Vail Outlier Offroad Festival: September 30-Oct 1

In its third year, the Vail Outlier Offroad Festival is a mountain bike festival composed of many things:

  • A HUGE lift-served consumer-facing demo offering all of next year’s bikes and gear from the industry’s best brands.
  • An incredible back and side-country competitive XC event. 
  • Got an MTB hero? The chances are pretty decent that you’ll see them here.
  • 3 stages of Enduro with roughly 8-10,000 feet of vertical loss. This year’s Rock Shox Enduro also serves as USA Cycling’s Rocky Mountain Regional Enduro Championship.
  • A Colorado-style gran fondo with liberal amounts of gravel. 
  • The Blue Room media-only event. Are you a manufacturer? Bring your demo rig from Vegas and schedule some REAL dirt time with the best writers and editors in the business.
