On my annual spring trip to the west slope of Colorado I decided to preview the new Grand Junction Off-Road 40 Grand course so that I’m not racing blind in just a few weeks. Epic Rides has redone the end of the 30 and 40 Grand races, so if you haven’t checked it out the map is on trailforks. I broke my video up into 3 parts, for length and to edit out the pavement sections. In part 1 I ride from town to Lunch Loops and then up Tabeguache and Gunny Loop. In part 2, which I should have up tomorrow, shows the Twist N Shout and Butterknife sections. Finally, part 3 should finish up the series with the new terrain. I’ll keep posting links as I get them out.
This was my first time checking out the trails around the Lunch Loops and was blown away, kinda sad I had only hit Troy and 18 Rd before that. If you haven’t tried Lunch Loops on Fruita trips, make a point of doing so.
