by | Nov 10, 2022 | Bike, Video Feature

Braydon Bringhurst sets out to climb the technical 27 mile long Whole Enchilada trail in Moab Utah, climbing 8600ft in one effort on his mountain bike.

Every now and then someone does something absolutely incredible in the sporting world. Eliud Kipchoge breaking the 2 hour marathon or Alex Honnold rock climbing the 1000m El Capitan with no safety, and now Braydon Bringhurst riding up the entirety of Moab’s famous Whole Enchilada trail. The Whole Enchilada is ridden as a descending trail that often takes riders several hours to complete. It is technical and physical riding, even with gravity on your side. To think of riding up the entirety of the trail is madness. Braydon adds extreme endurance to his renowned technical skills and explosive riding style to conquer this enormous feat.
