Crested Butte-- The Big Mountain Enduro Series will open registration for all events on January 28, 2013 including Angel Fire/Taos, Crested Butte, Keystone, Durango, and the finals in Moab. Two of the events- Keystone and Moab- are also part of the North American Enduro Tour (NAET), and will see deep competition as regional and local talent go head-to-head with national (and international) enduro racers. Each venue has its own unique flavor including epic backcountry trails that the Rocky Mountain Region is infamous for, as well as lift-accessed stages in order to showcase the most challenging trails at each host location.

"The host mountain towns and resorts we've partnered with, along with the surrounding trails selected for 2013, are world-class. We want to go bigger in all areas of operation from carefully selected courses, pro payouts, media exposure, sustainability and on-site festivities," said Brandon Ontiveros, executive director of the Big Mountain Enduro Series.

Registration opens on Monday January 28 at 8 a.m. for the BME Season Pass. Registration for the first four individual events will commence at Noon and registration for the finals, BME #5 Moab will open at 7 p.m.

There will be two days and between four and seven stages of racing at each venue for all categories, amounting to over 45,000 vertical feet of descending world class singletrack throughout the entire series. Each event will cost $150 and this will include: race entry fee, shuttle and lift ticket (where applicable), an event t-shirt, swag, complimentary food and beer, and vertical feet for dollar, the best value you’ll find in mountain bike racing in the U.S. The BME Season Pass will enter participants for all events, with a discount of $100.

Big Mountain Enduro is expanding from four to 10 categories for 2013 to deepen the competition across the board, including Pro, Amateur 19-29, Amateur 30-39, Masters 40+, and Junior 18 & Under for both men and women.

"We are happy to be offering more categories to encourage more women, juniors and amateurs to experience how fun enduro racing is for everyone," said Sarah Rawley, Big Mountain Enduro public relations.

No license is required to participate in the Big Mountain Enduro Series. All online registration will be available on the registration page of BigMountainEnduro.com.

In the event that an event fills up, there will be an automated wait list on BigMountainEnduro.com so eager participants can sign up to be contacted when spots become available.
