UPDATE: 29 March 2024 @ 10:00am
We have been feverishly monitoring the weather, and with keeping rider and spectator safety in mind, we regret to inform you that we are postponing the 2024 Sagebrush Safari to a later date, yet to be determined. With the course already marked, entrance roads graded, and the venue ready to go, this was a very difficult decision to make, especially a day before the event. All current registrations will be honored and automatically carried over to the new date. With all of the current races and cycling events on the near-term schedule we will go back and take a careful look as to when the best date is to conduct the Sagebrush Safari. Thank you to everyone that supports us and is understanding of the current situation. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us, but please allow time for us to respond, as we are still at the venue packing up before the storm rolls in.

Sincerest apologies,

Quick n’ Dirty MTB Racing

SAGEBRUSH SAFARI is back for the 6th year under Quick n’ Dirty.  The 2024 Cross Country course will be roughly 27 Miles with tons of fun singletrack! This folks is true cross country course. For the true beginners, youth, and E-MTB’ers we are also offering a 20 mile course.

The Sagebrush Safari XC MTB/E-MTB courses are 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.

From there you will eventually return to Los Pinos Rd and continue your climb almost most to the top of Los Pinos mountain. Once you’re up there where the air is thinner and cleaner you will start a descent on rough pavement (PLEASE BE CAREFUL) until you reach Morena Stokes Rd and then descend a little more. After the series of descents, you will have a small climb up Skye Valley Rd until you reach Morena Stokes Rd, and then you get to descend on the paved road all the way back to where you started.
