Welcome to the official website for 12 Hours in the Wild West – New Mexico’s season opener for endurance mountain biking! On April 11, 2015 at the Ft. Stanton Recreation Area (just north of Ruidoso), this fourteen mile pure and sacred singletrack with 1700 feet of climbing are a guaranteed motivator to get your buns in shape!
Registration includes a t-shirt or a Wild West cantina for those last minute mtb’ers. Feel good knowing that your registration is going somewhere!
