The 3rd Annual Ride Sun Valley Bike Festival will take place in Sun Valley, Idaho, from June 29 to July 6, featuring eight days of races and events.

Sun Valley was recently named as an IMBA Epic Ride Center, and this year’s Ride Sun Valley event will host the USA Cycling Marathon Mountain Bike National Championships as part of its celebratory offerings. New events will be added to this year’s lineup, including the Sun Valley Super Enduro Pro Open, Ride Sun Valley Bike Demo Days, Ketchum Criterium, Bald Juan Cross Country and the Massv Music Festival.

Marathon competitors will take on a modified two-lap version of the 2012 USA Cycling Amateur Cross Country Mountain Bike National Championship course, and a one-lap race will be offered for those interested in racing a cross-country length event.
