GPS data files for TransRockies 2012:
All of our routing has been recorded by GPS and thoroughly checked before the race, but mother nature sometimes has little surprises that mean last minute course changes. Don’t be surprised if there are small changes to the routing or stats before race day. Please note that all information is subject to change. Elevation gain/loss data collected by GPS can be highly inaccurate and varied depending on how it is measured and the equipment used. Our elevation data should approximate the measurements obtained by a portable GPS unit. TransRockies Events does not endorse riding all routes outside of the event. Some trails may not normally be open for riding or may be unrideable at certain times of year. Please obey all signs and respect current trail conditions.
