Endurance mountain bike racing at its Western best. This is an endurance mountain bike event with 25-mile (one loop), 50-mile (two loops) and 100-mile (four loops) distance options. The course is a 25-mile loop on Forest Service roads. The course is not technically challenging, and is considered a "roadie" mountain bike course, meaning it is beginner friendly(ish) and fast for those with more experience. There are a few sketchy spots to keep you honest and climbs to make your lungs hurt a bit. All in all you are riding at altitude, in cooler weather, with cool people and camping out — what more can you ask for?
Start Elevation: 7199 ft
Max Elevation: 8021 ft
Elevation Gain (per loop): 2493 ft
Elevation Gain (total for four loops): 9972 ft
We're looking forward to another fun event! Join us Friday evening for packet pickup and rad tunes. Saturday morning, while parents are out riding, kids can participate in planned events including short track races by age, frisbee and bean bag toss games and other activities. Post–race athlete food from the local legendary Big Foot BBQ will be available for sale. The awards ceremony will take place Saturday afternoon, beverages provided by Local Favorite Historic Brewing Company. 100% of proceeds benefit local trails leader Flagstaff Biking Organization whose leadership in trail construction and maintenance efforts has resulted in numerous partnerships and collaborations between mountain bikers and other trail users leading to more, and better maintained, trails. These collaborations also contribute to better understanding between user-groups and a healthier social environment for all recreational trail users.
