AntiEpic Gravel Grinder Double Century
Date: Saturday, April 27, 2019
It’s April..and it’s Colorado! So please expect sunshine, rain, snow, wind, cold, and mud! Please bring the appropriate riding gear, a good attitude, and a smile!
Course: AntiEpic Long Course: 200 miles. 11,000 feet
- Course Notes:
- The AntiEpic Gravel Grinder starts and ends in Monument, Colorado, traveling northeast along undulating country roads through the town of Elbert en route to Deer Trail just off of I-70. The course then makes the challenging return to Monument via a different route, gaining a majority of its 11,000 feet of climbing en route back to Monument.
- The 2019 Long Course is essentially the same course used during the AntiEpic from 2012 – 2016 (168 miles + an extra 32+ miles out-and-back through Castlewood Canyon State Park). The course no longer includes the nasty B-Road, County Road 98, due to permanent closure of this road to traffic.
- As in previous years, the course will be unmarked. Riders are responsible for navigating the course using either the official cue sheet (which will be e-mailed to pre-registered riders during the week prior to the event) OR the Garmin file, which can be downloaded from the links above.
- Tortoises: Sign-in: 2:45 AM, Start: 3:00 AM. Hares: Sign in: 3:15 am, Start: 4:00 AM.
