DIRECTIONS — GETTING TO THE RACE

El Doce at Pow Mow is held at Powder Mountain Ski Resort, just east of Eden, Utah via Hwy 158. Basecamp is in a new location this year in the parking lot of the Timberline Lodge. Parking is limited, please carpool if you can.


Please be aware that the average grade over 5 miles on this roadway is 14% so large trailers and RV's are discouraged.

Follow signs for event parking. Your race fans and supporters will follow the same signs for parking. Please plan for extra time to get parked and set up—you WILL NOT be able to drive directly up to your Day Camp spot this year. All items will need to be carried in from the nearby parking area.


***UPDATE*** Traffic Delay in Ogden Canyon, please plan accordingly.
There is currently a one-way traffic light at the bridge near the Alaskan Inn. Plan for extra time to get to Powder Mountain if passing through Ogden Canyon.

SUPPORT ON COURSE

Water: Please plan to provide your own hydration while on course. There will be a place to refill water bottles near mile 4.5 and mile 13 as well as in the exchange zone.

Nutrition: Please plan to provide your own nutrition while on course. We will provide 1 meal voucher for a plate of tacos and a beverage of your choice during or after the race (11 am - 7 pm).

Medical: Intermountain McKay-Dee Sports Medicine and Powder Mountain Ski Patrol will be on site for any medical issues.

PIT ZONES

There will be 2 specific pit zones. One is designated for solo riders only. The other is for duos and teams in the base camp area.

Solo riders may designate up to 2 people that will be given wristbands ( at packet pick up) to be your pit crew and will be allowed access into your designated area. There will not be vehicle access to the pit zone on race day. Please plan to haul your gear from the parking area.
This area crosses the course and is closed to the public.

Roosters Chill Zone

Be ready to enjoy the best seat in the house! Sip on a frosty beverage while watching riders pass through the exchange zone and enjoy panoramic picturesque views. Join us and our friends from Roosters Brewing between the hours of 11am - 7pm.

BASE CAMP

With an all-day event, you need a place to call your own. A base camp if you will. All riders and their crew are welcome to set up a camp to hang at throughout the day in the Timberline Lodge parking lot.

Please do not set up in a non-designated area. Signage and volunteers will be onsite to assist you.

No parking will be available in the day camp area. All tents, coolers, and equipment will need to be carried by your crew from the nearby parking area. Base Camp opens at 5am. Come early to get the best spot. Only one 10x10 spot per team so everyone has space.

Feel free to bring a shade tent, lounge chairs, hammock, margarita machine, whatever makes you feel at home. Just know that the area where you will be able to set up is primitive and you will have to transport it to and from the nearby parking area. Uneven ground, no water or electricity. All of that is on you.

All shade tents must be weighted down. NO STAKES. We recommend a minimum of 25lbs per leg. You can buy tent weights at most stores that you can purchase a pop shade tent. A great alternative for a tent weight is a pre-filled 3-gallon water jug. You can buy these at most grocery stores near the cases of water. You can re-purpose after the event for drinking water.

Due to high fire danger:
NO FIRES/NO FIRE PITS
No burning of any kind
NO charcoal or pellet grills

The Law

Rules of the Race

1) Be courteous. There are plenty of passing opportunities on this course but if you must pass right this minute, please do so in a kind way. If you have a mechanical issue, please repair it on the side of the course and allow riders to pass easily. We're all out here having a good time!

2) Be a good person. No littering, help out if someone is in need, use restrooms where available, smile, and say thanks to all of the great volunteers out on course.

3) Riders must be registered. No poaching, please. It's rude. Refer to rules #1 and #2

4) Be Prepared. This is a self-support course and it isn't downhill both ways (1,900' ish feet of up and down fun over 15.5 miles). We will NOT be offering a bag drop. All of your support will need to be on you or at the solo or neutral support zone at base camp. If you have a mechanical issue while out, it's always a good idea to have something on you to take care of minor problems like flats, chains, etc... There will also be patrols out supporting the race if you really need an SOS.

5) Lap Rules. Don't cheat, we're (our technology is) watching!

6) Respect the SLOW – NO PASSING ZONE signs. Don't pass other riders in these zones and be careful.

SOLO Riders:
If you plan on riding through and doing another lap without taking a break, you do not have to have to dismount and check-in/out at the exchange area. You only need to dismount and check-in at the exchange tent if you are taking a break.

Duo & Team Riders:
When teams are transitioning from rider to rider, each person must exit and enter the course through the exchange tent.
When you are out on course, as you approach the transition area, you must dismount your bike and exit to the right in the transition area. Your next team member going out, will not begin until you have crossed the timing mat, and exited the course through the transition area.

7) No riding in Pit Zone. Succinctly put, No riding in Pit Zone.

8) Last Lap. The last lap cut-off for the 12 division is at 6:00 pm. The last lap cut-off for the 6-hour division is also at 6:00 pm.

9) We make every reasonable attempt to resolve issues in a timely, fair and courteous manner. If you have a problem or issue, please find a race official and express your concerns. The GOAL Foundation as the governing organization will make a final decision and notify you within a reasonable amount of time.

10) No Headphones. Due to the nature of our course, we need to have all of our riders alert and able to hear when other riders are approaching.

VOLUNTEER

We would love you (our your crew) join our army of amazing volunteers! As you may have heard, we have the BEST VOLUNTEER ON THE PLANET!

Join us for a beautiful day on the top of lovely Powder Mountain. All volunteers will receive an awesome hat, food and new memories.
