Transrockies Run Stage 5
Pepsico Transrockies Run Stage 5 – Red Cliff to Vail – 23.8 miles/4,100 feet of elevation gain
From Red Cliff you start with almost 8 miles on dirt road climbing moderately to Checkpoint 1. From there you enter singletrack through the forest with several steep climbs and descents until you come to the open meadows on the back of Vail Ski Resort. Once on the ski resort, you traverse the long ridge mostly on road and double track, but with one technical descent where the trail drops through a cliff band. After leaving checkpoint 2 you continue on the ridgeline for a few miles before dropping on to the front of the ski hill, descending towards Vail on a mix of access
roads and single-track. Finally, descend to the finish at the bottom of the “Vista Bahn” chairlift in Vail Village.
Thomas: Rather than explain the day I’m going to give you the five stages of Pepsico Transrockies Run Stage 5.
