Cost: $45 - $65
Course Description: The Dakota Five-O, lollie-pop loop, begins in Spearfish City Park, and leaves town to the west up Tinton Road. Three miles of gravel road climbing takes you to the flowing, fun single track of Tinton Trail. Seven miles later you will find the first water station at Big Hill Trailhead. After fueling up you’ll ride another 12 miles to the second water station at Old Baldy Trailhead. Relax, stretch and continue on Old Baldy for some of the more technical riding through Crangle Connection, and on to the third water station at sheep flats, approximately 30 miles into the race. Are you tired yet? Ride another 8 miles to the last water station at Ball Park where fine, young felines will await you with drinks and treats! Beware of the bear of a climb ahead! And don’t forget to stop at Hobo camp for your official on course PBR stop…..don’t ask for water! Now you’re ready for the Citadel slide, so pucker up your sphincter and give a hoot for your last 10 miles of single track back down Tinton trail, to Spearfish City Park, where music, food, and a cold brew is waiting with your name on it!
