GS Challenge and Hillclimb

GS Challenge

  • Saturday, September 30th
  • Registration at 8:00am
  • First Rider Leaves at 9:00am

The most anticipated event of the weekend is the GS Challenge that is guaranteed to provide plenty of entertainment for competitors and spectators alike. The GS Challenge will begin in the morning with riders lining up. A rider will leave every 20 seconds. Riders will first encounter the dry riverbed, then lap through the grass field, head up the rutted Jeep trail, then to the mud field. Next, they will hill-climb to the single track trail, which will lead them through the river crossing to the grass hillclimb; ending the Enduro Lap. Riders will return to the start and begin their second and final lap.

Even though the event is titled the GS Challenge, it is open to all riders of all abilities, on any marque or displacement. GS Riders, bring your KLR, KTM, Honda, Husky, Suzuki, Yamaha and other knobby-footed friends.

Gravel Afternoon Hillclimb
