In conjunction with the State of Wyoming and the City of Casper, REV3 Adventure is excited to present year two of the three-and-a-half day Cameco and the City of Casper Cowboy Tough Expedition Race. This race will challenge individual’s and teams’ physical and mental endurance to the limit. With Wyoming as the backdrop for the event, you can expect a wide variety of terrain that is beautiful, rugged, and inspiring. For year two, we have taken feedback from 2013 CBT participants to make this adventure even better. Teams will start out in a genuine ghost town before tackling some of Wyoming’s most challenging back country. Mountain biking though technical single track, fire roads, and flowing trails is on the adventure menu. With two canoe paddle sections and a whitewater rafting section, everyone will get their fill of water travel. Multiple navigation courses will challenge even the most experienced map reader, but for the first-time expedition racer it will be enough of a challenge to complete each day by selecting to travel to only the mandatory check points. We know you’re buff…but are you Cowboy Tough?

Each day of the race will be broken into stages that will take between 16 and 24 hours to complete. The stage must be completed in a prescribed time to avoid being short-coursed or having points deducted. Teams will be held at the end of each stage at a transition area (TA) called a “Dark Zone” before being allowed to continue to the next stage. Mandatory points must be collected between TAs. Optional points collected will determine who will ultimately be crowned winner of the Cameco and the City of Casper Cowboy Tough Expedition Race.
For elite adventure racers, there will be adequate optional points to keep you racing nonstop for the duration of the race. For teams out for the experience, collecting mandatory points will push you to your limits but also allow for recovery and rest during the “Dark Zone.”
This is a non supported race. REV3 will transport a transition container for each team member in the mobile TA for resupply.
