The Epic Rides Series of mountain bike races concluded this past weekend with the Oz Trails Off-Road in Bentonville, Arkansas. There was rain, mud, and plenty of flat tires. On this week’s episode of The VeloNews Show we discuss all of the carnage at the race.

Plus, why has the Epic Rides series succeeded where other off-road series have not? We take an inside look at the mountain bike series that is bringing big-time mountain bike racing back to the United States.

All that and more on this week’s The VeloNews Show.
