2024 Galactic Gravel Grinder

This route is almost all dirt, with a touch of pavement, and includes 4 miles of the Alien Run single track. You'll encounter steep punchy climbs up to 12%, and breathtaking views, all on some of the most remote gas field roads we have to offer. Online registration is open now, don't delay secure your spot today! 

Mileage offered includes distances of 12 miles, 37 miles and 53 miles. These roads may be rougher than other gravel event roads and there is 3.8 miles of singletrack on the alien trail. Make sure your gravel bike is up for the burly roads NM has to offer! If you don't have a gravel bike a mountain bike is perfectly acceptable.

MANDATORY navigation device with the route you are riding for the 37 and 53 mile rides. There are a bunch of tricky turns out there and we don't want anyone getting lost. The course will be marked the best we can but if we use the combination, we should avoid lost riders. The 37 course aid station will be at miles 23 and 31. The 53 mile course aid stations will be placed at miles 23 and 46.

Podiums will be called once top 3 finishers arrive. Categories include U16 Grom Female (12 miles), U16 Grom Male (12 miles), Open Intermediate Female (37 miles), Open Intermediate Male (37 miles), Open Pro Female (53 miles), Open Pro Male (53 miles)
