An Old West Thankee

Another unforgettable weekend of riding, eating, drinking and rocking out to live music is in the books, and the Whiskey Off-Road is now rolling into its second decade of existence. Epic Rides couldn't have made it all this way without the incredible support of so many enthusiastic volunteers, event sponsors, attendees, the City of Prescott, Yavapai County, the Eagles, and the Prescott National Forest.

We want to send out a sincere and heartfelt thank you to everyone who came together to make the 10th Annual Whiskey Off-Road the best one ever. Whether spectator, participant, vendor or volunteer, the mountain bike community is one big happy family made up of people from around the world, and we love to reunite the family every year in Prescott!

Registration Bumps Up for The Grand

Don't want to wait a whole year to experience another unforgettable weekend like the Whiskey? Now you don't have to, because this Labor Day Weekend (August 30-September 1) the inaugural Grand Junction Off-Road Presented by U.S. Bank will introduce many people to the mountain biking-infused wine country of Grand Junction, Colorado.

Taking all the same elements that make the Whiskey so much fun, The Grand will offer live music, a beer garden (& wine garden?), an event expo, two stages of Pro racing with $20,000 cash purse and three different distance events on some of the most legendary singletrack in North America. So mark your calendar and get registered today because we've seen a bump in activity after the Whiskey, and there are only a total of 500 spots available.

Grand Junction Pre-Ride Weekend - May 18 & 19

Ladies and Gents, it's time to get intimate with the Grand Junction Off-Road presented by U.S. Bank For those new to the Epic Rides fold...here's what you need to know before delving in to the unofficial pre-ride weekend.

Why: A pre-ride is an invaluable opportunity to gain course beta. Knowing where the top of the hill is, or what's around the next corner is guaranteed to pay dividends on ride day. Pre-riding is also helpful if you're not sure which distance is most suitable for your first foray in GJ.

What: The Unofficial Pre-ride is intended to be just that, Unofficial. There is no start line, no finish line, and certainly no rules or expectations. It's simply an opportunity to increase the odds of people being on the trail together. The bi-product this spins off is a more social and more safe environment (it's always important to be safe).
