The Vapor Trail 125, what a great race! 125 miles of some of the best riding in Colorado! 17,000+ feet of climbing and all at night!

The Vapor Trail 125 will crush your soul in one minute and then leave you begging for more in the next. From climbing to the Continental Divide in the darkness of night to the screaming descent off Canyon Creek to the traverse of the Monarch Crest trail, it will challenge you mental and physically.

A true Colorado backcountry experience! Nothing better than pushing your body for 15+ hours on some of the hardest terrain Colorado can throw at you.
Jeff Kerkove - Eagle, CO
The Vapor Trail simply stands alone. There is no other race like it anywhere. The word "epic" gets bandied about a lot but one look at the Vapor Trail route removes all doubt. This one truly is!
Dave Wiens - Gunnison, CO
It's a trail riders race. You have to be strong and skilled to be able to finish.
Nick Thelen - Colorado Springs, CO
The best 125 miles you will ever spend sometimes on your bike. The funnest 17,000+ of climbing you will ever do in the dark. Some of the best scenery Colorado has to offer that you won't see in the dark. All that combines to make one of the best MTB events around!

The Vapor Trail 125 is the toughest damn thing I had ever done…by far. The race starts at 10 PM in Salida, CO at 7,000 ft above sea level, and the event objective is to be finished by the following nightfall. You cover 125 miles, over 17,000′ of climbing, and traverse and ride along the Continental Divide several times. As you can probably figure out, the first 8 hours of this race are in the dark in the backcountry of Colorado. Needless to say, there are many challenges you are faced with over the course of this adventure.
