The Los Alamos Rock ‘n’ Roll EnduroFest will test the endurance and skill of the best mountain bike riders in the Southwest on Aug. 8-9.
Now in its second year, EnduroFest includes two days of events for families and spectators including a brewery festival, live music, free camping and an after party with complimentary beer and food.
This year’s event has been scheduled the second week of August to become an official leg of the New Mexico Enduro Cup Series.
Enduro racing mostly consists of downhill racing, but it has an endurance element.
“Los Alamos’ trails are some of the most rugged and challenging in the state,” EnduroFest race director Brad Nyenhuis said. “This two-day, seven stage event features 2,100 feet of elevation gain and over 7,100 feet of descending,”
The event will also coincide with the Los Alamos County Fair, parade and rodeo, Aug. 7–9, which will be held at various locations throughout Los Alamos, including Ashley Pond Park, Fuller Lodge and Brewer Arena.
“Besides being a fun-filled weekend for competitors, there are lots of activities for anyone who wants to enjoy a cool, beautiful weekend in Los Alamos,” Nyenhuis said.
