DESCRIPTION

GENERAL RACE INFO

SAGEBRUSH SAFARI is back for the third year under Quick n’ Dirty. The 2020 Cross Country course will be just as good as last year with a little more mileage and more fun singletrack! This folks is true cross country course. For the Beginners that aren’t used to that much time in the saddle we are also offering an 21 mile course.

As an addition to the historic cross country race we have decided to give birth to a Sagebrush Safari Gravel Race! The Gravel race will take place on Sunday March 29th and the course comes in at 40 miles with approximately 5,000 feet of elevation. Scroll down to the Gravel section for a Ride with GPS course link.

The Sagebrush Safari XC & Gravel courses are on multi-use trails and public roads. This means that you may encounter off-road vehicles and dirtbikes, as well as vehicles on the paved roads. We will do our best to limit the traffic on the trails and roads, but we cannot forcibly stop people from using them. Please ride with caution and be courteous if you encounter any on or off-road traffic.

XC MTB RACE INFO

30 MILE COURSE:

  • The course will start out at the venue, just across the street from the Navy’s Camp Morena at around 3000ft. Once the gun goes off you will be sent on a 6.5 mile climb up Morena Stokes Valley Rd to 4 Corners, then up Los Pinos Rd, just near the top of Los Pinos mountain (4600ft). After you catch your breath and take in the glorious views, get your legs ready for one of the best descents Corral Canyon has to offer, Spur Meadows Trail. After roughly 4 miles of descending you will end up crossing Morena Stokes Valley Rd and on to a fun but challenging single track climb. From here you will jump on Wrangler Trail. This is the trail that makes the Sagebrush Safari as epic as it is. You will experience many types of terrain to include loose dirt, hard pack, massive rock slabs, rock gardens, punchy climbs, and flowy descents. After about 4 miles on Wrangler Trail you will reach Skye Valley Rd. and a few minutes later you will hit a section called Ranger Trail that we have extended to give you a tough yet rideable climb, up to the next section. The next section is one of the most fun fire-roads you’ll experience, Gunslinger Trail. After your done having fun on Gunslinger you’ll reach Morena Stokes Valley Rd and for the final time make your way back up to 4 corners. Once you reach 4 corners you can start thinking about cracking open that tasty beer (or favorite non-alcoholic beverage) and jump right on to Kernan Cycle trail. Kernan is the final descent back down to the paved road. Once on the paved road you’re roughly 2 fast miles to the finish line.
