El Doce is held at Powder Mountain Ski Resort, just east of Eden, Utah via Hwy 158. Base camp will be in the same place as last year, located in the parking lot of the Timberline Lodge. Parking is very limited, PLEASE CARPOOL with your team.

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. All items will need to be carried in from the nearby parking area.



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 10.5 as well as at basecamp near the Integrated Tax Transition Zone.


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 - 7:30 pm).


Intermountain McKay-Dee Sports Medicine and Powder Mountain Ski Patrol will be on site for any medical issues.
*For on-course emergencies and evacuations, call 801-745-3772 (select option 3) for mountain dispatch. This will connect you to Powder Mountain Ski Patrol. Please be prepared and save this number into your phone contacts for the weekend.


Knowledgeable staff from The Bike Shoppe will be set up at basecamp outside the Integrated Tax Transition Zone to help assist you with any bike mechanical issues.


There will be 2 specific pit zones. One is designated for solo riders only. The other is for duos and teams to set up their day camps in the base camp area. There will be no vehicle access to the pit zones on race day. Please plan to haul your gear from the nearby parking area. The venue opens for load-in at 5am on Saturday. All spots are first come, first serve.

Solo riders may designate up to 2 people to be your pit crew (you will receive wristbands for them at packet pickup) and will be allowed access into your designated area on the west side of the chute. 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 - 7:30pm.


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. Base Camp opens for load in at 5:00 am on race morning.

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. Please carpool and come early to get the best spot (Base Camp opens at 5:00 am.) 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 burning of any kind
NO charcoal or pellet grills



Camping will be FREE and first-come, first-serve in the Sundown Parking Lot on Friday (after 4pm) and Saturday night. Camping is only allowed in the Sundown Parking Lot. Please be courteous to others and only take the space you need—spots are very limited.

The Sundown bathrooms will be open for the public to use while staying overnight.

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) All 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 15.2 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! The last lap cut-off time is 5:30 pm.

6) 10-Minute Chase: If you are chasing the leaders & arrive within 10 minutes of them leaving for their last lap, you will be allowed to chase. All other riders will be asked to stop at the published lap cut-off time of 5:30pm.

7) 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.

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

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) Headphones. Due to the number of riders and technical aspects of the course, we require all riders to be alert and able to hear when other riders are approaching or may need help. Only 'open ear' headphones such as Shokz are allowed on course during the event. No in-ear headphones, bluetooth speakers, or playing music directly through your phones speakers will be tolerated.

11) No Drones. Drones are not allowed at Powder Mountain without receiving a permit of use prior to the event.

12) E-Bikes are strictly prohibited at this event.

13) Dogs. We highly recommend you leave your four-footed friends at home due to high temperatures and tight quarters in the pit zones and base camp at El Doce. All dogs must be on a leash at all times, and should be comfortable being around bikes and at events with heavy foot traffic. Dogs are not allowed on course, near the chute, or in the exchange area/transition zone due to rider safety.


Volunteer shifts are now open for the 6th annual El Doce Mountain Bike Race held at Powder Mountain Resort! We know we have the BEST VOLUNTEERS ON THE PLANET and would love your help putting on a great event this July!

Volunteers are needed on Friday, July 28th and Saturday, July 29th.


The greatest gift you can give is your time.
