The 24 hours of Moab

What beats riding Moab?

Riding more Moab, and this weekend the participants of the 24 hours of Moab will get to do plenty of that. The course – a single lap – is shown below. Here are GPX and KML files.

The GPS track is based on the Google Earth image overlay provided by the Granny Gear website, combined with DEM data we got from the USGS to generate the elevation profile.

One lap is a good 14 miles with about 1400 feet of elevation gain. In 2005 someone was able to do 18 of these in 24 hours – totally amazing.

During the race last year we were in town to witness rather apocalyptic conditions: there were enormous downpours during the night – this year we unfortunately won’t make it but we’re looking forward to read the reports.
