Crested Butte is a town where the history runs as deep as valleys up into the mountains. The supposed birthplace of mountain biking, and former home to the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame, Crested Butte is surrounded by more untamed wilderness than anywhere else in the lower 48. The Crested Butte Ultra Enduro has been years in the making, and finally in 2014 we will experience what all of the locals have been thriving on for years.

The Crested Butte Ultra Enduro is the first 5-day backcountry Enduro in North America. Racers will average 28 miles per day, with 5300′ of climbing and 6700′ of descending and culminate the week at Crested Butte Mountain Resort with a day of racing the flowy and rough terrain in Evolution Bike Park.
