BOISE, Idaho (May 25, 2021) — OmniGo! announces the Sawtooth 200. Originally the Lyle Pearson 200, the newly named event is now presented by Audi Boise and continued support/sponsorship from George’s Cycles. The 2021 Sawtooth 200 will take place the weekend after Memorial Day on June 5th, 2021.
The Sawtooth 200 is traditionally held the weekend after Memorial Day, before summer holiday traffic begins, allowing for the best course experience for participants. The 200-mile route for relay teams of 4 to 6 cyclists includes 5 major climbs and over 12,000 feet of climbing, while the 100-mile route for 2-person teams and solos includes 6,000 feet of climbing and 2 major climbs. Both distances follow one of the most scenic northern routes showcasing Idaho from Boise to Sun Valley.
This will be the 15th running of this cycling event and there has been no holding back in making it a day to remember. Working with the Sawtooth Brewery, the finish expo will be a spring beer fest with food and entertainment. Entry fee includes a meal and beer for each team member plus one support person! All finishers will receive a custom pint glass, and there will be awards for the fastest teams and male and female solo riders. The Limelight Hotel is offering special rates for those who want to spend the weekend in the beautiful Ketchum/Sun Valley, Idaho area.
The Sawtooth 200 road cycling event was founded in 2006 under the original name Lyle Pearson 200. It has been a longtime favorite with a loyal following and has created lasting memories and strong bonds between cyclists.
