It’s ALIVE! Rexy 2024 is going off! Saturday November 2nd!

June 9, 2024 |by | 0 Comments | Uncategorized

Time to think ahead, my friend and bust a move for our best pricing all year for a gravel event like no other!

Co2uT was a BLAST; you’ve ridden, trained, and, or raced your way to blissful fitness this summer – Now what? How do you cap off a fantastic year? Test yourself or reward yourself for efforts well earned?

We have just the place for you. The Fruita Desert is calling you this fall and, “You belong here!”

We’ve entirely remade REXY Queen of the Desert and are returning to our roots with a genuinely authentic gravel experience, bringing you the very best of what we do!

What is new?

  • We’re moving to the heart of the desert with HQ and BaseCamp at the Fruita 18rd trailhead and camping area.
  • More options – 50 miles, 72 miles, and 100 miles, all beginning and ending in the same place.
  • Ride, start, and finish right outside your campsite!
  • Even better terrain – By starting well into the desert, regardless of your distance, you get to ride further into the desert and experience the best of our terrain.
  • The BIG Monster. Our Epic T-Rexy remains a point-to-point ride from the desert of Moab to the desert of Fruita, but she’ll feature even more variety in the new finish location. And yes, your shuttle to the start is included.

Course Highlights

50, 72 and 100 begin and end at Fruita 18rd Base Camp

50 Miler. A sweet jaunt through the desert. A big lollipop loop with 3,200’ of climbing, incredible views, and two challenging climbs.

72 Miler. A visit all the way out to Utah, with two border crossings and a ton of photo ops and views. An immense diverse lollipop with 4,200’ of climbing.

100 Miler. A supersized lollipop, riding deep into Utah and experiencing terrain, few riders get to visit with views, vistas, colors and climbs that will genuinely take your breath away! 5,800’ of vert.

Rexy 190 Miler. The ultimate desert odyssey! While we’ve shortened her up by 10 miles, she’s still a MONSTER. With even more views and climbs, this mind-blowing ride will require the best in you! 10,500’ vert!

Event Highlights

Here is a YouTube link for more information

Rexy will occur 12 miles north of Fruita at the 18rd trail head area. Vast camping options from reservation-assigned sites to primitive camps where you want. Or a short 20-minute drive from AirBnb/hotel luxury in Fruita.

All portions of the event will take place here. From Packet Pick Up Friday night to pancake breakfast, awards on Sunday morning, and everything in between. This one is all about being together for riding, racing, camping, bonfires, beer, music, and food together, camping in the desert during the best time of the year!
