Introduction:
Welcome to the second annual Grand Enduro, the 3 stage enduro event taking place on 1) The Ribbon, 2) Gunny, and 3) Free Lunch / Tabaguache / Pucker Up / Moto!  Consider yourself forewarned now... you will experience great times and great trails right in Grand Junction, CO!

We'll be starting the weekend at The Camp with plenty of pre and post event activities to keep you, your friends, and family happy.  There will be no day of the event registration - Registration cut off is set at Friday, 06/01/2018 @ 9:00pm (NO RACE DAY REGISTRATION!!).

Shuttles will be provided for everyone both days except for Pro/Open category, which will be a mandated ride from The Camp to the start on race day.  More time for warm up and to explore!

Camping / Lodging:


Camp at the Race Venue:

   
The Camp is a great place to be for the weekend because you'll be only a hop and skip from everything you need: race staff, groceries, Dos Hombres mexican restaurant, gas & convenience store, and Trailhead Coffee Bar!

One spot includes: option #1) 6 people, 2 tents, and 2 vehicles; or option #2) 1 RV. Each spot will go for $30 per night. These spots will be available for purchase with your race registration.
