Typical Weather: Always sunny and 20c. Joking aside, In august the “average” is 10-15C in day with the odd showers. However its not uncommon for a blizzard to happen in Mid July or August with a monsoon 2 day rain storm prior. If it rains or snows for the event, Good luck I guess?
A: The race itself isolated in mountains, we will have spectating areas close that will incorporate as much as possible. The Extreme Hard Enduro Section is quite a ways from camp, due to logistics we cant get the average foot traffic there, YET, However we plan to have extensive Camera Coverage on the fun sections that we can bring back to camp.
West 45min of the race is a large government horse ranch and area with amazing scenery and walks with waterfalls. If coming from eastern Canada. Stop by the Torrington Gopher Museum. Its the best $2 you can spend for a cheap laugh, dont put the gopher head on.
