SBT GRVL is a mixed surface race of up to 142 miles and 9,400 feet of climbing with more than 100 miles of gravel through a combination of mixed terrain roads surrounding the beautiful resort town of Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Picked as one of our best gravel cycling events in Colorado, the event is extremely popular and known to sell out quickly, so plan accordingly. There are four course options with fully stocked aid stations along the way; Black, Blue, Red, and Green. Black Course is the most challenging ride that covers the full 142 miles and over 9000 feet of elevation gain with 6 aid stations that include a variety of snacks and hydration options. The Blue Course is 105 miles, 6500 feet of elevation gain, with more than 70 miles of gravel with 4 aid stations to provide assistance. The Red Course is 64 miles with 4,100 feet of climbing on more than 50 miles of gravel with 3 aid stations. The final option for the day is the Green Course that is 37 miles with 2,000 feet of climbing 20 miles of gravel with 2 aid stations.
The variety of awards presented at the post-race celebration depend on course registration, gender, and age group. There are cash prizes, prize packages, and awards given for the best time on the three timed climbs: SRAM (Steamboat Lake), Wahoo Fitness (Trout Creek), and Point6 (Corkscrew).
