Im going up to Colorado for the pony X and wanted a better routing file so
i made this. Use at your own risk as i am human and can make errors.

That said i do all the mapping and courses for West Texas Gravel Events.

This Area has a lot of industrial roads and is easy to get lost on.

Any one done any recon of the area on gravel conditions? Ruts?
they have had a lot of late snows im sure it will be rugged.

Thanks, I'll check it out.  What's the difference between this & the official listed route?

Trinidad is supposed to get heavy rain Thursday & light rain Friday.  So I'm expecting mud.  No real thoughts as it's my first time riding this.

The track is EXACTLY the same. it just have my custom cues that are not included at road junctions
that look confusing from satellite image. 

also marked are feed locations, and one mile cue to MTN summits.
to see all this you have to use the TCX files on later garmins or other GPS units.

Friday afternoon here...  does anyone have any info on this event tomorrow?  Is it on regardless of weather?  The white doesn't even give exact directions / location for the start / registration / parking....  Anyone?

Sorry I couldn't reply - as I did not bring my computer with me to the ride.  We just figured out where the start line was from the TCX file.

Since the route was modified - I didn't end up using the route.  Thanks for posting it, though.

How was everyone's rides?  On lap 1 I was riding at our group's slowest rider's pace.  On lap 2, I flatted 2 miles outside of the start!  Then it was just easy riding the rest of the lap.  I think we finished the 2nd lap 35 min faster than the first.
