Coming off a successful year of racing in the U.S., the Big Mountain Enduro (BME) has put together another incredible event calendar for 2022 and the buzz around the series couldn’t be any hotter. This past race season included 5 sold-out events at diverse venues across the country encompassing every mix of riding you could imagine, along with some of the most technical tracks the U.S. gravity race scene has witnessed in decades. Richie Rude of Yeti Cycles took the overall series win for the pro men, and it was Kera Linn of Cannondale who won the pro women’s division.
Next season’s 5-stop national tour kicks off in Ironton, MO in May and will then head to the big mountains and steep descents at Big Sky, MT in late June. In mid July, BME returns to the Rocky Mountain high alpine in Durango Purgatory, CO, followed by Brian Head, UT in August. The September Finals will culminate at a new and exciting west coast venue in Bend / Mt. Bachelor, OR. There racers can expect a big day of backcountry racing and some of the best downhill tracks that Mt. Bachelor Bike Park has to offer. All 2022 events will be two-day races, which will maximize the rider experience and showcase the great trails at each host destination.
