The Huracan 300 Challenge is the ULTIMATE OFF-ROAD ENDURANCE EXPERIENCE in the state of Florida. The route features over 100-miles of singletrack, many remote miles of double track forest roads and abandoned paths, and a few miles of pavement here-and-there. During the route, riders cross numerous forests, The Cross Florida Greenway, two mountain bike parks, and miles of some of Florida’s longest and hardest climbs. That’s right, we said long and hard.
Routes will be completed, finalized, and released by November 1st, 2021, there will be 2 routes available. You can only choose one, choose wisely. If you want both files, buy two tickets!
