The Sweat - 60 km

Presented By:

"The Sweat" is the second day of the Golden Ultra.  This is the queen stage with the most vertical and the best single track.  You'll be covering just less than 60 km of distance, 2500 m of elevation, and one giant loop. 

Called the "aesthetic line on the mountain" this course is devilishly tough but also stunningly beautiful, with more than 15 km of ridge running.
