Resort Information

The Shepherd Mountain Bike Park in Ironton, MO will feature some of the most steep, technical and gnarly riding anywhere between the Appalachians and the Rockies.  For 2022 we will a have a 2-day race (Saturday-Sunday), will feature 7 to 8 stages and upwards of 5,000 feet of climbing and descending, as well as an all-day party on top of the mountain with the stage start lines right next to the DJ! Official practice will take place on Thursday and Friday.

Designed by the same brainchild behind the awesome trails at Glorieta in Sante Fe, New Mexico, racers can expect a mix of tight, steep, and chunky tech, huge natural rock formations, and a roller coaster of trails that will leave them scratching their collective heads and wondering, “How in the world is the riding so good here!”

Jagged Axe is the creative trail builder behind the Ironton, MO and Santa Fe (Glorieta), NM Big Mountain Enduro venues. Purpose built and rider crafted mountain bike trails for all ability levels, always working towards bringing you the best quality trails possible

In addition to the quality stages, the city of Ironton offers a remarkable, friendly, small-town experience that is sure to lure racers back for years to come. Nestled in the Arcadia Valley, Ironton is centrally located in the middle of some of the most beautiful and fun outdoor experiences in the country. Johnson’s Shut-Ins and Elephant Rocks State Park are a very short drive away, as are legitimate white-water rapids on the St. Francois river or a relaxing day of floating on swift-but-calmer waters.

For a new adventure, unbeatable atmosphere and incredible stages, Shepherd Mountain is a can’t miss stop for the 2022 BME!
