Gila Monster Road Race presented by SkyWest Media.

Cabins in Pinos Altos to the intersection of NM 15 and NM 35 from 9AM to 1:30PM.
The final stage kicks off early at Gough Park in Silver City. One of the toughest days of racing in North America, the Gila Monster is a challenge for everyone–pro or amateur.
Similar to the Thursday stage, this iconic stage takes the racers in a reverse loop. After a steep descent down Hwy 152, all but one category makes a sharp left/right/left series of turns then travels 30 miles through the extremely scenic Mimbres Valley with rolling hills offering terrific views of each peloton against mountain backdrops with vast meadows or tall pines.
