Preskitt Pass & Amateur Wave Starts

Preskitt Pass

The Preskitt Pass is a list of riders who have finished within one hour of the 1st-place rider of their distance, in the last two years of any Epic Rides Series event or Tour of the White Mountains. This is not based on category or gender, but based on distance. These riders will be placed in the front corral of the first wave.

THE PRESKITT PASS LIST

If you have a question about the Preskitt Pass list, please e-mail jenny@epicrides.com.

Amateur Wave Starts

In the interest of optimizing your ride experience, distances with 500+ participants will be broken into wave starts. This enhances rider safety while decreasing potential impact to the trails. Ride times are based on when the rider crosses the start line and finish line.

To determine which wave start suits you best, we’ve taken into consideration:

  • Your self-determined estimated finishing time input at registration
  • Your last year finishing time if available

Spectator Directions

So you’re ready to do some cheering and support riders when they need it most? Great, choose either of the two locations below to do some hooting and hollering while supporting friends, family and random riders. Just remember to be respectful of the Prescott National Forest and volunteers in the area that are helping with crowd control. And, don’t forget your cowbell!

Location 1: Intersection of Copper Basin Rd. and Thumb Butte Rd./FR 373. To access this location, spectators are required to drive up Copper Basin Rd. For rider safety purposes, absolutely no vehicles will be allowed to access the course past this intersection. Please plan to park and hang out while cheering on riders as they approach the final mile of the climb from the Copper Basin aid station. Spectators are welcome to walk to Sierra Prieta Overlook from here if they’d like an expansive view of the riders ascending from Skull Valley!

Riders will begin passing through this section at 9:45a on Saturday & 10:00a on Sunday. 

Directions to Copper Basin/Thumb Butte from Downtown Prescott

Location 2: The creek crossing just before riders exit the trail system and return toward downtown Prescott on Thumb Butte Rd. To access this location, spectators are encouraged to drive to Thumb Butte Park. Park their cars ($5 cash forest service fee) and then walk to the creek crossing nearby. This location can get a little rowdy… 

Directions to Thumb Butte Park from Downtown Prescott

Riders will begin passing through this section at 10:15a on Saturday & 11:00a on Sunday.

Spectators note: Please remember to be a good steward of the land when venturing into nature. Pack out what you pack in. Thank you!
