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.

After a night of well deserved rest you’ll be ready to switch gears on the Moonrakers and CBT trail systems. Fast and flowy best describe this day. You’ll be grinning ear-to-ear while gliding through lush forests and flying down trails like CBT Mainline, Canyon Creek and Gold Rush.

While parts of this stage resemble the route we used last time we were through Golden in 2014, much of the stage has been overhauled including new trails like Hemiptera, Odinata, and a higher entry to the stunning Canyon Creek Trail.

There are over 150km of trail in this system and we’ve hand picked the best to ensure this is a day you’ll never forget. All routes are subject to change at any time to allow for quality control, safety of the riders and wildlife.
