The main event for the Big Ring Ranch is still the 60-mile off road challenge featuring a solo and team competition for men, women and coed teams. A combined cash prize list of $2600 is being offered in the Men and Women’s Solo competitions.
Hosted by AAA Roofing co-owner and Flatwater Cycling team member, Will White, the Big Ring Ranch MTB Enduro is unlike any other mountain bike marathon events in Nebraska as it is held on private land owned by the White family. White and members of the Flatwater Cycling Team spent much of 2012 building the course.
The course is a 60/40 mix of “prairie fire roads” and single track. The former providing some very challenging climbs and blazing fast descents. All in all, the loop offers up 800′ of vertical climbing per lap.
“The course offers up everything for off road riding,” explains White, who won the Men’s Team competition with Steven Mongeon in 2012. “The singletrack, wide open sections, technical bits, it’s all there.”
