Emerald Mountain Epic's mission is to host Steamboat’s premier single track race experience.
We are a charity event that challenges racers to compete at their personal best while promoting safety, fun, camaraderie and community.
The 2020 Emerald Mountain Epic
Over the past few months, the Emerald Mountain Epic (EME) team worked diligently to exhaust all possible avenues, developing comprehensive mitigation plans, and communicating with the appropriate City and County authorities in an effort to put on a race that would be safe for both our participants and our community. After careful consideration, we’ve come to the conclusion that we would not be able to host the EME in a way that will both garner support from our local officials and still allow us to maintain our original mission of hosting Steamboat’s premier single track race experience. Ultimately, protecting the health and safety of the racers, as well as our community members, is the most important race we are in this summer, and one we all must win! While that might be hard for you to hear, there is good news! Knowing that this was always a possibility, we have been preparing for this scenario and are excited to announce the 2020 Emerald Mountain Epic, presented by Honey Stinger, Premier Virtual experience! Through our virtual experience, the event will still support two amazing local non-profits, Partners in Routt County and Routt County Riders!

After spending many summers in the Yampa Valley, Eli Campbell moved to Steamboat Springs in 2004 after graduating from the University of Colorado. He competed and coached for the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club’s freestyle skiing program before landing a job with local radio station KFMU, for which he produced events both large and small. Following his passion for travel, Eli moved into a world of creating, developing and supporting active travel events for Iconic Adventures, such as SmartWool’s Ride to OR, Coast 2 Coast 4 Cancer, Race Across America and more. In 2015, Eli started Sentio Cycling, which produces and supports the Arthritis Foundation’s California Coast Classic cycling tour.
