The oldest MTB stage race in the US, Summit County's Breck Epic treats riders to 6 days of Colorado's best singletrack. Utilizing a unique cloverleaf format, each stage begins and ends within a mile of the historic Victorian mining town of Breckenridge, CO.

 

With too many dining, coffee and social options to list, riders and support crews will also find fantastic lodging deals at host property Beaver Run Resort. The Epic itself presents a modestly priced stage race with an especially strong media component. It offers non-pros an amazing non-USAC experience of a lifetime, and and professional riders and brand an outstanding weeklong opportunity to dominate the news cycle.

Word on the street is that a certain highly regarded road event may also make an appearance during this year's event. Or not. But we're holding a table laden with raw seafood at Mountain Flying Fish for Mssrs. Liggett and Sherwin just in case.

Date: August 14-19, 2016 (3-day events also available for stages 1-3 and 4-6)
Fee(s): $449-799. Partnership opportunities also available.
Registration: OPEN NOW. Register soon - strict field limits apply.

 

Vail Outlier Offroad Festival

We open the season with our Eagle event, and then for our finale, we give riders from across Colorado a first look at next year's top gear with Vail's Outlier Offroad Festival in September.

Powered by SRAM, and set against the stunning backdrop of the Gore and New York Ranges, the Vail Outlier Offroad Festival is easily accessible from Denver and presents a wide range of opportunities for brands seeking to distinguish themselves from the noise surrounding the fall tradeshows.

Priced sensibly, Outlier offers consumer demo with two lifts, Enduro and XC racing components and a media and VIP-only day that allows product managers and marketing teams alike meaningful time and access to what's estimated at over 150 media attendees. A deliberate mishmash of Vegas, Whistler, Moab, Park City and Monterey, Outlier clocks in heavy on the fun, but light on the budget.

Held the same weekend as Vail's Oktoberfest and the 12th annual Vail Farmer's Market, we've also added a delightfully trashy music and nightlife component for 2016.

Date: September 9-11, 2016 Fee(s): $300-800. Outlier demo brands receive a generous number of competitive event entries, lift tickets and VIP passes. Registrants also receive complimentary entry to our Eagle event, held June 4-6. Media Members: attending media receive complimentary lift passes, VIP access to participating brands, complimentary event entries and tickets to Mini Kiss. Registration: OPEN NOW.
