How do you make an epically difficult, classic mountain bike trail classic even harder? By doing it in reverse, of course.

Back in September, Braydon Bringhurst dropped a short trailer for his audacious idea. 

He aimed to complete the classic Moab trail “The Whole Enchilada,” but backward. This icon of trail involves 8,600 feet of elevation gain along extremely challenging terrain.
