Giddy up and get ready to ride Moab! Long known as one of the world’s most iconic mountain biking destinations, Moab has played host to riders from far and wide. In recent years, the Moab mountain biking community has worked tirelessly building epic trails and growing its reputation as a mountain bike Mecca.
Moab Rocks takes some of the regions best classic and new routes including Klondike, Porcupine Rim and Mag 7 and combines them into a 3-day xc masterpiece in a fully supported format. All this wrapped up in a fun and friendly atmosphere, combining camaraderie and competition. TransRockies Events pioneered Mountain Bike Stage Racing in North America with the TransRockies Challenge in 2002, and the 3-day race format with the TR3 starting in 2009. Poison Spider Bicycles brings its expertise in Moab’s mountain bike trails and community to Moab Rocks.
Moab Rocks will present not only the best in Moab riding, but also the best in Moab culture, with beer from Moab Brewery, nightly slideshows and awards. Moab Rocks will work in partnership with Moab Trail Mix, and under permit from the Bureau of Land Management and the Manti-La Sal National Forest.
