Race Course for 2018

In 2018 we are looking at adding a few miles of trail in the Happy Jack area, and maybe making a couple of small changes in the Vedauwoo area. Below are the details and maps for 2017. We'll get updated info for 2018 as soon as we have things finalized in the spring.

The course for 2017 was a 28 mile loop with somewhere between 3100 (strava) and 3800 (trailforks) feet of climbing per lap, depending on what software you believe. About 68% single track, 15% two-track/jeep road, and 17% graded dirt road.

The single track ranges from wide open and fast to narrow cow trail, smooth easy cruising to rocky, technical climbs and descents. The Epic will do 2 laps or you can opt for the One and Done. Treat yourself to some beautiful views and great riding at the Enduro.

Aid Stations:

There will be two aid stations spaced about 10 miles apart on the loop, plus one at the lap. Each will have water, Honey Stinger gels, bars, waffles & chews; Hammer Endurolyte capsules, Heed, & Perpetuem (solids and powder); Gatorade, fruit, other kinds of energy bars, bagels or bread, peanut butter and jelly, cookies, pretzels, and other snacks.
There will not be cups or bottles to hand you, but we will have plenty of people around to help fill your bottles or packs.

Cut-off Times:

For Epic racers:
Start second lap by 12:30 (5 hours into the race).
Aid station cut-offs on lap two will be determined after we know exactly where they will be on course.

For One and Done racers:
TBD.

If you miss the cut-off time at a mid course aid station, you will be shown a short way back to the start/finish. It's up to you to get back on your own. Your race number will be recorded and you will be listed as DNF in the results. You must take off your race number to avoid confusion for race staff.

Pit Crews:

Info coming in the spring.

Course Hazards:

All dirt roads on the course are open to traffic. We will do our best to alert drivers, but not getting smashed by a car is ultimately your responsibility. The course is open to livestock grazing, so don't be surprised to see cattle. Other than that, it's a mountain bike course and you should expect everything associated with that.

Course Marking:

Courses are marked with red diamond shaped signs with white arrows and pink flagging. We may also use orange cones or barracade tape to mark some intersections.

This race is heavily dependent on volunteers!
