I thought this was about races, sorry. These routes look interesting, but seem more like a Grand Fondo on dirt. The BFSL and DDC look the best while the halfass's slog up berthoud pass on a mtb would not be so much fun.

I think the Rico one will be the most epic, but it does involve a lot of route finding. Hope to see you at one or two of these.

Also thanks for the updates on the RM Ultra. I assume VT125 will be 9/11 and am hoping 12hrs of Snowmass will go for 9/18. Is the Steamboat 12/24 pretty much dead now or will it come back this year?

From what Chuck told me about the HA 100 it sounds like a tough day out - and I think he did it something like a week or so after almost 400 miles on CTR this year. I was still holding my couch to the ground at that point.

I need to get something similar together up here - time to hit the maps again.

I've heard nothing about it comming back. We have a LAF fundraiser ride scheduled for this summer in S'boat, and the Kent's, Tour de Steamboat, and a "grand fondo" that does the TdeS'boat backwards, and the neo-classic Steamboat Stage Race Labor day weekend, but no real mtb races besides the Town challenge. Progress is being made toward building DH specific trails on the ski area so maybe someday we'll be able to get the MSC back in town.

I'm thinking the series needs a Steamboat event. Will someone wake up Marko?

I am putting this on my official radar. I'm pretty sure I could probably make this happen. How would this compare to the Taos DBT in terms of effort level? The DBT hurt my soul.
Same level of effort for sure as DBT. But at higher elevations. ;)

Hope to see you there. Sounds like Cody is in. :thumbsup:

Yeah, I'm not officially *in* but I'm pretty giddy about the concept. As long as things go well at the shop this season I should already be in CO during that week. It sure seems like a nice coincidence. :D

Matt- certainly someone can come up with a total elevation gained estimate? And what about a target finishing time?

I pulled out my Lat 40 map today and looked over the route. Dahum! This thing looks big. Based off some of the riding I've done in that area I was guessing a 14-18hr time frame (maybe more). We've done Kennebec multiple times and that climb up from the wood bridge on the CTR is pretty stout especially at night. We've done Bolam to Black Hawk to Coral a few times too and thats nothing to take lightly. I've not even mentioned getting to the Hermosa TH behind the ski resort! I have a feeling we'll be bringing quite a few ppl with us when we come this summer.

Good work Matt.

DDC actually should move relatively fast. I did the route last year going up Hotel Draw instead of doing the Blackhawk loop and from my house - with a bit of in town trail thrown in - that came out to be 90 miles, 10.5k climbing, 10-hours at not necessarily a race pace. Blackhawk itself is usually a 3-4 hour loop from top of Hermosa. Should end up in the 115-mile, 15k range.

I suppose the start time could be moved up earlier if it helps.
