The Epic Comes To Northstar

September 24, 2013

Ironman Lake Tahoe may have come to an end, but there is still opportunity to engage in competitive outdoor activity as the Epic comes to Northstar.

The Epic is a multi-day stage mountain bike race that takes place in the Sierra Mountains around North Lake Tahoe. It is a team event as you and your partner pit your skills and endurance against the mountain. Comprised of three epic stages over three days, riding partners must complete the entire distance starting and finishing side by side.  Each of the three stages starts and finishes at Northstar.  The race will take place on October 11, 12 & 13.

Definition:     ‘e-pik   –  Extending beyond the usual or ordinary especially in size or scope.

Showcasing some of the most incredible single-track in the entire United States, the course is designed to be spectacular, challenging and rewarding. Teams will experience a mix of fire-roads (to hasten climbs) and flowing single-track (for those of you who enjoy descents). The emphasis of the Epic is to challenge the riders’ endurance and teamwork rather than their technical riding ability, all while enjoying the breathtaking beautiful of the Tahoe region.  Details regarding the Epic can be found here.

The Spirit of the Event

Unlike typical mountain biking events, the Epic is hosted at a luxury resort that has every imaginable amenity for riders and supporters alike.  The family-friendly event offers something for everyone.  Since Northstar hosts the start and finish, families are encouraged to see their team off and welcome them back after a day of riding.  Families are also welcome to join riders for the post-race meals, to meet the pro-riders, and generally soak-up the atmosphere.

The spirit of the Epic is about helping you share the experience with your riding partner, your family and your friends. Everything is taken care of so that you can concentrate on the three day task at hand. They will even take care of your bike at the finish line – cleaning and servicing your bike, making it ready to roll for you the next morning.
