The Steamboat Stinger, now a Colorado classic, aims to provide a challenging backcountry race experience showcasing some of Steamboat Springs' finest singletrack.
You can expect singletrack…lots of it. Beginning at the Howelsen Hill Ski Area right in the heart of Steamboat, the course takes an extended tour deep into the beautiful backcountry of Routt County before returning to the transition/finish area. Racers will wind through open meadows, aspen forests and wild sage gardens offering incredible views of the surrounding peaks and valleys.
It's a 50+ mile race, composed of two 26.2 mile loops - 100% of which are on dirt featuring 90% singletrack.
