2019 Wild Horse Dirt Fondo Set for April 27 in the Cedar Mountains, Utah; Registration Opens February 15

The Wild Horse is on for Saturday, April 27, 2019! This will be the fifth year of this demanding dirt fondo around the Cedar Mountain Wilderness of Tooele County. Route options include the full route of 76 miles or a Little Wild Horse option of 31 miles.

There is no pavement on the route. Wild and remote will greet you, with 100-mile views over the Great Basin and into Nevada. Each year riders have encountered wild horses during the event. The event can be ridden on a mountain bike (the choice of most riders) or a cross or gravel grinder bike.

The start line is in Delle, about 45 minutes west of Salt Lake City on I-80. With a start time of 9 A.M. for the long route and 10 A.M. for the Little Wild Horse, riders can spend the night at home and easily make the start. Or join the repeat riders who are camping on the course.

The Wild Horse benefits the Utah League High School MTB Scholarship Fund. This fund makes it possible for all kids to be a part of the booming Utah high school MTB scene.

Ride really fast? For the first man and first woman to break the current course record, TrueNorth Wealth will donate $350 each to the Scholarship Fund.

Prize draw table items from Kuhl, Mavic, Stan's NoTubes, Black Diamond and others, including gift certificates to many local bike shops. Registration opens on Friday, February 15, 2019.
