Whiskey Off-Road Recap

The 12th annual Whiskey Off-Road went off over the weekend in Prescott, AZ. With 2,000 riders and many more spectating along the route, it was a great first half to the two-part Epic Rides Off-Road Series, which will conclude with the Grand Junction Off-Road on May 29-31st.

A bit of rain made for tacky trails in Prescott National Forest while 55 industry vendors includuding Shimano, Stan’s NoTubes, Pivot Cycles, Maxxis Tires, Camelbak, Endura, KMC and more held court downtown. Fat Tire Crits, live music and relaxed Fun Rides also contributed to the festival-like atmosphere, while a $30,000, equal payout cash purse ensured that everyone on the podium went home happy. Check out results and photos below.

Epic Rides looks forward to seeing everyone in Grand Junction, CO on May 29-31 at the 3rd Annual Grand Junction Off-Road, the next installment in the Epic Rides Off-Road Series. Find out more at epicrides.com
