A unique gravel adventure in Gypsum, Colorado.

Did someone say GRAVEL PARTY?!?

On June 26 2022, gravel riders, families, friends, and spectators will descend on Eagle County for a gravel experience like none other. The course consists of terrain that will challenge both skill and fitness with vistas and views that only the Colorado High Country can offer.

The 85 mile Ram's Horn Escape will be an adventury jaunt with 10,500 ft of climbing. Sprinkle in some single track, a hike a bike or two, descents that will have you begging for mercy, and some of the most fantastic scenery you’ve experienced and you've got the perfect recipe for a great day on the bike.

- riders will compete for more than $10,000 in cash split evenly between Women and Men!

The 50 mile Little Bighorn is only slightly less rugged with and impressive 6,500 ft of climbing, and some of that teeth chattering down hill. Plan on a going for a hike with your bike a time or two but there’s still plenty of that fantastic scenery we were talking about.

There is also a 20 mile Gravel Curious option for those that want to see what this whole Gravel Hype is all about. This is a non-competitive option and if you've got an ebike, this one is for you!

Saturday the 25th is the expo. A family friendly build up to the next day's events, complete with live music, food trucks, beer, kids strider bike race and much more.

Huge thanks to Alpine Bank and The Town of Gypsum for their generous support and helping us create this unique event. Thanks to their support, we are able to offer onsite camping, complete with showers and bathrooms.
