When we were approached by the Director of the Enduro-X Race Series in Steamboat Springs to be the exclusive beer sponsor for the event, our answer was a resounding “Hell Ya!” Beer and bikes? There sure wasn’t a whole lot to have to think about with this one.
And being that the Enduro-X Race, now in its second year, is a local event that brings new visitors to our area we are thrilled to support them in any way we can. As Colorado’s premier destination brewery, we are honored to be associated with such an incredibly thrilling event. Enduro MTB racing is the hottest trend in biking these days and we love the momentum the sport is seeing.
Steamboat’s Enduro-X Race features over 2,000 vertical feet of decent in each of the four stages that make up the series. The race accesses National Forest trails and the Steamboat Bike Park to offer a challenging course design unlike any other you’ll find in Northwest Colorado. The route selections for this event are some of the longest in the world, challenging both the rider’s skills and endurance.
Butcherknife beer will be poured to refuel those racers 21 and older after the finish of each stage. Though we haven’t quite decided on the specific varieties we’ll be pouring, you can bet that our crew of outdoor enthusiasts and bike fanatics will be having as much fun as the racers themselves.
And wouldn’t you agree… beer and bikes just seem to fit, don’t they? So thanks to Steamboat’s Enduro-X Race Series for formalizing this partnership. We now have an “official” outlet for our love of the sport.
