Due to ongoing public safety concerns brought about by the COVID-19 crisis, we’ve made the difficult decision to drastically alter the format of Outlier 2020. We wish we had better news to pass along, but with nearly every demo event across the country cancelled, most bicycle brands have chosen to liquidate their demo fleets. There simply are no bikes, or at least, there are very few of them.
More importantly, we are a small and relatively isolated community. While we have excellent medical facilities, it’s also fair to say that compared to larger urban areas, we have with limited medical resources. A large demo event makes social distancing next to impossible and contributes to the potential spread of the virus.
We’re working diligently with our partners at the Town of Vail to integrate the modest number of attending brands with our inaugural North American Van Show (Sep 25-27, 2020). This event will be located within the Lionshead Village and on the mezzanine level of the Lionshead Parking Structure in Vail. At this moment we’re working with permitting and public health agencies to develop a plan that will bring you the established and rising stars within the adventure vehicle market (with a healthy dose of some of your favorite bike brands).
In recognition of the fact that Outlier 2020 will be significantly more modest than in years past, attendance will be free.
Please stay tuned for more details – as soon as we have a few more green lights, we’ll publish updated Outlier and Van Show info.
Hope we see you there –
