Purgatory Grand Prix | Pro GRT

Presented by: Troy Lee Designs


The Pro GRT series makes its inaugural stop at Purgatory Resort in Durango over Labor Day weekend! Purgatory Resort, known for its deep downhill roots, held the first UCI Mountain Bike World Championships in 1990. We couldn’t be more excited to be included in the Pro GRT race series and look forward to an amazing event!

Just 25 miles north of Durango, Purgatory Resort is a scenic drive from most major cities in Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Colorado, Arizona and New Mexico.

Individual rider rankings will be offered for the Pro category. The gated events, such as dual slalom and four-cross (4X), may also be offered at some of the seven stops on the 2018 Pro GRT. Series points are given to top finishers at each event and used to determine the individual men’s and women’s standings that rank the best downhillers competing in the U.S.
