The Whole Enchilada

Over 40 miles of trail are calling your name…  The Whole Enchilada pins mountain bikers against the entirety of the USNWC trail system, taking on Todas las Millas (all the miles) in this single-lap format race. New trails are being added regularly by the USNWC, allowing riders to crush through more and more miles each year. Riders looking to shred their way through a shorter distance can take on roughly half the trail system in The Half Enchilada.
