A free form race inspired by alleycat races but like no other in the mtb world, the Gnarly will test your ingenuity, endurance, prowess as well as your GMT passion. Collect tokens for all twenty plus trails in the order that will get you to the finish line first. This is not a scavenger hunt. We have nothing to hide. But make no mistake, even if you’ve ridden the trails a hundred times before, it will still be an adventure!
This is the tenth year of our challenge and one thing's for sure: We haven't grown softer with age! When we began this race we figured the best racers would eke out six laps, but these days even the elite would be lucky to manage four. This race makes no compromises. Not much double track. Flow and gnar in equal measures. Fifteen hundred feet of climbing per lap and nearly 12 miles. Great views if you have enough energy left to hold your gaze.
