2014 Grand Junction Off-Road

And for those who dream to pilot a helicopter, in as little as 19 months at Guidance Aviation flight school in Prescott, students can acquire the credentials they need to become professional helicopter pilots. With training provided by some of the most experienced personnel in the country from leading aeronautical universities, Guidance Aviation delivers Training to a Higher Standard(TM).

Grand Junction Off-Road

Experience the World Famous Andy's Loop

Mountain bikers travel from all over the globe to ride the Western Slope of the Rockies, and several of these world renown trails are showcased in the Grand Junction Off-Road Presented by U.S. Bank. One of these trails is Andy's Loop, a breathtaking singletrack that descends into remarkable red rock canyon.

Andy's Loop has been featured in countless magazine spreads due to its awe striking beauty. Although it might appear intimidating to the novice rider, in last year's 15 Grand event that featured Andy's Loop, 90 percent of all beginners finished.

Without the cooperation and support of the Grand Junction BLM Field Office, access to legendary trails like Andy's Loop, Butterknife, Twist n' Shout, Gunnector, Magellan Loop and the Tabeguache Trail system would not be possible, so if you see a person in BLM uniform while riding, shoot 'em a cordial "thanks!"

To fully experience all these incredible trails plus partake in an entire weekend filled with live music and mountain bike culture, sign up for The Grand this Labor Day Weekend, August 29-31.

Registration is limited to 600 amateur participants, so don't delay!

Register today.

Whiskey Off-Road

Video Proof of an Epic Whiskey Weekend

If friends and family are having a hard time believing all the cold, snow, hail, rain and wind you endured at this year's Whiskey Off-Road, worry not. Directed and produced by Ben Clark, this year's Whiskey Off-Road Sizzle Reel will be sure to send a bone-shaking chill through the bodies of everyone who watches it.

And for those riders who are featured in the video, hold onto it as a keepsake to prove that you were indeed one of brave souls who embraced Mother Nature's squall and persevered at the most legendary edition of the Whiskey Off-Road to date.

Grand Valley Wine Country - More than just Mountain Biking

While most people know that the Western Slope of Colorado has stellar singletrack, not as many people know that Grand Valley is lined with notable wineries. Home to more than 20 wineries and vineyards serving up Colorado's best wines, the Grand Valley is a perfect place for a romantic weekend mountain bike getaway, so plan a trip this summer.

Tour of the White Mountains Registration is Open!

With new singletrack route options and a new host camping venue, last year's Tour was a sellout event. Featuring the same great trails and venue, the 2014 edition of the Tour on Saturday, October 4 will surely be another hit.

Registration opened May 1, so mark that calendar and get registered today.
