This looks like fun
The Colorado Trail Race. 470 miles with 65,000 feet of climbing. Denver to Durango. 300 miles of singletrack. Ah yeah.
The Colorado Trail Race would be a great event to try prior to taking on the monsterous Tour Divide (which I'd like to try someday). I'd love to give the Colorado Trail Race a shot this year, but being a flat lander from Nebraska and originally a native Ohioan, I'd be completely out of my element. And that could be very dangerous. Sure, I've ridden in Colorado several times, but not for days at a time without access to outside support. This may be a bit over my head. I wouldn't know where to start as far as gear and would have no idea what I'd be getting myself into. Time to do some searching on the net.
The Colorado Trail Race starts the day after the Laramie Enduro. Ouch. That'd be a rough, but fun week. Maybe...
