Lone Peak’s Revenge
Montana Enduro Series returns to Big Sky for third year
“It has no mercy. It is steep. It is long. And it is everything that makes enduro racing fun. There is no shortage of awesome in store.”
That’s some of the knobby-tire hype flying around like trail gravel on social media and the web as we get closer to start time for Lone Peak’s Revenge.
“Get ready for the rough stuff,” warns another posting for the mountain bike race, one of several demanding stops in the Montana Enduro Series. In Big Sky, reports the series, “Everyone’s favorite high-elevation trails will be as wild and wooly as we’ve come to expect.”
Last year, Michael Grimland (pictured) reportedly broke four ribs and punctured a lung. But he held on to log an impressive fourth place finish at Lone Peak’s Revenge in 2017. This year’s race is Sunday, July 29 from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Big Sky Resort.
