The Puzzler Mountain Bike Race will feature a 13, 35, and 50 mile mountain bike race. Held in the majestic Franklin Mountain State Park, the course is A LOT of singletrack, technical trail.
Each course is considered EPIC by most mountain bikers’ standards with all distances riding to the far north end of the Franklin Mountain State Park. The 50 and the 35 make a large loop around the northern portion of the range. The route is different from previous years. For the 2016 El Paso Puzzler the course goes counterclockwise around the mountain. 35 and 50 mile riders will be going north to Hitt Canyon crossing east to west, and then returning to the east side of the mountain over Mundy’s Gap.
