The Grand Enduro will be featuring the Ribbon Trail as it's opening stage. This iconic trail of Grand Junction, CO has never had a mountain bike race on it, until now. Join us November 6th!
The first ever Grand Enduro is set to hit Grand Junction, Colorado November 6th, 2016. This one-day event will be showcasing some of the best trails in the valley as well as some of the most difficult terrain.
Anyone that has had the pleasure to ride the iconic Ribbon Trail high above the town of Grand Junction can attest it’s uniqueness. For the first time ever, the local BLM is opening up this trail to race! This trail opens with an amazing wide open slick rock downhill. You will want to be sure to have fresh pads because top speeds may exceed 50 miles per hour!
This three stage race rounds out with the Gunny Loop downhill, a local long-time favorite that is consistently maintained by COPMOBA. After completing Gunny Loop you pedal back to the top of the Lunch Loops to race what we are naming Max Gnar; Freelunch, Pucker Up and Moto. This race course comes with drops and big views; look at your own risk.
This is a real enduro race. There are no lifts and there are no flow trails. You will work hard going up and down with terrain that is raw and trails that are technical. You will need fitness, and this race will prove who is the best overall desert enduro racer.
With the event HQ basing out of The Camp, Grand Junction’s newest and only in town camping, you won’t need to worry about parking or a place to stay. A mile from downtown and two miles from the trails, The Camp is neighbors with a grocery store, liquor store, coffee shop and several restaurants. Come out for a weekend of great Western Slope fall weather and be one of the first people ever to race down the Ribbon Trail!
