Race #5 in The Series. Held outside the quaint village of Elbert on thePeaceful Valley Scout Ranch, this venue harkens back to a time of windmills and cowboys. Intimate camping at the venue offers a, well – peaceful – setting in which to crown the Series Champions. The 22 mile loop winds through low hills of Black Forest and Ponderosa Pine, which is sure to put a big ring grin on competitors faces as this private course is a real delight. The views of Pikes Peak and rolling prairie are memorable.
