Choose 1 or 2 laps on a ~30 mile loop of ~68% singletrack, ~15% two-track/jeep road, and ~17% graded dirt. Singletrack ranges from smooth and flowy to steep and technical. ~3,500 feet of climbing per lap. Beautiful high altitude (over 7,500 feet) alpine forests and grasslands of the Medicine Bow National Forest.
We are looking to build on the success of the 2017 race in 2018. The course should remain fundamentally the same with the choice of one or two laps. We are looking at a few changes that should add a few more of miles of singletrack and get us right at 30 miles per lap. We're also going to throw in another aid station on course allowing the racer types to carry a lighter load, and the more leisurely riders another chance to relax. As always, the loop will include the familiar Happy Jack and Vedauwoo areas, winding you through beautiful rock formations on primitive trails and fast forested singletrack. From wildlife trails to singletrack to dirt roads, the course is equally well suited for geared bikes and single speeds. All at elevations over 7,500 feet, you'll race over high grass plains and down through serene aspen and pine forests.
