Rexy 2023 Upate

Greetings Rexy riders,

Just about 30 days out from you meeting your monster in the Utah/Colorado desert! We hope this finds you training hard and ready to take on this incredible journey!

Several key updates for you.

1 – Shuttles: We provide a shuttle for those in need from the finish line in Fruita to the start of the 200 near Moab and the start of the 100 in Cisco on race morning. (We do not shuttle to the 50 and strongly encourage you to connect together to carpool and shuttle each other to the start of the 50  – Info to follow).

You MUST reserve your shuttle spot in advance, prior to 9.27.2023. Use this link to register. https://www.bikereg.com/rexy

200-mile riders, Emergency Services have mandated this year that we add cut-off times to the 200 for the final 3 aid stations. We’ve pushed to make them as lenient as possible (and reserve the right to amend as needed with weather and conditions on the day). If this is a problem for any of you we understand and will offer a refund or deferment to Co2uT 2024 if you notify us prior to 9.15.2023 info@desertgravel.com
