The Grand Enduro will challenge you on three demanding stages in and around Grand Junction's Lunch Loops trail system. For those unfamiliar, the nature of these trails are very technical and require expert handling skills as well as solid fitness.
What to expect:
Chunky, desert terrain that's hard on body and equipment - bring sturdy tires and spare tubes!
Stages will lose significant elevation, but lack sustained steeps - be ready to pedal! However, this is no XC race, so bring your well equipped all-mountain bike. You'll hate it on some of the punchy, short climbs but wish you were on an even bigger bike at some points!
All stages feature at least a few "moves" - sections of trail that are particularly precarious. Where possible we'll have go-arounds, however these will generally cost you time! Pre-riding all stages is definitely recommended and required for stages 1 and 3.
22-35 minutes of racing over 6.2 miles of trail. 2.5-4 hours of total ride time covering ~22 miles.
