    7:00 a.m.:  RACE BEGINS for everyone!6:00 p.m.:  Awards party begin at the Tate Pumphouse; 1775 West First Street; Casper, WY 82601.120 MILE ROUTE
    The 120 mile course starts at 7 a.m. at Poison Spider School (about 8 miles west of Casper) and travels west on Poison Spider Road for 10 miles of pavement before finding gravel on County Road 201.  For the next 40 miles, riders are mostly going uphill as you travel to the first aid station (at mile 51) and the first Left turn of the race on County Road 212. Riders loop around the western edge of the mountain range for just a few miles before making another Left turn on County Road 321 and will begin to descend Southeast towards Pathfinder reservoir. Enjoy these 25 miles of great views and rolling hills. It is VERY rare to see any human life this far out in the middle of nowhere. In 2013, I did not see one single vehicle or human in the 105 miles of gravel. In 2014, we saw 2 vehicles the entire time. Riders will find themselves at hwy 220 around mile 85 where you will turn Left and you can enjoy 5 miles of smooth pavement on wide lanes with rumble strips. Aid station number two is at mile 90 and is our turnoff to Old Oregon Trail Road (County Road 319) to the Northeast. The next 30 miles are glorious! You’ll point yourself northeast and go uphill slightly for 6 miles followed by a crazy fast 8 miles of descending. Pedal your way the final 15 miles back to Poison Spider School road.  Turn Right at the pavement and the finish line is within sight!

    60 MILE ROUTE
    The 60 mile race also starts at Poison Spider School at 7 a.m.  Racers travel for 3 miles west on Poison Spider Road before turning Southwest on the Historic Old Oregon Trail Road (County Road 319).  For 30 miles, riders will pedal pedal pedal uphill along huge fields of sagebrush, dried up creeks, jackrabbits, antelope and two historic sites.  At Highway 220, riders will have an aid station to grab a bite to eat before turning around and heading back to the school. It’s mostly downhill at this point and generally the wind will help you on your return trip.”
