*Elevation data may be highly variable by device or mapping platform, as different software may use various data sources and calculation methods. Our total elevation gain for the stage is a middle estimate based on readings from multiple devices.

Riders will head up the road to the ski area, providing ample opportunity to spread out and warm-up before hitting the dirt, as well as getting the biggest climb of the day out of the way early! A little bit more climbing on the ski area and the course enters Kimberley’s extensive singletrack trail network with a challenging bit of rocky climbing through Moe’s Canyon, before hitting the dirt with the handcrafted Magic Line singletrack.

After a series of fun descents and climbs, riders will find themselves at the top of the timed descent. With over 300 m of descending over 5km, this descent promises to be one of the longest and funnest timed descents of the week. Starting off with the signature “Thunder Turkey” and leading into “Shapeshifter” and “Hoodoo View”, riders will hit the lowest point on the course, requiring a hard effort on the 2nd biggest climb of the day to repay the gravity gods for the fun of the 300m descent. From there another moderate descent and climb will take the riders onto the town pathway system, and back into the town for a Platzl finish.

A beautiful day on the trails in Kimberley. I wish I had more time on this trail. Looks like it could get more and more fun as you get comfortable...
