2014 Whiskey Off-Road

Grand Reg Opens this Sunday, April 6!

Mosey on over to the Western Slope of Colorado for the 2nd Annual Grand Junction Off-Road Presented by U.S. Bank. Featuring a community-oriented festival atmosphere similar to the Whiskey Off-Road, The Grand promises to deliver a fun, challenging and rewarding experience on some of the most awe-striking trails in America.

Limited to the first 700 entrants, every Epic Rides event in 2014 has sold out in record time, so don't wait, register for The Grand this Sunday.

*DON'T MISS OUT! Stan's NoTubes, our Official Wheel Sponsor, is giving one lucky Notubes fan a Crest or Arch EX wheel-set of their choice; 26", 27.5" or 29"!

Whiskey Poster Unveiled

Crafted with creative care by our cronies at Cirrus Visual Communication, the 2014 Whiskey Off-Road Official Event Poster showcases two things everyone will be doing a lot of on event weekend: riding amazing singletrack and rocking out on the Courthouse lawn.

Whiskey Off-Road 2014 Poster

Featuring 2013 Pro Women's Champion Lesley Paterson en route to victory along with Jamestown Revival on the path to jamming the audience's ears off, every entrant in the 11th Annual Whiskey Off-Road will receive this limited edition poster in their goodie bag to hang in living rooms, man caves and garages across the nation.

Thank you Cirrus Visual Communication for 14 unparalleled years of creative genius.

SS Winners Fly Free to SSWC in Alaska!

Listen up all single-gear sadists - for the man and woman crazy enough & fast enough to claim victory at this year's Whiskey Off-Road 50 Proof on a singlespeed, each will be provided round trip airfare to the 2014 Mountain Bike Singlespeed World Championships in America's last frontier - Anchorage, Alaska!

According to Dejay Birtch, the notorious Tucson monocog masochist and event co-producer, this year's event will put "the SIN back in SINglespeed". For those with no plans of winning the Whiskey Off-Road but still want to attend SSWC 2014, register here. You can also keep up with all the latest shenanigans by visiting the SSWC Facebook page.

Now get out there and start training - just kidding. We know single speeders don't train. They unleash their soul through pedal induced euphoria accented by rainbows and unbridled unicorns.

Friday Night Beer Tasting

A major part of the Whiskey Off-Road experience is about getting out and seeing the town! On Friday, April 25, the Prescott Brewing Company (130 W. Gurley St.) will be hosting a beer tasting from 8p to 10p to celebrate the three C's in brewing: camaraderie, creativity and collaboration.

In addition to their own frothy beverages, fellow Arizona brewer Mud Shark Brewery and the Official Beer of Epic Rides, Sierra Nevada Brewing Company will be in attendance to give everyone a little pre-event boost of liquid carbs.

This fine tasting experience is representative of the ethos in Sierra Nevada's Beer Camp Across America program, where Sierra Nevada partners with 12 different breweries to eventually create a variety 12-pack that will be showcased at beer festivals across the country. Prost!

Whiskey Off-Road Dedicated to "The Lung"

As a 1990 UCI World Mountain Bike Champion, six-time NORBA National Champion, two-time XTERRA World Champion, UCI Masters Cyclocross World Champion and Mountain Bike Hall of Fame member; most people need no introduction to the personality known by millions as "The Lung" and "Deadly Nedly".

And at 58 years young, Ned Overend is showing no signs of slowing down, recently having bested more than 300 competitors in Cable, Wisconsin to win the 2014 Fat Bike National Championship.

Epic Rides is honored to dedicate the 11th Annual Whiskey Off-Road to none other than the legendary Ned Overend. On Saturday, April 26 at 8p, Epic Rides will celebrate the illustrious career of Ned at the Raven Café (142 N. Cortez Street) in downtown Prescott. Join us and raise a pint in honor of "The Lung".

See ya trailside,
