Little Park Road Hillclimb

Grand Junction, CO


After close collaboration with Mesa County and BLM, we are finally moving forward.  We are making last year's climb 1 mile longer, finishing at the Ribbon Trailhead - promising better sight distance for both the rider and spectators.  This both improves the experience and safety of the finish area!

If you did the Gunny Enduro and challenge the Little Park Road Hillclimb, you will be crowned based on the best time combined as MAD King or Queen of The Hill for the year!
