Why do an Epic 8 Hour? There are several reasons why it’s’ more fun than a conventional race.
- Because the Epic 8 Hour is defined by time, not distance, nobody finishes “last”. All riders finish at about the same time. Slower riders can ride at their own pace without feeling like they are “holding up” anyone. Faster riders who want a good workout can put in more laps and ride more distance.
- In a conventional race, most of us never see the faster riders after the start line, and never see them in action at all. In an Epic 8 Hour, most of us will get passed by faster riders at some point. These “fast guys and girlz” are inspiring to watch, and it’s a good chance to see how skillfully these talented athletes negotiate the course.
- When your team-mate is out riding, you get to relax, hang out with friends at the start/finish area, and watch the progress of the other teams. “Enduro and Team Relay events are credited with the revival of mountain bike racing in recent years, mainly as a result of their participation and festival nature”.
So if you have never participated in an Epic 8 Hour, it’s a good chance to give it a try, challenge yourself, meet some other riders, and celebrate our sport!

We look forward to an awesome fall day of fun and great riding!
