From the Promoter:
Inspired by the new True Grit Lauf Gravel Bike, this race is Pure Gravel Bliss!
Set in the rugged hills just west of the red rock desert mecca of St George UT, racers will climb to heights with mind-blowing views, roll through canyons of the Beaver Dam NCA, explore the wild land of the Joshua Tree forest, before finally dropping into the cool oasis of the Santa Clara River basin.
With a course of 84 miles & over 80% of the course off-road, and 8362 ft of climbing. Racers can expect to tackle obstacles like the climb up Hard Root Beer Hill and the Rollers of Doom, just to name a few.
The course starts and finishes in the tree-lined enclave of Santa Clara City. Expect a warm, small-town reception the moment you arrive. The event ends with streets lined with spectators cheering you on. Then enjoy a live rock band, while basking in the sun on the grass field, sipping a beer and enjoying a complementary massage.
Limited to 250 participants for 2019.
