Presented by Skullcandy, Tour des Suds is a 7-mile mountain bike climb starting at City Park. Go hard and treat it like a legit mtb race (yes, there are awards) or a crazy costume party on bikes. Either way, it’s 2,700′ of vert straight up to the finish line/Skullcandy Party Station at the top of Guardsman Pass. Festivities continue back at City Park with lunch provided by Komrades and the “Suds” provided by Red Rock Brewery, along killer opportunity drawing, costume contest and awards. The Tour des Suds is the zaniest mountain bike party in the west!

Kids 17 years and under get FREE entry, but must register so we can issue bibs and include them in timing results.
