To ensure that participants leave nothing but tire tracks in the Prescott National Forest, there will be GU trash cans at all aid stations, and in between, so that riders can properly stash their trash as they ride.

Help us help you

Through cooperation with the City of Prescott, ASU's Carey School of Business will be conducting an economic impact study on the Whiskey Off-Road. While you're enjoying event weekend, store in the back of your mind how many are in your party, where you're spending, and how much. Of course, if a student from ASU approaches you to ask a few questions, your cooperation is appreciated.

Keep an eye out for a link from Epic Rides post Whiskey weekend to help us conduct a bit of conclusive research that will help to continue our development of the Whiskey, and additional events in the Epic Rides Off-Road Series. Thank you.
