ituated in the Laramie Range of Southeastern Wyoming, this course covers some of the best mountain bike trails in the region. The course is a fast and extremely fun loop, covering no ground twice. It includes virtually every kind of trail and surface a mountain biker is likely to encounter in the Rockies, from wildlife trails to single track to dirt roads. It is equally well suited for geared bikes and single speeds.
The course is a challenging 70+ miles which climbs over 8,600 vertical feet, all at elevations over 7,500 feet. You’ll race over high grassVedauwoo plains, through serene aspen and pine forests, and through the renowned rock-climbing venue of the Vedauwoo (pronounced Veda-Voo) Recreation Area. This event is not for the casual rider. You can finish this race, but don’t take it lightly.
As an experienced rider, you’ll know to plan your fueling carefully. Bring what you need and pack out what you bring. Leave no trace. We’ll have at least five aid stations strategically placed along the course with plenty of fuel to supplement your supplies.
Aid-StationOnce you’ve crossed the finish line, we’ll be waiting with your results, hot food, plenty to drink, wonderful massages, and music. Some of the regions finest restaurants will chip in scrumptious complimentary cuisine and complimentary microbrews will be available from regional brewers.
Mother Nature brings it all to the high plains of southern Wyoming. It’s likely to be warmer or colder than you expected. Bring sunscreen. Bring a coat. Bring your “A” game. Leave tired with a smile.
Race proceeds benefit the Albany County Chapter of the American Red Cross of Wyoming, Medicine Bow Mountain Bike Patrol, and other local non-profit organizations.
