Course Description: On the western slope of Colorado, the famous Kokopelli Trail winds its way through sagebrush, ledgy slickrock, winding double track, sandy washes, fast jeep trails and crosses the state line toward Moab, Utah. This trail is the site of the Desert RATS Classic. The 100 kilometer endurance mountain bike race is a challenging 61 miles test of stamina and includes the beautiful 13 mile Zion Curtain Loop Trail. Or you can ride the 50K mountain bike race which is a fun out and back on the rugged Kokopelli Trail. Held in May, it’s a great early season test of fitness and a great reason to keep training through the winter and early spring. The course is equally well suited for geared bikes and single speeds and covers a wide variety of terrain including challenging technical terrain, grueling climbs, fast flats and tricky descents.
