We love a party just as much as anybody, but 2020 doesn't seem to want us celebrating en masse. So, to carry on a 37 year Park City trail tradition, we are turning the infamous Tour des Suds VIRTUAL and VIRUS FREE.
NEW COURSE! In light of the uniqueness of this virtual race season, we've created a new course that will showcase a brand spanking new (and yet to be opened) section of the 9K Trail along with some great, old-school singletrack. Register today and stay tuned for more details and online map!
HOW VIRTUAL WORKS:
COURSE INFO: View Course Map. Begin on Park Avenue at the entrance of Park City’s, City Park to the top of Guardsman Pass. The distance is approximately a 7-mile hill climb on single and double track trail, with a 2,700′ elevation gain. From City Park, we ride up Park Avenue turning left on Heber Ave then Right on Main Street and continue up Daly, by the water tank. Left at intersection uphill on Service Rd. (Ontario Bypass), turn right at next intersection and stay to the far right where the single track skirts the dirt pile, follow Ontario Bypass/Tour Des Suds signage to the Guard Rd. Cross the Guard Rd and continue on Ontario Bypass/Tour Des Suds to intersection with Mid Mt Trail. Turn right on Mid Mt and continue on it until you reach the Tour Des Suds intersection. Go left on Tour Des Suds and continue up to the service rd. Turn left on the service road and continue to the next intersection. Go left (short downhill) on service road until it runs into the Team Big Bear single track where you will veer right. Stay on Team Big Bear until the Flagstaff loop intersection. Take the left most single track for about .6 mile, veer right on grassy double track and then a quick left onto single track until you hit the dirt road. Trend uphill on the dirt road for a few hundred feet and then turn left onto double track, followed by a hard right onto single track. Stay on the single track until you hit pavement. Turn left (uphill) on the street and then continue downhill, veering left in between boulders on gravel road to the finish.
