Crested Butte Vacation

With more than 800 miles of singletrack trail spanning the two million acres of public lands, the Gunnison Valley makes for an amazing mountain biking vacation. In Crested Butte, you can ride through handlebar-high wildflowers in summer and golden aspen leaves in fall. In Gunnison, home of the legendary Hartman Rocks Recreation Area, you’ll find some of the world’s best technical high-desert riding. The Gunnison Valley is located in the heart of Colorado’s Rocky Mountains, which guarantees epic mountain views on any ride. Lodging for the trip includes four (4) nights for you and a friend at the Elevation Hotel & Spa in Crested Butte, CO.

Yeti Cycles

The Grand Prize winner will receive a Yeti SB160 T1 in the size of their choice.

Upholding a time-tested, race-bred ethos that says nothing should hold a rider back from the sheer joy of untethered speed. Built off one of the most winning race platforms in EWS history, the SB160 is pure race machinery. The T1 build is a no-nonsense build all the way down to the grips. At the core is Yeti’s Turq-level frame, utilizing the most advanced carbon fiber available to create the chassis for Yeti’s legendary Switch Infinity suspension system. Fox Factory suspension, SRAM X0/GX drivetrain and Code RSC brakes, Maxxis rubber, and buttery smooth custom DT EX1700 wheels create a kit that’s truly race-ready.

Flylow Gear

Prize Kit Option #1

You will turn heads in the Honey Henley and Eleanor Short, but that’s not why you’ll wear this kit. The long-sleeved top offers protection from sun and trail but it’s still light and breathable for sweaty ascents, while these indestructible shorts come with enough stretch to handle hours on your bike. Throw the water and wind resistant Davis Jacket in a pack or even your pocket for unexpected squalls.

Prize kit includes: The Honey Jersey, the Eleanor Short, the Dirt Glove and the Davis Jacket.

Prize Kit Option #2

We ride our bike a lot, so we know exactly what mountain bikers need out of their apparel: fabric that doesn’t overheat on a climb, protects on the way downhill, and has just the right amount of stretch for good mobility. The Nash ¾ jersey has a three-quarter-length sleeve and a quick-dry that wicks sweats sweat, while the Goodson Short features a stretchy fabric with a streamlined, low-profile waistband that won’t slip. The water-resistant, lightweight Davis Jacket, a windbreaker you can shove easily into your pack for unexpected wind or weather.

Prize kit includes: The Nash 3/4 Shirt, the Goodson Short, the Dirt Glove and the Davis Jacket.

Kuat Racks

Grand Prize: The Piston® Pro. It’s lean. It’s mean. It’s a sweet bike-hauling machine. With some of the same great design features as our Piston® Pro X minus a few bells and whistles. But don’t worry. This rack still sings.

2nd Place Prize: Kuat's new tailgate pads offer five different sizes designed for just about any truck out there. Made from burly TPU welded fabric that’s flexible and smooth while still being durable and strong. They stand up to the elements and are simple to install. Haul up to six bikes and truck along to the trailhead in style. The fully welded durable TPU is smooth to the touch, while also being extremely durable and strong. Bonus: recyclable, and biodegradable. Each size is designed with an innovative tailgate window that allows backup camera visibility and tailgate handle access without having to remove the tailgate pad. The full-size tailgate pads hold up to six bikes, the mid-size tailgate pads hold up to five bikes and the half-pad holds up to 2 bikes. All are securely held in place with sturdy nylon straps. We’ve even designed a version for those tricky, curvy tailgates.
