We offer three race lengths to challenge riders of all abilities.
The 24-mile Cushe “Chiller” has approx. 1200 feet of elevation,
The 36-mile Smith Optics “Thriller” climbs approx. 2200 feet
The 62-mile Foundry Cycles “Killer” you can expect approx. 3800 feet of elevation.
We also offer a team competition category. Race as an individual AND see how your team stacks up against some of the areas best
