NW: Come and join us for the Owyhee Fandango in Oreana, Idaho!
Come and join us for the Owyhee Fandango in Oreana, Idaho!
May 24, 25, 26 - it's a 3-Day Pioneer ride, and a 80 and 100 mile elevator on Sunday, May 26.
The trails will be easy/moderate this year - we'll stay in the lower elevations with good footing.
If you're wanting to qualify for the National Championship this would be a good 100 miler to do it on. It's not too difficult and there's plenty of daylight this time of year.
You'll even have a full moon! It's a pretty time of year in the Owyhees - the creeks are running full and there's still snow on the mountains.
We're not taking you to Celebration Park across the river this year - you'll turn around at the petroglyphs. The first 2 vet checks will be at the Sierra del Rio Ranch, then back to base camp at Teeter Ranch at 60 miles. Two 20 mile loops out of base camp will complete the 100 mile course.
We're offering a 60 -> 80 mile elevator, and an 80 -> 100 mile elevator this year. If you choose to elevate to the longer distance, you will get mileage and completion points only.
Meals will be home-cooked by Wynne and Melissa. (their enchiladas are legendary...)
