About this stage

The course alternates every year, always up Boulder Canyon but either a left on Magnolia or a right on Sugarloaf and ends near Eldora SKi Resort or Nederland, respectively. This year its on Magnolia...

* 3800 Vertical feet in 18 miles
* 13% Grades on lower Magnolia Rd
* 7 miles of dirt road, finishing off with the last grunt up the Shelf Rd
Reviews

Classic Hill climb, super hard, great course. Even if you don't like climbing it is nice rolling up Boulder Canyon in the field, once you hit Magnolia your on your own.
