About the Eagle Outside Festival

Just 20-some minutes west of Vail where the Rockies sweep down to join Colorado’s Western Slope, Eagle is known as a secret stash for mountain bikers. Appearing on the national radar screen just a few short years ago as it launched its unique Singletrack Sidewalks program, Eagle has quietly, yet authoritatively asserted itself as as “the next, best place to live”.

Launched over 10 years ago, the Eagle Outside Festival was created to showcase Eagle’s great weather, fantastic dining, a rapidly maturing craft brewing scene and best of all, its sprawling trail network. The trails are the star of the show at our event. Spanning three different climate zones (from high desert to high alpine and everything in between,) they’re also accessible from just about anywhere in town.

The centerpieces of our festival are the consumer demo and the insanely sweet Haymaker Hotlap Mountain Bike Time Trial race on one of the fastest purpose built cross country courses anywhere. The demo attracts the bike industry’s best brands and the racing is top-notch. As an extra bonus, attendees can enjoy The Bonfire Block Party, a downtown throwdown of a street party with national touring musicians, great craft beer and more in a unique downtown venue. There’s a little something for everyone here in Eagle the weekend of June 1-3, so think about heading our way for your riding, racing and music-loving fix!

Hotlap Segments

We have made a change to the Haymaker Hotlap as originally planned.  We have gotten rid of the registration and opened it up to more of Eagle trails.  We are now going to explore all of the trails that Eagle has to offer and reward riders for their performance on select segments around town using GPS data.  When you check in at the Eagle Outside Festival Demo, check out the list of daily segments and go ride.  Stop back by the Dusty Boot at 3:00 pm and we will hand out prizes for the riders at the top of the leaderboard.

Rules

  1. Don’t be a jerk.  Your time is not worth injuring someone else.  If you are reported as being disrespectful on the trails you will be ineligible for prizes and publicly shamed.  That being said, please report extra awesome behavior because we will have some prizes for that as well!
  2. Wear your helmet.
  3. Don’t litter.

The Segments

We will release the list of segments each morning of the demo.  There will be some uphill segments, downhill segments, etc.

Beer Mile & Milk (& Cookies!) Run

4 laps, 4 deliciously cold draughts of 7 Hermits Beer or 4 similarly bubbly non-alcoholic facsimiles for the teetotalers (that means non-drinkers). Which of the 7 Hermits Brews will you be drinking?  Spin the wheel and find out!  Oh, you don’t have a sense of adventure?  $20 to race and let the wheel decide your future.  Pay $5 extra and get to pick your flavor.  Winners receive a $100 Gift Card to 7 Hermits, some sweet swag and 12-pack of glory, individually packaged in eco-friendly and 100% recyclable 12oz containers.  Which will be sweet. And which will TRUMPET your awesomeness from now until the day you shuffle off your mortal coil. Or until you lose it. Or until the day when one of your pals (in a fit of envy-fueled pique & pettiness) steals it from you. Then the awesome transfers to them (with a bit of a karmic ding).

The beer category is open to runners, ball’rs and bon vivants 21 years or older. Solo and 2-person team categories available. Not 21? Don’t like beer? We’ll have fizzy non-alcoholic drinks on hand for non-drinkers. If you’re 18 or under, sign up for the Milk (& Cookies!) Run.

Howzat work? What’s the Milk and Cookies Run, you ask? Great question! It’s a race for kids 18 and under and broken into teams of 2 or 4. After each lap the runners need to consume one glass of milk (chocolate or regular) and one chocolate chip cookie.

Registration will be onsite at 7 Hermits Brewery on Saturday June 2nd.
