RACING AT ONE OF THE NATION'S RAWEST BIKE PARKS
The Keystone BME contains some of the rawest and most rugged lift-accessed mountain biking in the U.S. and year over year is ranked as one of the most popular mountain biking events in the Rockies. With roots, rock gardens, drops and high-speed features, there will not be a dull moment on your bike for this third stop on the tour. Our courses will challenge riders to the fullest and combine the top trails on the mountain and new integrations for 2018. Throughout this 2-day event, expect to see 2 to 3 stages, primarily lift-accessed with some pedal transitions, a non-stop festival taking place in Keystone Village, a kids mini-enduro and entertainment for the entire family to enjoy.
No tech support will be offered while out on course (only in pit area), but plan for well-stocked aid stations including food and hydration to keep riders fueled during race days. The BME sponsor and vendor village will be located in Keystone Village, where the pre and post-race excitement will unfold. Here we will have full tech support, food, beer, entertainment, bike demos, massage services and the fun camaraderie that this event is historically known for.
