Colorado Gravel Grinder Championships event.
The PX 160 is made up of gravel county roads and that travel northwest Trinidad,Colorado. Each distance has only 10k of blacktop. Unlike Leadville Trail 100 or Rocky Mountain Endurance series,which are loops or out and back, each distance contains mostly new terrain. Consisting of rolling foothills, forests and open plains with stunning views of Fisher Peak. At no point do you ride or even cross a state highway. 70% of the course is in tree sheltered or canyon areas that are less susceptible to wind. So it’s unlikely you’ll face the winds of Dirty Kanza. Roads are open to public vehicle traffic as well as cattle (open range). Much of the course travels thru historic mining areas. Elevations range from 6,000 feet to 8,800 feet. Typical temps range from 50 degrees at start to 75 degrees mid day. Put away those heavy Dirty Kanza tires. These roads are fine gravel, so lighter tires can be run. If you hate competing with cars and love riding quiet gravel roads, then this is your event. This course will not disappoint! All participants must have a GPS, as the course is unmarked .
