September 2020 – Virtual in 2020!

Despite Self-Quarantining and Social Distancing, we have created a way to still encourage you to get out on the trails for some sanity-saving pandemic recovery, all while supporting Mountain Trails this summer with Virtual participation!

Presented by Skullcandy, Tour des Suds is a 7-mile mountain bike climb starting at City Park. Go hard and treat it like a legit mtb race (yes, there are awards) or a crazy costume party on bikes. Either way, it’s 2,700′ of vert straight up to the finish line/Skullcandy Party Station at the top of Guardsman Pass.  

Only participants who register before September 1st are guaranteed a pair of official 2020 Tour des Suds socks!

HOW VIRTUAL WORKS:

  • Simply register
  • Once we have confirmed your registration, we will send you; your number plate and socks if you have registered before September 1st.
