Race Description

 

Rev3Endurance and Haymarket Bicycles has designed a great course at Bryce resort to host the Conquer The Mountain, Mountain Bike Race.  This event will challenge intermediate and advanced riders as they Conquer the Mountains around Bryce Resort in this event.  These are technical trails and are not designed for beginner riders.  You will be challenged!!  You must clear the cutoff checkpoint at mile 28 at the top of the mountain in under 4 hour to get the belt  buckle.  If you don't clear the aid station at mile 28 you short coursed and still  get a medal but not the belt buckle. Riders will ride a single loop course which will consist of paved roads, gravel roads and over 32 miles of mountain bike trails.  All riders will finish the event on the Bryce downhill mountain bike course after their final hill climb of the Event. The 2021 edition will be a Conquer the Mountain 46 Mile Mountain Bike Race and will be hosted out of Bryce Resort.  Each rider will get a map, race shirt, two aid stations (6 & 28 mile locations) and a ice cold Oktoberfest beverage post ride at the Copper Kettle.
