About the event

THE 2024 BRECK EPIC
 August 11-17, 2024
Back to the beginning. When mountain biking was a about big rides with friends. About lending a hand when a rider went down. About how a shared experience on a challenging backcountry course disproportionately enriched all involved.

INCREDIBLE COURSES
The Breck Epic is composed of 6 BIG backcountry loops (3 loops for the 3-day Epic-curious events), each between 35 and 50 miles long. The event is unique in that it employs a cloverleaf format; each loop starting and finishing within a mile from downtown Breckenridge. The race utilizes the magnificently sprawling and interconnected network of trails that span the width and breadth of Summit and Park Counties. 

When mapping out the courses we asked ourselves; “What big rides would we want to tackle if we had most of the day to slaughter and 6 of our best friends along for the ride?” The answer lies before you. The six stages that compose the Epic are a well-rounded rider’s dream. Long middle-ring climbs, endless big-ring mashing descents.

THE LONG HAUL
The 2024 version of the Epic marks our 15th edition. That's a lonnnnng time! "Time," some would.say, "To spice things up!" We think you'll like what we have on deck. The race is rad. The courses are beyond fun. The vibe? Mid-90’s mayhem. And Breck? It's amazing. Great people, amazing food and unbelievable weather.

In an average year, Epic will host riders from 25 different countries and 40 states. Why? We think because events like ours are just rare. It's a unique combination of mayhem and organization, with a huge emphasis on camaraderie and community.

BIGGER ISN'T BETTER - 400 RIDER LIMIT
We'll also be limiting the field in 2024. This is a statement about how we feel about the quality of the race experience. We simply believe that it's more fun when there are fewer people out there. Bigger isn't better. BETTER is better. We think you'll have a better time without your snout poking up some other rider's tailpipe all day. Not that there's anything wrong with that. But as they say, unless you're the lead dog, that view is always the same.

We feel that our course can handle more, but the question is, "Should it?" Our personal answer is no. Our commitment to our riders and to our trail network and community is to keep our numbers down. Because it's a better experience for our riders and because it lessens the impact on our trail system.

So yeah. Space is limited. That's by design.

If a weeklong tour of the world's greatest high alpine trail network sounds like your cup of tea, come join us. We’ve got great people in a great town with courses that you’re gonna need to ride to believe. What else do you really need?
