The “reverse enduro” MTB race and summer Festival of the Brewpubs return and combine for one, awesome day of bike riding, beer drinking, brat eating, and live music!

Even if you’re not racing, come out to cheer on the participants, sample beers from local breweries, enjoy locally made sausages, take a scenic chairlift ride, go for a hike, play a free round of disc golf, and enjoy a lovely Colorado day. Trails and outdoor base area are all dog-friendly.


This event is exactly as it sounds: a timed uphill and untimed descent. Riders will be ascending from the base area at 10,500 feet to the summit around 12,456 feet!

FORMAT: The race uses an individual time trial format. One rider will leave the gate at a time with a small gap provided between riders for spacing on course. Riders will compete in their categories against the clock for guts, glory, Strava bragging rights, and prizes! Costumes strongly encouraged.

COURSE: In 2021, participants rode 3 miles to the summit on a mix of singletrack and unimproved dirt road. This year’s course may differ due to the construction of the new Lenawee Express Lift and the expansion of the bike trail system.  Check out current and future A-Basin MTB trails, here.


A-Basin’s Summer Festival of the Brewpubs features local brewery tastings, house-smoked BBQ, and live music. Additional info on the band and breweries coming soon! Bike racers can add this on for one, simple registration.
