Race Info

It’s time for a change! After 5 years at Ft. Stanton, we are moving the 12 Hours in the Wild West to the Village of Ruidoso and the Grindstone Lake Trail System. The move is awesome for many reasons: spectacular, purpose-built mountain bike trails and a great staging/camping area that will be more sheltered from the dust and wind. We will also be right in town with easy access to Ruidoso restaurants, hotels, and services. Seriously, you could roll to the start from several hotels in Ruidoso.

Come see why everyone raves about the Grindstone Lake trail system! If don’t believe me, read the reviews from MTB Project and Singletracks below. This move is going to make the 12 Hours in the Wild West your new favorite Zia Rides event.
