Kicking off the 5th annual Singletrack 6, we’re visiting one of the most popular areas from the 2014 and 2016 editions of Singletrack 6 Six: 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 routes we used last time we were through Golden in 2016, much of the stage has been overhauled and optimized to avoid overlap with Stage 3, when we’ll visit the area again. 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.
Please note that due to a sensitive goat habitat spectators are not permitted on the Canyon Creek portion of this stage.
