2014 Whiskey Off-Road

Jamestown Revival Headlines Whiskey

With foot-stomping rhythms and soothing harmonies, the captivating music of Jamestown Revival is sure to be a perfect match for the free Community Concert at the 11th Annual Whiskey Off-Road. Epic Rides is excited to introduce Jonathan Clay and Zach Chance, a hardy duo from Austin, Texas who have a lifelong love for outdoor adventure that comes through in their earthen musicianship, a style that goes perfect with a cold beer under the shade of a tree after a long mountain bike ride.

With recent appearances on Conan O'Brien and Last Call with Carson Daly, Jamestown Revival is a name to remember, striking sonic similarities with legends like Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Everly Brothers and fellow Texans Willie Nelson, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Guy Clark; a deeply harmonious sound of the South mixed with gritty American West rock 'n roll.

Get all the details on Jamestown Revival as well as the full day of musical acts starting at 10a on Saturday, April 26 at the Community Concert page.

Don't be a Noob, Ditch the Tubes

Stan's NoTubes, the Official Wheel and Sealant of Epic Rides Events, offers the finest tubeless wheel technologies in the industry. Whether converting a current wheelset to tubeless or purchasing dedicated tubeless wheels in all three mountain bike sizes including road and cyclocross, Stan's is the go-to solution for cyclists who'd rather not concern themselves with flat tires.

New for 2014, the ZTR Valor carbon wheelset is both lighter and stronger than aluminum. The Valor's carbon rim is engineered to absorb radial vibrations adding suspension to a bike, making the ZTR Valor Carbon the most advanced wheelset NoTubes has ever produced. While non-compliant heavy rims that deliver a harsh ride have become the standard from many companies producing carbon rims, the ZTR Valor utilizes construction that is both elastic and strong helping it perform better in real world riding conditions.

Official Whiskey Off-Road Jersey Revealed

Designed with the highly creative eye of our friends at Cirrus Visual Communication and integrating photos by photographer Devon Balet, the 11th Annual Whiskey Off-Road Jersey captures two essential ingredients that make the event special: stellar singletrack and rollicking rock 'n roll.

The Official Whiskey Off-Road jersey uses high quality Q3 fabric made by Primal Wear. Up front it's all business, featuring 2013 Pro Women's Champion Lesley Paterson negotiating the notorious rock ledge and besting her competitors. Out back it's all party, with Roger Clyne in his element jamming proper on stage before thousands of ecstatic fans on the Courthouse lawn. Jersey here

After registering on the evening of April 17 at Bin707 for The Grand, stick around for a few more days and take part in an unofficial pre-ride weekend.
