Overview

This is a fun, fast course that incorporates plenty of doubletrack for passing riders, while adding the technical and quintessential aspects of Southern Utah riding.

Description

For the most part, you'll lead out on doubletrack, then work your way into the the JEM Trail singletrack. You'll certainly be tested on your fitness during this race; as there is ample area to pass.

In addition, the climbing is not sufficient enough to truly separate the group like most of the summer time ICUP races. This route has one technical section to watch out for. Some will opt to walk, rather than ride through it.
