Notes on pre-riding:

Sun Valley Resort does not open until our race, so there will be no lifts running for lift assisted pre-riding. Personal vehicles are not allowed on mountain for shuttling. Additionally, Stage 1 is a hiking trail and will not be open for riding before race day. Stage 3 will be closed until race day due to elk calving. Please respect these forest service rules. Riders are encouraged to pre-ride Stages 2, 4 and 5.

– Each day after the race concludes there will be a free lunch for all athletes. You must have your food and beer voucher to redeem your food/beer. On Sunday, there will be a raffle followed by awards at the race base area.
– Spectators are welcome and encouraged to join the event festivities.
– Spectators and athletes may view live timing results throughout the race on ItsYourRace.com and the ItsYourRace App.
