RIDES + ROUTES

2018 Skull 120/60/30 Registration Open

If you haven't already heard, registration for the 2018 edition of the Skull 120/60/30 gravel epic is now open. Three concurrent races take place on Saturday, June 16th in #EasternOregon with start/end in Burns, Oregon. Earlybird pricing for the updated event is a scant $40 and easily represents the best bargain going in endurance gravel racing.

Already a truly humbling event in its first going last summer, the coming 2018 edition of the Skull has been updated with a new route that includes even more gravel/dirt (a whopping 80%), even more elevation gain (now over 11k), and even more rugged backcountry beauty.

We are honored to be working with a great crew from Harney County, US Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, and Oregon State Parks to grow this spectacular event and look forward to spending another weekend with friends and bikes in Oregon's beautiful high desert backcountry.
