Tour Pass

The Tour Pass is a list of riders who have finished within one hour of the 1st-place rider of their distance, in the last two years of Tour of the White Mountains or any Epic Rides Series event.  This is not based on category or gender but based on distance. Riders with an Oz Pass have earned the opportunity to line up in the front corral on ride day at the Tour of the White Mountains event.

Great, choose either of the three locations below to do some hooting and hollering while supporting friends, family and random riders.
