Whiskey Off-Road, Grand Junction Off-Road & Carson City Off-Road

TUCSON, AZ (January 28, 2021) – Organizers of the Epic Rides Series of mountain bike events and music festivals where mountain bike culture, live music, and some of the world's best singletrack intersect have announced cancelation's for 2021 due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

In an announcement to their 30,000 eNews database subscribers, here is what Epic Rides said:

With concurrence from our host communities, and in the interest of keeping everyone safe, Epic Rides will not produce the following 2021 events.

  • Whiskey Off-Road April 23 - 25 Prescott, AZ
  • Grand Junction Off-Road May 14 - 16 Grand Junction, CO
  • Carson City Off-Road June 25 - 27 Carson City, NV

This means Epic Rides will go at least 1.75 event cycles before resurfacing.

"We are disappointed that we won't be able to bring our merry band of mountain bikers together this spring/summer, but we know this is the right thing to do at the moment," said Epic Rides Series Founder & President, Todd Sadow. "Each of our events means so much to so many - from fundraising for worthy causes to driving local economies through tourism to providing a platform for character building and personal achievements - we look forward to returning with each of these Epic Rides Series events in 2022."

The three events were also canceled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 2020 would have hosted the 17th annual Whiskey Off-Road, 8th annual Grand Junction Off-Road, and 5th annual Carson City Off-Road.
