SBT GRVL // Sunday AUGUST 20th
Ask anyone who has participated in this event and they will surely back up the claim that it’s ‘World Class’, after which they’ll explain how dang hard it is! It hits every great dirt road you might want to see in Steamboat, in a day, with top tier support. While it may be sold out, you should absolutely consider volunteering.
