Spectators encouraged to watch from new Sun Valley features


All races will finish at the lawn on River Run and most will  use the newly improved "Baldy Rocks" flow Zone across the Big Wood River.

Also being utilized will be the new "Baldy Bench" extreme downhill section just above the River Run Shop and the "Climb to the Sun" rock garden coming out of the River Run Plaza area. These are all new features built especially for this event.

Spectators are encouraged to watch these amazing world class riders from River Run Plaza.

The River Run Trail and the River Run Service Road will both be closed to traffic  until noon,  Sunday, July 17. The Bald Mountain Trail will be closed periodically during the week and signs will be posted indicating bypass locations. The Warm Springs Traverse Trail also will be closed from Flying Squirrel to River Run with hiker access  allowed down River Run via the Bald Mountain Trail.

Hikers and bikers on Baldy are encouraged to watch for trail closures, signage indicating alternative routes and fast bikers all through the week.
