Like many of you, we've been awed and inspired by some of the great experiential races out there. Events like the Firecracker 50, the Gunnison Growler and the Laramie Enduro provide both a stout challenge and feature the singletrack and scenery we all crave as mountain bikers.
Honey Stinger was born and bred in Steamboat Springs, home to some of the highest quality riding in the Rockies. For years we've been talking about a backcountry race that showcases our world-class riding and our terrific community.
And so after a lot of late-night planning sessions (and some last-minute scrambling), we're pleased to announce The Steamboat Stinger ™ - a 50-mile singletrack-a-palooza with amazing riding and a race vibe that's distinctly Steamboat.
You can expect singletrack…lots of it. Beginning at the Howelson Hill Ski Area right in the heart of Steamboat, the course takes an extended detour deep into the beautiful backcountry of Routt County before returning to the transition/finish area. Racers will wind through open meadows, narrow aspen-lined Colorado loam just begging for you to lean it hard, and wild sage gardens offering incredible views of the surrounding peaks and valleys. It's a 50-mile race composed of two 25-mile loops that are 90% singletrack.
