Bryce Conquer the Mountain

46 Mile Mountain Bike Race/Ride
By Haymarket Bicycles


Bryce Resort - Sunday, October 17th, 2021

 

Race Description

 

Rev3Endurance and Haymarket Bicycles have teamed up to design 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 26 at the top of the mountain in under 4 hours to earn the Conquer the Mountain belt buckle metal.  If you don't clear the aid station at mile 26 you will be short coursed and still earn a smaller medal, but not the coveted 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, aid stations (6, 26, & 34 mile locations) and an ice cold beverage and food post ride at Carter's Hutte on the patio at Bryce Resort.   

We look forward to seeing you on Sunday, October 17, 2021, at check-in at the REV3Endurance Trailer near the Main Lodge at Bryce Resort.  Parking will be walking distance from the race HQ in the main parking lot at Bryce Resort.
