Race Description:  The Comstock Epic is an Individual Time Trial Self-Support Mountain Bike Race starting at the Utah/Nevada borderline and finishes at the Nevada/California borderline.  The Comstock Epic is an underground race.  This race is not organized, sanctioned, supported or permitted by anyone.  There are no entry fees, awards or prize money.  The Comstock Epic route follows mostly dirt roads and has significant hike-a-bike (see video, fast-forward to video time 19:40).  The Comstock Epic does not have any route signs or markers.   Navigation and self-preservation are completely up to you.  Heed the TNT Principles & Advisories.

​Race Support Rules:  The Comstock Epic is a Self-Support Mountain Bike Race.  Use only resupply services available to all racers.  No cache drops.  No prearranged outside support or assistance.  No electric or gas motor assistance.  If you leave the route, you must return to the same location to continue the race.  No prearranged commercial resupply, with one exception--Ike's Canyon Guest Ranch (Access to Ike's Canyon Guest Ranch requires advanced paid reservations).  The Comstock Epic is not only an endurance race, but a strategic resupply puzzle.  Do you carry extra water & food to avoid detours to resupply towns?  Or do you travel light and take the energy & time penalty to ride off route to resupply towns?
