This past weekend was the Epic Rides Whiskey Off-Road in Prescott, Arizona. Racing began on Friday night when the pros lined up for the downtown fat-tire criterium. Racing for 20 minutes, the fastest men and women from throughout North America put on quite the show for the hometown crowd. Racers and locals alike were out spectating and enjoying the beverages supplied by Four Peaks Brewing Co. While the amateurs took to the course on Saturday for either the 15, 30 or 50-mile option, the pros tried to recover and prepare for Sunday's 38-mile backcounty XC race. Starting on Prescott's historic Whiskey Row, the men and women took off for a long day on the bike. Fun was had by all and we're excited to be a part of the Epic Rides Series!
