Crusher in the Tushar
July 11 — 2020
Crusher in the Tushar is 70 miles. Sounds easy, right? Think again. Its 10.000 ft of accumulated climbing, finishing “sprint” up 12% grade at over 10.000 ft above sea level and weather ranging from sun and scorching 100°F down in Piute Valley to wind and hail at Eagle Point makes Crusher one of the hardest gravel races out there. You might want to consider easier gear ratio than you are used for the two gigantic climbs and lightweight suspension of some sort would also come in handy for the 4.000 ft washboardy drop down to Piute Valley.
