July 1, 2016 – Vail, Colo. – Organizers of the 2nd annual Vail Outlier Offroad Festival presented by SRAM are pleased to join USA Cycling (USAC) in announcing the designation of the festival’s RockShox Enduro event as Rocky Mountain Regional Championships. Riders from across the country will explore Vail’s expanding trail network to lay claim to championship titles in 10 categories.
“After years of running non-sanctioned events we recently sanctioned our Firebird XC and LoFi Super-D with USAC,” offers event producer Mike McCormack of Uncommon Communications, “Our experience was exceptional. We’re thrilled to bring championship mountain bike racing back to Vail in partnership with USA Cycling.”
“We’re excited to connect yet again with Uncommon Communications, this time to help bring Rocky Mountain Enduro Regional Championships to the Vail Outlier,” states USA Cycling’s Director of Event Services Joan Hanscom, “Uncommon organizes highly respected and very fun events. It’s our goal to add value to what they’re already doing so well. We’re looking forward to a great event in Vail!”
Held on September 11, 2016, the RockShox Enduro is a component of the Vail Outlier Offroad Festival (September 9-11, 2016,) which is held concurrently with Vail’s longstanding Oktoberfest and Farmer’s Market events. Other festival elements include a lift-served consumer demo serviced by Vail’s Gondola One, the Scott Spark XC and the GU Energy Trail 10K.
Scheduled just one week prior to Interbike, Outlier also features a standalone media day that offers journalists from around the country a first look and ride of many of the new products set to debut at the upcoming tradeshow.
