Come experience the best gravel roads in Colorado and race the SBT GRVL Race

Come explore the amazing gravel roads of Steamboat Springs, refine your technical skills and event strategy, enjoy some of the wonderful food and nightlife that Steamboat Springs has to offer, and finish off the week with SBT GRVL, a world-class gravel race.

SBT GRVL is the new premiere gravel race held on some of the greatest gravel roads in the world.  Colorado gravel is unlike anything else you’ll find, smooth hard pack that rolls fast, yet challenges with elevation and its persistence.  Steamboat Springs’ varied terrain and captivating scenery will provide the backdrop for our daily adventures.

While at this camp, you will be treated like a professional cyclist in every way: from professional mechanical support and to expert coaching instruction. Pinarello will even be on hand with their demo fleet of new gravel bikes for you to try out or even ride for the whole week.  After a few days of honing your gravel riding skills and exploring the fantastic roads around Routt County we will bring it all together as we toe the line at the SBT GRVL event.

Your SBT GRVL entry is included. If you already have an entry, we’ll take $200 off your camp price.
