BME #1, Angel Fire/Taos shuttled racers into the backcountry and up the longest lift in the U.S. for two days, five stages, and countless rock gardens at Angel Fire Bike Park, throwing every kind of riding at racers. A true test of all-around skill and all-day riding ability set the true Enduro racers a part from those who just showed up for the ride.
Ross Schnell and Kelli Emmet took a commanding lead from Stage 1 on the South Boundary Trail putting several seconds into their competitors. Day 2 of BME #1, Angel Fire/Taos kept racers of the edge of their seats with near-instantaneous results popping up after every stage. Some say it came down to tire selection and keeping it upright for the weekend, but everyone knows it came down to who wanted it the most.
Join us for the second round of Big Mountain Enduro at BME #2, Crested Butte June 29-30.
