Come kick off the season with us at TommyKnocker10, just outside of Silver City, NM! This is a 10-hour endurance competition at Ft. Bayard. The trails are fast and flowy with a great mixture of single and doubletrack. You can curve through the enormous juniper trees, get a little bit wet riding through the stream crossings, and see beautiful views of the valley. This course is an intermediate 12 mi. loop with an 840 ft. elevation gain. Bring the whole family for a weekend of killer riding, hang out at the staging area with pizza and s’mores, and go sightseeing in Silver City. We hope to see you there!
