Whiskey Off-Road returns to Arizona

More than 600 riders are expected to converge at the Fourth Annual Whiskey Off-Road kicks on May 19 for a 25 or 50 Proof race or a 15 Proof fun ride in the 1.25 million acre Prescott National Forest. The "Proof" theme pays homage to the infamous Whiskey Row element of downtown Prescott, Arizona, an entire city block of watering hole type of establishments; a "proof" in this case represents one mile (1.6km).

Among those attending will be Mountain Bike Hall of Fame inductee Keith Bontrager and endurance pro racer Mike Janelle (Tokyo Joe's/X-Fusion Shox), who won the four-person division of the 2006 Race Across America.

"The Prescott National Forest has been very supportive of mountain biking, and this is helping make Prescott a destination mountain bicycling community, with all the economic benefits that accrue," said Todd Sadow, president of Epic Rides, Inc., the event's organizer. "We're pleased to be a part of showcasing the great trails and friendly community in Prescott."
