Opus Spring Epic 8 Hour - May 15, Mansfield
Summer Epic 8 Hour - July 24, Hardwood Ski and Bike

What is the Epic 8 Hour?
There are several reasons why its' more fun than a conventional race.
So if you have never participated in an Epic 8 Hour, it’s a
good chance to give it a try,
challenge yourself, meet some other riders, and celebrate our sport!
The Epic 8 Hour courses are approx. 10 km, comprised of some of the most fun, fast and rolling trails. The courses have a good selection of challenges, but will not be overly technical for newer riders. The courses for all the events are completely different, and have a very different feel.
The Epic 8 Hour Relay Series is timed using the proprietary Chico Racing Chip Timing system, famous from the Chico Racing 24 HR events, to ensure accurate and instantaneous results.
Epic Kids Ride
The Epic Kids Ride is designed to provide the little ones with a special event just for them, and include them in a fun day for the whole family. This is a fun oriented, non-competitive event, where the kids are challenged to ride as many laps as possible within the 15 minute time limit. The Epic Kids Ridemis open to all young riders age 10 and under, so there’s no excuse for them not to give it a try.
All pre-registered Epic Kids will receive a special Epic 8 Hour souvenir, and other treats for participation.
- Draw Prizes available for each person including a Bike as Grand Draw Prize at Awards.
- Free Race souvenir T-Shirt to first 600 registered
