An urban cross-country race with a serious dose of single track, the Morehart Murphy MTB Race has it all.

Rip through the closed-off downtown. Tear up the hill and around Fort Lewis College on the best single track in town. And cap it all off by riding through the window at Steamworks Brewing Company.

This is a mountain bike race like only Durango can provide.
