Registration opens Monday, March 7 for Todd & Ned’s Durango Dirt Fondo! This year’s mountain bike adventure, scheduled for Saturday, September 17, will be paired with an all-new event the following day – Sunday, September 18 – the first La Strada La Plata gravel ride. Those who complete both events will receive a King/Queen of the Dirt exclusive commemorative gift. Now you can get crushed by Todd and Ned twice in one weekend!
Todd and Ned’s Durango Dirt Fondo will offer 30-mile ($75) and 50-mile ($95) MTB course options, each with on-course nutritional, mechanical and medical support and prizes awarded for timed segments. For 2016, the 50-mile Fondo may include a section of high-country singletrack in addition to traveling through the lower elevation trail systems and transitions of hard pack bike paths and roads.
La Strada La Plata gravel ride will offer 70-mile ($95) and 35-mile ($75) routes that include quality dirt roads with several timed sections. Nutritional, mechanical and medical support will also be provided for the gravel event as well as prizes for timed segments. Each course will start and finish in downtown Durango where all finishers will enjoy a post race feed party (mtb) and pre race coffee and pastries (gravel).
Only 500 slots are available for the two events, so don’t miss your chance! Registration opens at 8 a.m. on Monday, March 7.
