This will be our third year in Routt National Forest north of Steamboat Springs, CO. 2019’s course was on challenging single track throughout the hills just east of Pearl Lake. The 2021 race will be near Steamboat Lake State Park. The elevation on the course will range between 8,000 ft and 9,500 — It will be very hilly with travel on both single track and forest service roads.
The first communication with racers will be sent out the first week of June. Additional lodging information is found in the email.
There is a waiting list for this race.
