Wide-ranging series features courses from mild to wild

While the debate over the definition of enduro rages on, the Big Mountain Enduro series’ answer is pretty simple—a little bit of everything. With five stops ranging from the buff, high country singletrack of Crested Butte, Colo. to the full-face-required slopes of Keystone, as well as Utah’s in-betweener destination of Moab, the 2014 BME season places a premium on variety and versatility.

Though the series is only in its second year, it’s already got a loyal following of riders including some that lend credence to the disciplines’s wide range. Cross country aces Heather Irminger and husband Jeremy Horgan-Kobelski vied for front-of-the-field status along with DH-specialists like Alex Petitdemange and Joe Lawill. Also in the mix are fast-on-all-fronts riders like Ross Schnell and Nate Hills.

About the author: Don Palermini

Chicago-born editorial director Don Palermini became a cycling-based life-form in the sixth grade after completing a family road bike tour of his home state. Three years later he bought his first mountain bike to help mitigate the city's pothole-strewn streets, and began exploring the region's unpaved roads and trails. Those rides sparked a much larger journey which includes all manner of bike racing, commuting, on- and off-road bike advocacy, and a 20-plus-year marketing career in the cycling industry. Now residing in the San Francisco Bay Area and pedaling for Mtbr, his four favorite words in the English language are "breakfast served all day," together in that order.
