Wild Rockies Racing is proud to bring back Idahos original XTERRA event! Held at the stunning Ponderosa State Park near McCall.The 6th Annual XTERRA Wild Ride features a 3/4 mile swim, a 20-mile mountain bike and a 6 mile trail run, with spectacular sections of single-track that will be beckoning you to come back and ride/run even more.
Swim: The swim leg is 3/4 of a mile and is a one-lap, loop that goes out into the crystal-clear, 300-foot deep, Payette Lake. Water temps will be in the upper 50's. Using a wet suit on this one is a tough call. Depending on your constitution, you could probably go without one.....or maybe not. It is warm near the shore, but not so warm farther out. If in doubt, bring the suit.
Bike: FLASH As stated above, we are going to run the 19.5 Crestline Trail Loop. VIEW THE TOPO MAP ONLINE! It consists of rolling paved and dirt roads and sweet, single track trails and has 1,800 feet of climbing and descending. It will be awesome for a intermediate and up level rider and challenging (but doable for a FIT beginning mountain biker. There will be numerous aid stations and people up there to assist you, so prepare to experience a Wild Ride. This course is the real deal and be prepared for more than an hour and half bike leg. Period.
Run: The run course will be one, 6.2-mile loop and will go deep into the heart of the park through some really tight, cool, green trails. Rocky stair cases and bridge crossings are abundant, so watch your step! Mostly rolling singletrack on this one. A+
