Event notes
6th annual Rattlesnake Rally! The 120 mile race starts at 6am at Poison Spider School (about 8 miles west of Casper) and travels 10 miles of pavement before finding gravel. For the next 40 miles, riders are mostly going uphill as you travel to the first turn of the race at mile 50. Riders loop around the western edge of the mountain range and will begin to descend southeast towards Pathfinder Reservoir. Enjoy these 25 miles of great views and rolling hills. Riders will find themselves at hwy220 around mile 85 and you can enjoy 5 miles of smooth pavement on wide lanes with rumblestrips. Aid station number three is at mile 90 and is our turnoff to Old Oregon Trail Road to the Northeast. The next 30 miles are glorious! You'll point yourself northeast and go uphill slightly for 6 miles followed by a crazy fast 8 miles of descending. Pedal your way the final 15 miles back to Poison Spider School and BAM, you made it!! Aid at miles ~35,65,90,105,112.

The 60 mile race starts at Poison Spider School at 9am. Racers travel for 2 miles on pavement before turning on the Historic Old Oregon Trail Road. For 30 miles, riders will pedal pedal pedal uphill along huge fields of sagebrush, dried up creeks, jackrabbits, antelope and two historic sites. At hwy220, riders will have an aid station to grab a bite to eat before turning around and heading back to the school. It's mostly downhill at this point and generally the wind is always at my back when I return home on this route. Aid at miles ~8,17,30,43,52.

NEW!! The 37 mile historic tour will be a great way for veteran racers or beginner riders to get out there and grind some gravel! The tour will have multiple aid stations for you to rest at and take in some fantastic views and history. If you choose to stop, you can see wagon ruts still visible today from the original Oregon Trail, Mormon Trail and California Trail settlers. This tour starts at Poison Spider School at 10am. Aid at miles ~8,17,29.
