    The Wyoming stop on the NUE series tour, The Pierre's Hole 100 is a mountain bike race of 50 or 100 Mile distances.

    Pierre's Hole is valley tucked up to the WY border on the western side of the Tetons, was once known as the strategic center for fur trade in the Northern Rockies. Today it is known as the strategic gathering place to ski unfathomable deep powder and ride some of the best unknown single track in the nation.

    On August 6th, 2011 Pierre's Hole 100 provided this pleasure to the fortunate souls that have entered this epic race (journey), See the video on Youtube.

    The race course is situated under the Le Tres Tetons, or the three Tetons (Grand, Middle, and South Teton); with single track loops at Grand Targhee Resort (GTR), the descending (Mill Creek) and the ascending of Teton Canyon via drainages wrapped with single track. The views are breathtaking as you will be racing under these magnificent peaks, albeit you may not see much of them while your HR reaches VO2 while climbing out of Teton Canyon.

    Staging for the race is from the Grand Targhee Resort, where there is ample lodging and necessary ammenities available for racers. The Pierre's Hole 100 consists of over 15,000 feet of climbing on mostly single and doubletrack trails. The village at GTR will be full of pre and post party events, including a band.

    The 2012 Rendezvous for the Battle of Pierre's Hole 100 will take place on August 4, 2011.

    (Disclosure: I am a co-race director, needless to say its still a GR8 race)

    Will second the awesomeness of this race, not to mention the difficulty.

    Question: will you stay with the 4x25 mile laps or are you planning on the 3x33 as has been hinted at previously?

    The course will only change if we can get the single track built this spring/summer. The plan is to finish it in time to be used for the race.
    Until the completion of this work, the course will remain 4x25.
    That being said..It is almost certain you will see add'l single track on course for '12
    WE ARE WORKING HARD FOR THE 3X33.

    For Now here is a lap on the 2011 course to get the training juices going.
    Cheers.
