The 80 and 100 mile riders will turn around at the petroglyphs this year - we won't be taking you all the way to Guffy Bridge and Celebration Park. (no boulders). It will be a relatively easy 100, and if you're wanting to qualify for the National Championship at City of Rocks, this would be a good 100 to try.
