Roost the Ridges Enduro managed to avoid recent rain and snowstorms, taking place Saturday, March 18, at Lions Wilderness Park.

The race, hosted by Aztec Adventures, drew 125 mountain bikers from Farmington and Durango area, as well as riders from Albuquerque, Gallup and Flagstaff.

Enduro-style races have nontimed uphill portions and timed downhill portions. There are also transfer sections of the course, where riders are not timed but cannot receive outside assistance.

The race’s total distance was 25 miles, with the three timed stages averaging about 1.5 miles each. Only the timed sections contribute to the official finishing time, which determines the winners in each category.
