Fears, Tears, and Beers 2021 is the enduro format mountain bike event of the season! Pedal your bike to the top of the mountain and then you are timed at specific sections of the course. There will be 2-6 timed sections, mostly twisty downhills and sprint sections. The sum of the times on these special tests will determine the winner.

The event takes place on BLM and USFS administered lands under special use permits.

Men’s and women’s events for all classes.

Fun Run: Shorter in length and less climbing than the beginner class, 2 timed sections

Beginner Class: 17.5 miles, 2,300′ elevation gain, 3 timed sections

Sport Class: 26.6 miles, 3,500′ elevation gain, 4 timed sections

Expert/Pro Class: 33.3 miles, 5,400′ elevation gain, 6 timed sections

Be prepared for the weather. We have had everything from hot and sunny to very wet and snowing.
