The Big Mountain Enduro just got bigger. For this coming season, the series will be capped with the first-ever five-day backcountry enduro race. The Crested Butte Ultra Enduro will take riders up and over some of the most picturesque mountains in the US.

From September 3-7, riders will tackle some of the most challenging trails in North America, while having to be mostly self-supported and capable of navigating maps in remote areas. Making it up over the mountain passes—with elevations topping 12,000 feet—they will be rewarded with more than 20,000 feet of descending.

Only 200 spots will be available, so be sure to jump on registration when it goes live at 6 p.m. (MST) on Wednesday, January 15.

At each of the five stops in three states, riders were treated to some of the best riding in North America, with amateurs—and even juniors—racing the same tracks as the pros.
