Big Mountain Enduro, presented by TRP Cycling, the premier mountain bike enduro race series in the nation, is headed to Arizona’s Sunrise Resort in June.
This event will feature a stellar lineup of professional riders alongside amateur participants. In an exciting first, the series will also host the exclusive Big Mountain Downhill. The action-packed event will unfold at Sunrise Resort near Greer, Arizona, from June 6 to June 9.

The adrenaline-fueled weekend kicks off with two practice days, allowing riders to acquaint themselves with the challenging course and strategize for a safe and speedy descent.

On Friday night, the event will commence with an opening ceremony, featuring the Crown Dancers from the White Mountain Apache Tribe. The dancers will offer a ceremony to bless the safety of all participants throughout the weekend.

On Saturday morning, racers will assemble at the Vendor Village before embarking on their assigned time slots to conquer the course. Over the span of two days, participants will be timed as they navigate all seven exhilarating stages. Each stage has been meticulously designed to test the riders’ abilities, showcasing their skills as they tackle some of the most formidable trails in the nation. The competition will include a diverse range of riders, spanning from 13-year-olds to those more than 50 years old. Anticipated attendance exceeds 300 racers, drawing participants from throughout the United States, as well as their families, friends, and spectators eager to witness the excitement of Mountain Bike Racing.

As the last rider crosses the finish line on Sunday evening, everyone will gather once again at the Vendor Village for the highly anticipated awards ceremony. The ceremony will be streamed live on our YouTube channel [https://www.youtube.com/@BigMountainEnduro] at 3 p.m. PST. It will begin with the Youth Enduro Series winners and culminate with the announcement of the Big Mountain Enduro Pros.

In addition to the prestige associated with the awards, thousands of dollars in prizes will be distributed, including $9,000 in cash prizes for the professional riders.

This action-packed weekend promises thrills, spills, and an unforgettable experience for all mountain biking enthusiasts.
