As acknowledged by each rider during the registration process, Epic Rides follows a strict non-refundable registration policy.  We do, however, understand that “life” happens… The following exceptions will be considered:

  • COVID diagnosis – please provide a doctor’s note or proof of diagnosis
  • Unscheduled military service – please provide a copy of your orders
  • Debilitating injury or illness – please provide a doctor’s note
  • Death of immediate family member – understanding this is a sensitive situation, Epic Rides will work with you; some sort of verification may be requested

Please complete this form to request a transfer to another event or a refund. Transfers and refunds will begin being processed 30 days after event weekend.

*All Transfer or Refund requests must be submitted within two weeks after the event. 

 



Much like dropping in on a steep rocky descent or committing to ride a distance outside of your comfort zone, risk is inherent in our sport.

The act of registering for an Epic Rides event, although not quite as dangerous as riding your bike, presents risks.

Epic Rides takes great pride in the high level of organization and scenic venues our events utilize. In order to assure each event is up to par with Epic Rides expectations it’s critical we make sure nature is cooperating in the effort to avoid unnecessary impacts on both the rider and the trails.

If an act of God or another event beyond our control occurs, what can event participants expect?

  1. Decisions made by Epic Rides will be based on participant safety & environmental impact. Oftentimes these decisions are in the hands of the landowners or agencies through which our events are permitted.
  2.  If an event is required to be cancelled due to circumstances beyond our control, Epic Rides requires each participant to accept the financial responsibility of their entry fee.

The skinny: Epic Rides does not save any money if you do not participate. Epic Rides needs to pay for all the supplies and services associated with the event, regardless of the outcome. These include (but are not limited to) permits, third-party vendors, transport, administrative expenses, and awards

The COVID EXCEPTION.

COVID Cancellation Policy: As COVID’s presence evolves, Epic Rides is making its best efforts to produce mountain bike events safely while avoiding financial insolvency.

Appreciating the amount of upfront costs that are required to be incurred prior to an event weekend, if an event is required to cancel due to COVID, registrants will receive the following:

Priority + Discounted Registration into 2024 Whiskey Off-Road 

2023 Refund Amount

  • 90+ days out – 70% refund
  • 60-89 days out – 50% refund
  • 30-59 days out – 40% refund
  • 29 days or less – 25% credit toward 2024 event

*Refunds and/or credit exclude processing fees and donations

If you feel further conversation is necessary, we welcome your phone call at 520-623-1584.



Each registration includes a $20 donation toward event fundraising efforts.

The Whiskey Off-Road raises funds for the Yavapai County Food Bank (YFB), Prevent Child Abuse Arizona and other local and national non-profit organizations. The YFB feeds 4,000-5,000 families a month through its main distribution center in Prescott Valley.
