Colorado Endurance Series

It looks like the four corners region is blowing up with some good old fashioned grassroots endurance racing.  Both the Arizona and New Mexico Endurance series have been around for a few years, and now Colorado is jumping on the bandwagon.  The Colorado Endurance Series will kick off with the Durango Gravel Grinder 115/160 on April 16.  The rest of the series looks to be comprised of various high end singletrack and dirt road centuries.  Needless to say when I stumbled across the list of events, my jaw hit the floor, and I started thinking of how I could attend as many of these events as possible.  I wonder if I can get ready for 160 miles of riding in two months?

A fan of riding bikes with one gear, malt liquor, riding without knowing how many miles I’ve covered, and strip clubs that let you bring your own keg. I typically have a stupid grin on my face, it is because deep down I know that no matter what, my mom thinks I’m cool. Denver, Colorado, USA

  1. Ok, if you see a dude on a silver singlespeed Niner on Ring the Peak, that’s by bro-in-law. He’s all over it. Also, he’s my partner for the old pueblo. We’re really looking forward to it. 40, when are you coming to Oracle?

  2. @Sherri – How did I not know of this little gem? Sounds like fun. Are you going to be racing OSRS on the 20th?

  3. @LB, the death march is 65 miles, riding to cemeteries around indiana on a cx/mtb bike and taking a picture in front. they said something like 35 miles of gravel roads, 20 miles of singletrack, 10 miles of pavement. you could do it on your cx bike. OB will probably say hell no. you need a teammate. nancy and i are tossing the idea around but its a 2.5 hour drive.

  4. @LB I’d like to as I understand it’s the flattest one, but it’s a distance for me (3.5+ hour). Most likely not unless I find someone to carpool with. I plan to do 27th though.
