After a failed attempt in 2023, professional mountain biker and gravel racer Hannah Otto returned to the iconic Kokopelli Trail this spring for another run at the women’s fastest known time. The Kokopelli Trail is a challenging 140-mile off-road route between Moab, Utah, and Fruita, Colorado, following rough dirt roads and singletrack.

The previous record was set by Kaitlyn Boyle in 2020 with a time of 13 hours and 7 minutes, but this May, Hannah shaved over an hour off that with a total time of 11 hours, 53 minutes, and 30 seconds. Kokopelli Strong is a new short film that documents her record-setting ride. Watch it below, and then scroll down for a bike check video for a closer look at Hannah’s Pivot Mach 4 SL.

“In my mind, I was sprinting, but really, my body was just wobbling down the trail. My brain knew I had to go, but my body was in full revolt.”
