On Saturday, September 17th, Overland will be partnering with the Laramie Enduro and Wyoming State Parks to host this fundraiser race for the Cheyenne and Laramie high school MTB racing league teams and the Stone Temple Kid’s Mountain Bike Camps held each June at Curt Gowdy State Park. This is an event that everyone looks forward to, due to the unique format and the relaxed feel of the race. It’s an eight hour race around a 15.1 mile loop of the IMBA Epic trail system at Curt Gowdy that can be raced as an individual or as a team, with up to three members. This is a race for the kids as well. All of the high school teams in the region are invited to participate in the race, as well as unaffiliated junior racers. There is also be a shorter race for the kids that do not want to do the full 8 hour race.
This 8-hour endurance mountain bike race takes place on the IMBA Epic designed single track trails at Wyoming’s Curt Gowdy State Park. Racers start at 9:30 am and compete for eight hours on an 15.1 mile loop, in teams or as individuals. Racers final laps must be completed by 5:30 PM to count.
The Special Junior Race starts immediately following the start of the main race. Race distances vary depending on ability: 3.5+ miles (Beginners), 7+ miles (Intermediates), and 15.1 miles (advanced) and take place on sections of the main race course. The start/finish will be located at the Aspen Grove Trailhead parking area, unless conditions require that we relocate the timer’s station to a different location.
