Triple Stage Rager Race

We are changing it up this year! This year’s race format will be a 3 stage race which will include the practice loop of Slick Rock Trail, we want to celebrate this unique trail’s 50th  Anniversary. This year’s race will be called the Triple Stage Rager.

The Triple Stage Rager format:

  • Stage 1– Transfer stage ascent on Hymasa Trail – not timed.
  • Stage 2– Timed descent on Amasa Back Trail from false summit.
  • Stage 3– Timed lap on the Slick Rock practice loop in a clockwise direction from the split intersection on the practice loop.

Stage 1 transfer on Hymasa Trail – allow yourself enough time to make your timed start for Amasa Back Trail.  Stage 2 will start at 9am from the false summit on Amasa Back Trail. Stage 3 will start at 12pm at Slick Rock Practice Loop.

Parking for Stage 1 and 2 is located on Kane Creek road at the trail head parking lot for Amasa Back trail. It’s the second parking lot on right hand side of Kane Creek after pavement ends. NO PARKING along the road. If the parking lot is full you will be directed to park at the first dirt parking area (this parking area is less than ½ mile from Amasa Back Trailhead parking).

Parking for stage 3 will be at Slick Rock Parking lot. If this lot fills up then overflow parking will be past the Slick Rock parking lot approximately ½ mile up the Sand Flats road on right hand side after pavement ends. Your race entry gives you access to Sand Flats Recreation area and the Slick Rock Trail (You will be given a wristband for access to Slick Rock for race day). Practice runs at Slick Rock will not be included, the fee to access Slick Rock is $2/bike or $5/vehicle or use your annual pass ($25 pass) if you have one already.

Rider start times for the race will be posted on the website and Facebook page by 8pm Friday evening, October 25th.
