    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.

    Trails Ridden:

    The second part of this is up now, lots more singletrack and downhill for your enjoyment!

    Thanks for sharing.  I”m not going to do the race, but it does look like there’s some new-to-me singletrack I’d like to check out on my next Fruita run.

      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.

      The final part of this is now up, this includes the new section of singletrack to finish the Grand Junction Off-Road, both the 30 and 40 Grand.

    Anyone else headed to Grand Junction for the Off-Road? I’m getting excited to ride this again.
