Epic Mountain Bike Series returns again for the 20th year! Fondly known as the Winter Park Mountain Bike Series, the Epic Mountain Bike Series is a much beloved and well known Colorado mountain bike series of events that cater to beginner and advanced riders. Keep your eye out as some pro riders have been known to race in this series over the years!
What makes this mountain bike series so special? It begins with the dedication of the Competition Center, the division at Winter Park Resort that manages all of the on mountain events/competitions and runs the Epic Mountain Bike Series. The crew at the Competition Center really loves the sport of mountain biking and ensures that the race courses are challenging, fun and safe. Over the years some of the race courses have changed slightly either due to weather or input from the competitors. Now who can say that other mountain bike race series will take competitor input into consideration when routing and designing a race course?
The Epic Mountain Bike Series makes getting into the series easy for beginners to pros. The event is divided into categories by age, gender and ability level. Opportunity to move from one category to another is easy to do as competitors get better in their mountain biking and racing ability. Often after a summer of racing in one category and placing in the top 3 spots in that race category, competitors will move up to the next category.
