Course Description: Come see what the local mountain goats ride every day. Each 25 mile lap has 5400’ of climbing. Fortunately for you a bunch of that is on the climb out of Breckenridge on the old narrow gauge Railroad grade. The race starts the 4th of July Parade in a neutral start format by start wave. From there the odyssey sends you into the Backcountry. There are a couple of grunty little climbs (especially coming out of Lincoln Park, locals hate that one), a couple of long lungbusters (up past the old snowplow at Iowa Mill and Little French), some absolutely rippin’ descents (from Humbug to Lincoln Park) and plenty of contouring flume and singletrack (Little French Flume) for you to mash on your big ring (or your only ring if your sick enough to go singlespeed, right Tim G?). See website for maps.
