The Grand Enduro is a classic Grand Valley mountain bike race hosted on one of the few “shuttle-able” local trails in and around Grand Junction’s Lunch Loops Trail System. MAD Racing Colorado secured the permits to take you down this legendary route for the 3rd year in a row.
The Grand Enduro course will challenge you on three demanding stages. For those unfamiliar, the nature of these trails is very technical and require expert handling skills as well as solid fitness. You’ll start on an otherworldly, humongous slab of rock and be hitting speeds in excess of 30mph in a matter of seconds. Riders who aren’t racing generally take their time on this section to carve the lunar-like landscape, but the clock will be running on you! You need to get off that rock and onto the singletrack as soon as possible! We’ll have it heavily taped, but pay particular attention during practice for landmarks that will help you navigate the correct route – a missed turn or off-course excursion could cost you loads of time, at best, and at worst, send you plummeting off a cliff!
