Kokopelli Trail (Rabbit Valley)
Fruita, Colorado
Click to go to the web site for the Desert RATS Classic mtb Race in Fruita, Colorado

On the western slope of Colorado, the famous Kokopelli Trail winds its way through sagebrush, ledgy slickrock, winding double track, sandy washes, fast jeep trails and crosses the state line toward Moab, Utah. This trail is the site of the Desert RATS Classic. The 100 kilometer endurance mountain bike race is a challenging 61 miles test of stamina and includes the beatiful 13 mile Zion Curtain Loop Trail. Or you can ride the 50K mountain bike race which is a fun out and back on the rugged Kokopelli Trail. Held in May, it’s a great early season test of fitness and a great reason to keep training through the winter and early spring. The course is equally well suited for geared bikes and single speeds and covers a wide variety of terrain including challenging technical terrain, grueling climbs, fast flats and tricky descents.

This event is challenging and should not be taken lightly. While it is not designed for the casual rider, you can finish with focused and adequate training. The race will have five well – stocked aid stations along the course. Every racer that finishes in less than 6 hours receives a “Gonzo” finisher’s award, we’ll have a sub 10 hour “Enduro” award, and three deep awards in men’s and women’s categories. The 50K racers will have three aid stations and will receive a finisher’s memento and age group awards. 50K Fat Tire racers will have 10 hours to complete the course.
