Big Mountain Enduro Releases 5-round Calendar for 2023

The team at Big Mountain Enduro (BME) has worked hard to put together what is arguably going to be one of the best race calendars to date for next year. The 2023 BME Series presented by Specialized will include a 5-stop national tour consisting of two brand new venues.

The tour will kick off with a springtime race at Mt. Nebo State Park, AR, then head west to Sunrise Park Resort, AZ for an early summer stop in the high desert. Excitement is buzzing around these new venues with fresh cut trails being built by Jagged Axe Trail Designs at Mt. Nebo and the wide variety and super steep terrain at Sunrise Park Resort. The third round returns to the beautiful San Juan Mountains in Durango Purgatory, CO, and the legendary trails that have become a racer favorite venue. Round four is Brian Head, UT, combining backcountry, the bike park’s rocky chunder, and new trails to boot.

The series will end on a high note with the BME Finals and fan-favorite Big Sky, Montana in early August. After taking a year off from this stop, you can bet the energy will be high amongst racers, teams and staff alike, all chomping at the bit to get back between the tape on these rowdy trails.

For each event racers can expect two big days, including a mix of pedal and lift assisted transfers, depending on the host venue. All 2023 events will showcase the biggest and most challenging trails at each location and maximize the overall racer experience, with epic prizing, large pro payouts, and entertaining festivities the BME is known for.

With the number of youth participants steadily increasing each year, the BME hopes to continue to bring more young riders into the sport of Enduro. The team strives to keep the challenging and unique terrain in order to develop all levels of mountain bikers, while ultimately keeping the FUN factor high. Four of the five rounds will count towards the Overall Series points.

Online registration will open on January 1st, 2023 on the BME website

Events sell out quickly, so those interested in competing in the top North American series should bookmark the date and secure their entries early. More details on race categories will be available online in November, along with information on lodging discounts for racers and teams, and event specifics.
