The excitement starts on Saturday morning with mountain bike races of 20, 40, 60 and 100 miles. The routes take you through some of the most wildly beautiful and challenging terrain in southeastern Arizona and southwestern New Mexico. The trails climb quickly from the Gila River Valley into the stony peaks of the Summit Mountains. The rambling mountain road follows the old route to Silver City — and possibly the route of the 1540 Coronado Expedition — passing the sites of historic Apache-settler battles and ruins of mining towns and camps. Mountain bikes are strongly advised!
If you are interested in pre-riding the course, please contact Daniel Carver at 575-649-9142 or firstname.lastname@example.org to set up access. The routes cross private land and permissions must be obtained for pre-rides.
Directions: After entering Duncan on US Highway 70 turn east on AZ 75 (the only direction you can go) for approximately ¼ mile. Turn left on Fairgrounds Rd and follow the signs. If approaching Duncan on AZ 75 proceed to Fairgrounds RD (before the bridge into Duncan) turn right and follow the signs.
Packet pick-up will start at 6:45 AM at the Greenlee County Fairgrounds on Saturday 4/6/19.
Just bring your number from Saturday's race to the Sunday ride. DON'T TRY TO REGISTER for Sunday if you are riding Saturday since we can't waive the gravel grinder fee for you online. Sorry about any confusion! Any fee erroneously paid for the Sunday event will be refunded race day.
