What to expect On-Course

  • You will ride a combination of mostly single track and a little bit of gravel road between stages, with all stages raced on single-track only. 

  • At each stage, you will line up for your turn - expect a line. Its good to bring a coat to stay comfortable while waiting. 

  • We also attempt to group racers by category for each stage, however, we expect that racers from different categories will start to mix more on later race stages. Be prepared for passing; be patient and courteous as both a passer and a passee. 

  • We have fabulous aid stations! However, they may be serving up food and drinks that may not work well for you. They will have water available for topping off bottles, but plan to be self-sufficient so you can be well-prepared for the day.   

  • We have amazing volunteers! It is how we are able to put on this race. Thank them often.

Sturdy Dirty Do's...and some don'ts... 

  • Keep track of your timing chip. $100 if you lose it!!!

  • Enjoy our aid stations

  • Enjoy a free meal and beverages (non-racer friends & family can purchase a lunch).

  • Hang out after the race for the awards and raffle. Raffle tickets and merchandise will also be for sale. 

  • Helmet Policy: While riding on the course you must wear your helmet (that includes climbing!!!!)

  • Heaphones Policy: NOT OKAY FOR RACING. It is imperative that you hear your surroundings while you are racing so that you can communicate with other racers generally and pass or be passed safely. 

  • Partner Policy: Your partner can only ride with you during the race if (a) your partner is also registered to race, or (b) they have been specifically provided a race plate and otherwise permitted to ride with you by the race organizers. NO EXCEPTIONS.

  • Dog Policy: Please leave your dog at home - we love dogs, but there are lots of people and not much space. It’s a good recipe for disaster. If you must bring your dog, they must be leashed and in your control at all times. They are not allowed on the course. And PICK UP THE POO! Nobody likes poop-shoes.  

 

Gear List 

  • Timing chip: You will get your timing chip when you pick up your race packet. If you pick your race packet up on Friday night DON'T FORGET IT ON SATURDAY!!

  • Hydration and Nutrition: Bring enough water and food to fullfill your own hydration and nutritional needs. We have fabulous aid stations but we don't recommend that you rely on that unless you like bacon and whiskey to fuel your performance. They should have water, but it's gonna be hot and they may run out! There is a creek at the bottom of CCDH that can supply you with cold water if you have a water filter. 

  • Basic bike supplies: Tube, plugs, CO2 cartridge or pump, tire levers, multi-tool, master link, etc.

  • Helmet and armor: Helmet, eye-protection, armor/body protection. A Full face helmet is not required but highly recommended.
