Greer, Arizona – August 4, 2023 – Big Mountain Enduro (BME) announced today that Sunrise Park Resort has been selected to host this prestigious enduro series for the second year in a row. Sunrise welcomed hundreds of skilled mountain bike competitors during BME in June 2023 to great success. For the 2023 BME schedule, Sunrise will be the third destination in this prestigious series and the event will be held June 8-9, 2024.
For the 2023 BME Race, Sunrise Park Resort added two new raw-cut trails on Apache Peak, which opened to the public after the completion of the event. BME also brought a number of world-class vendors of quality and custom bikes and equipment, which are expected to return in 2024. Sunrise has invested hundreds of thousands of dollars into the bike park this summer and continues to work on trail improvements and expansion, including brand new bike racks (doubling the uphill capacity), four new straights and 10 new turns to the Dual Slalom track, and expansion of the Jump Line trail. Additional trails are also being cut across the mountain to further expand the ridable terrain for events and the mountain biking community.
BME is North America’s premier Enduro tour and brings professional and amateur mountain bikers from across the country to compete at some of the most challenging mountain courses. There are six stops for the BME series, all specially picked for their challenge and trail offerings, and Sunrise is proud to be selected as a host mountain for the second year in a row.
