TransRockies Announces New 3-Day MTB Stage Race in Moab - Moab Rocks


The organizers of North America’s original mountain bike stage race, TransRockies, are bringing their experience to the United States with the inaugural edition of Moab Rocks.

Moab Rocks is a 3-day mountain bike stage race that takes riders over some of the best trails Moab has to offer.

The 3-day event will mix proven rider favorites including Porcupine Rim, Upper Porcupine Singletrack, Amasa Back, and Jacob’s Ladder with new riding hot spots like Captain Ahab and Mag 7 giving riders a full serving of true Moab mountain biking.

The race runs October 12th to 14th and features cross country racing with timed enduro segments along the way.

Each stage will be accompanied by a post race party including beer provided by Moab Brewery and a wrap party and meal at Bar M Chuckwagon following the final stage.

Moab Rocks Director of Marketing, Dan Savage, had this to say about the event, "We want to provide riders with great racing but even more importantly we want them to have fun in an atmosphere they can enjoy and connect with each other. We also want to highlight some of the great work Moab has done developing new trails over the past few years”

The race crew at TransRockies has proven organizational skills and their experience directing multi-day mountain bike races is unsurpassed in North America, that experience and skill should translate into a top-notch first-year event.

Get ready for an amazing season ending mountain bike festival in Moab on October 12th to 14th. Long known as one of the world's most iconic mountain biking destinations, Moab has played host to riders from far and wide. 

Moab Rocks takes some of Moab's best classic and new routes including Captain Ahab, Porcupine Rim and Mag 7 and combines them into a 3-day masterpiece of all mountain XC riding with timed descents. 

Moab Rocks will present not only the best in Moab riding, but also the best in Moab culture, with daily socials featuring beer from Moab Brewery, served at Swanney Park and a wrap up party at Bar M Chuckwagon.

In recent years, the Moab mountain biking community has worked tirelessly building epic singletrack trails and growing its reputation as a mountain bike Mecca. Moab Rocks will work in partnership with the Moab Trails Alliance, Moab Trail Mix, and under permit from the Bureau of Land Management and the Manti-La Sal National Forest.  

TransRockies Events pioneered Mountain Bike Stage Racing in North America with the TransRockies Challenge in 2002, and the 3-day race format with the TR3 starting in 2009. Poison Spider Bicycles has brought its expertise in Moab's mountain bike trails and community to Moab Rocks.
