Ride Description and GPS Files
If you’re raced before, please note that for safety reasons, we’ve made some changes to the route. We’ve reversed the direction of the Kolob Reservoir Loop. We’ve also taken out the single-track on the final descent back to Cedar. Our Course Directors, who’ve been with the race since the beginning, agree that the updated route is best.
