In 2009 Wyoming built a trail system designed with one thing in mind: a world class mountain biking destination for pro's and weekend beginners. In 2012 we're proud to host the first ever XTERRA at Curt Gowdy State Park, a destination soon to be known as the next "Moab". IMBA designated Curt Gowdy with it's EPIC award, granted to only 50 trail systems world wide, and the only XTERRA to take place on an IMBA Epic Trail System.
The XTERRA Curt Gowdy Triathlon features a 1200m swim in the clear waters of Granite Reservoir. Then it's on to a 1-Lap 14.1 mile single-track bike over every type of terrain imaginable. You'll climb through aspen groves, zip through open meadows, navigate narrow evergreen trees, and even traverse over slick rock! The 5.4m run will cover many of the same single track trails before you finish at the Aspen Grove Trailhead. The park has RV and tent sites within 200m of the transition area!
"Wyoming built a playground for mountain bikers, and built it around two pristine reservoirs. Between the trail system and camping you couldn't dream up a more perfect XTERRA Venue." - Mike Rutter, seasoned XTERRA athlete and trail builder for Boulder County
