MTB RIDERS TO PUSH THE LIMITS AT RED BULL FINAL DESCENT
--12-Hour Downhill Series Caps Off MTB Season at Jackson Hole, Winter Park & Angel Fire Resorts--

WHO: Solo, Duo and Team riders, competing in Pro & Expert divisions, will push the limits in this 12-hour MTB downhill challenge. Riders can enter one event or ride all three stops in the series. Riders are expected from Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Arizona, California, Colorado, New Mexico, Texas and Oklahoma.

WHAT: The 2nd annual Red Bull Final Descent series, a mountain biking challenge that pushes riders to the brink and back over some of the most technically challenging terrain in North America, returns this year with more riders, more competition, and more mountain.
Riders will again face the grueling terrain of Winter Park and Angel Fire Resorts, but this time, will have the additional challenge of a third stop in the series at Jackson Hole, WY.
The format of the event is simple—riders can choose from three technical courses of varying difficulty. After 12 uninterrupted hours of extreme mountain riding, the competitor in each division with the most laps wins.
Each stop in the series offers a $5,000 cash purse plus gear from industry partners. The overall series winners—the male and female rider who posts the most laps combined for all events—takes home an additional $500 and ultimate end-of-season bragging rights.
Riders can register online through race weekend at www.active.com (search Red Bull Final Descent).
