Cancelled – 2020 Gowdy Grinder
June 13 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the race organizers have made the difficult decision to cancel the race for 2020. They plan to bring the race back bigger and better in 2021, so keep track of the status of the 2021 race, tentatively planned for June 12, 2021, on the WyoX website: https://wyoxmtb.org/gowdygrinder.
The 2020 Gowdy Grinder MTB race takes place on Saturday June 13, at Curt Gowdy State Park.
