“75 miles and 4,000ft of gravel through rugged Oregon Trail country. Equal cash payout, raffle, and party! Register now! - $55

The route is run primarily on excellent, fast gravel roads. It’s a hilly course, with over 4,000 feet of climbing in 75 miles. The course is 88% gravel and 12% asphalt, with the final 5 miles climbing up over Mitchell Pass and through the Scotts Bluff National Monument.

Look for fossils and cows; this is open range country.  You won’t be the first to test your mettle through these parts.  You’ll be riding on the Oregon Trail for much of the route, retracing the very steps of the Western immigrants.  The race is named after Antione Robidoux, who built a trading post during the 1840s, selling tack and grog to immigrants as they crossed over Robidoux Pass on the way to their demise or Oregon, whichever came first.  In later years, immigrants struggled over the more direct Mitchell Pass.  You’ll be riding over both.

Cash prizes will be awarded for top 3 women finishers and top 3 men finishers.

First place $300
Second place $200
Third place $100

After the race, we'll all come together for awards, raffle prizes from our sponsors, drinks with our friends from Flyover Brewing Co., food from local vendors, and enjoy live music by Boulder's Grant Farm into the evening!
