SSWC09 Course Map
The race will be saturday morning at 11am from the Durango Cyclery, on 13th street and Main Avenue. The entire race is a stones throw from downtown and should be easy to get out and spectate. Please be cautious when out on the course prior to race day. There are a lot of trail users out there and several sections of the course are run in reverse on race day. Course Map
It is about 22 miles we think. We are planning at a 2hour winning time with DFL being 5. The course is marked with orange fagging and can be best accessed through the Horse Gulch trailhead. The Power line trail is where the race begins once we have ridden through the town portion of the course. To practice, head to the powerline trail and head north. It is a steep up and down course and most of the locals are running 2-5 easier on a 26inch 2:1 set up. There is the highly acclaimed 2.5mile Raider Ridge Trail that will be super sweetly tough, be prepared to focus. The Raider Ride loop rides through the finish area and then heads out to the Horse Gulch trail network. You can get water before you head out for the final section. We will not have feeds. You must bring what you need. We will have course marshals at like 30 spots on course as well as 10 emergency honches.
