On the western slope of Colorado, the famous Kokopelli Trail winds its way through sagebrush, ledgy slickrock, winding double track, sandy washes, fast jeep trails and crosses the state line toward Moab, Utah. This trail is the site of the Desert RATS MTB Classic. The 50K & 100K endurance mountain bike races are challenging tests of stamina. Held in May, it’s a great early season test of fitness and a great reason to keep training through the winter and early spring. The courses cover a wide variety of terrain including challenging technical terrain, grueling climbs, fast flats and tricky descents.
Local time: 3:44 AM
This event is challenging and should not be taken lightly. While it is not designed for the casual rider, you can finish with focused and adequate training. The 100K race will have five well stocked aid stations along the course. Every racer that finishes the 100K in less than 6hrs receives a “Gonzo” finisher’s award, we’ll have a sub-10hr “Enduro” award, and three deep awards in men’s and women’s categories. The 50K racers will have three aid stations and will receive a finisher’s memento and age group awards. 50K racers will also have 10hrs to complete the course.
