Course

A 10+- mile loop, 80% single track and 20% jeep road with several creek crossings. The single track winds through oak and pine groves combining quick down hills and technical sections. The course is marked with arrows for day riding, reflective tape for night riding.

From the start, RHR will let you know just how good of a climber you are (or aren’t). We start at the saloon with a short La Mans running start, then head up from the Trailhead past the windmill. Turn on Pam's Picnic Trail which should give you more time to pass at the start of the race. Follow Grey's Way, Ike's Peek, Mini-Me, cross the carpet bridge, & up Super Secret Switch Back to the top. Next comes a fast winding trail called ‘Karaway’ that leads to ‘Off the Lip’, a parade of whoop-dee-doo’s that wind in and out of a dry creek bed. 'Off the Lip’ will put a huge smile on your face. This year we skip Frontal Lobotomy, and take Bottle in Front of Me. You hit the service road for a very short stretch until you reach the utility easement where you will pass a picnic table then make a left onto Longhorn Loop. This is the far end of the loop and you will take 10-mile bail out and begin heading back in to the woods at the start of 'Miracle Mile', which will eventually push you up a short climb. Skip 'Leapin' Lizards' and continue on to the right and follow the markings to ‘Black Trac’, described as the grand finale of RHR. Imagine the best of RHR all at once. Right before you think it’s all over you come to 'The Grind' followed by ‘The Wall’ – think whoop-dee-doos on crack.  A short run on 'Fofenique' then finishing on 'Grey's Hiway' to the start/finish loop around the pond in front of the saloon.

 


Extra Bits

Right to Cancel or Reschedule – Terra Firma Racing LLC reserves the right in the event of inclement weather, emergency, or natural disaster to cancel the race or move to a later time that day or alternate date within the year (if available). In the event of a CANCELLATION with no ability to reschedule, there will be NO REFUND OF ENTRY FEES.  Each athlete must accept any such risk for their entry paid. That said, we have never had to cancel the DIRTY DOZEN MOUNTAIN BIKE RACE yet. We even had snow one year. We did have to shorten the course to 8 hours instead of 12 though.
