2019 SAGEBRUSH SAFARI

GENERAL RACE INFO

Keep scrolling for Cross Country and Super D race specific information

SAGEBRUSH SAFARI is back for the second year under Quick n’ Dirty.  The course for this year is relatively the same with a couple modifications. It comes to you at just over 26 miles and 3600ft of climbing! This folks is true cross country course. For the Beginners that aren’t used to that much time in the saddle we are also offering an 18 mile course. As an added bonus we will also be having a Super D race on Sunday! You can race one day or both, it’s up to you!

The Sagebrush Safari course is on multi-use trails and public roads. This means that you may encounter off-road vehicles and dirtbikes, as well as vehicles on the paved roads. We will do our best to limit the traffic on the trails and roads, but we cannot forcibly stop people from using them. Please ride with caution and be courteous if you encounter any on or off-road traffic.

SAGEBRUSH SAFARI CROSS COUNTRY (XC) RACE

CROSS COUNTRY (XC) COURSE INFO, CLASSES, SCHEDULE and KIDS RACE:

TRAIL MAP     STRAVA    GPX FILE

26 MILE COURSE (RIDERS ON THIS COURSE WILL FOLLOW THE BLUE COURSE ARROWS)

  • As depicted on the Trail Map above you will start out at the venue, just across the street from the Navy’s Camp Morena at around 3000ft. Once the gun goes off you will be sent on a 6.5 mile climb up Morena Stokes Valley Rd to 4 Corners, then up Los Pinos Rd, just near the top of Los Pinos mountain (4600ft). After you catch your breath and take in the glorious views, get your legs ready for one of the best descents Corral Canyon has to offer, Spur Meadows Trail. After roughly 4 miles of descending you will end up back on Morena Stokes Valley Rd and arriving once again at 4 Corners. From here you will jump on Wrangler Trail. This is the trail that makes the Sagebrush Safari as epic as it is. You will experience many types of terrain to include loose dirt, hard pack, massive rock slabs, rock gardens, punchy climbs, and flowy descents. After about 4 miles on Wrangler Trail you will reach Skye Valley Rd. After a few minutes you will hit Bronco Flats Trail, then another few minutes later you will hit a new section called Ranger Trail. For those of you who have raced the Safari in the past know that this where you would normally hit the dreaded hike-a-bike. Not this year! Thanks to Ranger Trail you can now stay on your bike and enjoy a technical, yet rideable climb, up to the next section. The next section is one of the most fun fire-roads you’ll experience, Gunslinger Trail. After your done having fun on Gunslinger you’ll reach Morena Stokes Valley Rd and for the final time make your way back up to 4 corners. Once you reach 4 corners you can start thinking about cracking open that tasty beer (or favorite non-alcoholic beverage) and jump right on to Kernan Cycle trail. Kernan is the final descent back down to the paved road. Once on the paved road you’re roughly 2 fast miles to the finish line.
