We’re bringing cross-country mountain bike racing back to northern New Mexico with the first annual Taos Guac-Amole Challenge!

Bookmark this page for news and updates about the race, up until race day itself.

This challenging (in a fun way) course consists of two loops through the Amole Canyon trail system.

• Lower Loop: a fast rolling flowy single-track loop with gentle climbs through a ponderosa forests and mountain meadows.
• Upper Loop: a challenging (in a fun way) climb to a ripping descent that offers everything from technical rock gardens to flowy single-track bliss sliding through mountain meadows.

We’ll update this page regularly with relevant details.

Let’s ride!
