Event Start Location
Riders had tons of fun at Rocky Hill Ranch in 2012 and we're looking forward to another rowdy event in 2013! Check back here as race day approaches for the complete schedule of events.

Course Description
The race will start and finish at the Rocky Hill Ranch headquarters, and the course will consist of roughly 50% dirt road and 50% fast, single track with a great flow. This 4 loop, 15.5-mile course starts with a fast 7 miles of dirt roads heading to the north end of the ranch, then continues with some of the sweetest single track in Texas. Riders will make their way back to the start, see all their closest friends and family and then hit the loop again. We’ll have loads of aid station support to fuel your ride and the post-race party will knock your socks off.

Awards
Awards Ceremony will take place on Saturday at 3 p.m., approximately 30 minutes after final completion of the race.

Awards will be 3 deep in each division. Age groups are male/female in 10 year increments (20-29, 30-39, etc.).

Qualifying slots will be distributed at the Awards Ceremony. There will be 70-100 slots per qualifying event.
