The Punisher Ride just might be Utah’s most punishing race (see what we did there?) with more than 11,000 feet of climbing spread over 116 miles.
Starting with a neutral roll out from Eden (the closest you’ll get to paradise once the peddling begins) we head up Utah Highway 39 to the Monte Cristo pass before a long descent to Woodruff. A quick fuel stop and you turn around to reverse the course. Instead of finishing in Eden, however, we send you up one of Utah’s hardest climbs – Powder Mountain.
Supported aid stations will be provided along the course with one final water stop as you begin the final climb. Expect to find water, First Endurance EFS, Honey Stinger gels and waffles and other goodies to keep you hydrated and fueled along the way.
For those not into quite that much suffering, we’ve got a 74 mile course with only 8,000 feet of climbing.
The Punisher Ride will be USAC Sanctioned, a UCA points series event and have a timed Gran Fondo version for those who want to ride but don’t want to ‘race’ against anyone but your buddies.
Free lunch with the beverage of your choice compliments of the Punisher crew awaits at the top.
Please DO NOT ride your bikes from Powder Mountain to the bottom. That descent IS NOT part of the course and you will not be covered by our event insurance. Shuttles will be provided.
