The Breck Epic. Back to the beginning. When mountain biking was a about big rides with friends. About lending a hand when a rider went down. About a shared experience that somehow, flying in the face of all logic, disproportionately enriched all involved.
The Epic is composed of 6 BIG backcountry loops (3 loops for the 3-day Epic-curious events), each between 35 and 50 miles long. The event is unique in that it employs a cloverleaf format; each loop starting and finishing within a mile from downtown Breckenridge. The race utilizes the magnificently sprawling network of trails that span the width and breadth of Summit and Park Counties.
When mapping out the courses we asked ourselves; “What big rides would we want to tackle if we had most of the day to slaughter and 6 of our best friends along for the ride?” The answer lies before you. The six stages that compose the Epic are a well-rounded rider’s dream. Long middle-ring climbs, endless big-ring mashing descents.
The 2019 version of the Epic marks our 11th anniversary. 11 years is a lonnng time. "Time," some would.say, "To spice things up!" We think you'll like what we have on deck.
The race is rad. The courses are beyond fun. The vibe? Mid-90’s mayhem. And Breck? It's amazing. Great people, amazing food and unbelievable weather.
If that sounds like your cup of tea, come join us. We’ve got great people in a great town with courses that you’re gonna need to ride to believe. What else do you really need?
