The fifth and final race of the 2021 Yeti Cycles Big Mountain Enduro Presented By Maxxis was upon us, and Brian Head, UT was the chosen location. This quaint ski town makes incredible use of the steep, loose, shaley terrain during the summer months to provide some of the scariest riding around—it was without question that this would make a perfect spot to hold a Big Mountain Enduro.
The intention of the season finale was for a two day race, with three stages per day and the first day would include two backcountry stages and one bike park stage. The following day would take place solely in the bike park. The weather had other ideas.
