After two years of COVID cancelations, the Stumpjumper's Desert 100 was a go! 2022 was the 50th anniversary of this iconic race and it had a record turn out.
This was our 8th time racing in the ADV class. The course is a grind, not particularly difficult but it is relentless. The track is covered in baby head rocks, silt, sand and whoops. There is no opportunity to sit and cruise along, it give you no chance to rest. The DNF rate is 30-50%. 2022 was the dustiest event I've ever been to. The first couple miles had people cruising along in first gear until the dust cloud started to let up.
