    2018 Colorado races in May?

    I was planning on doing the offroad 40 again but I have a scheduling conflict. Does anyone know of any other races in May in the 40-60 mile range?

    look through the calendar at Mountain Bike Radio. I suspect it'll be a month or two before it shows the actual dates but it'll at least give you an idea...

    Anyone done the Gemini Desert Rat 100k and can compare it to the GJ Offroad 40 in difficulty?

    Rocky Mountain Endurance Series usually does the Battle the Bear 60 miler at Bear Creek Lake park in May. Not sure if they are still doing it, as 2017 series was half the races as 2016. Check out https://www.warriorscycling.com/

    The Desert Rats is less technical and overall faster. While the GJ Off-Road is singletrack heavy, the Desert Rats race is Kokopelli Trail proper...which is more of a "road." Desert Rats is still rough and rowdy in spots, but ground is covered faster. Keep in mind it's also 20 miles longer that the GJ event. The only singletrack trail in the Dersert Rats event is Zion Curtain....which depending on how you feel could be a love/hate

    Here is my Desert Rats file from 2017 - https://www.strava.com/activities/986699817

    To echo what others have said look a the Gunnison Growler, the Desert Rats 100k, or the GJ Off-Road.
