Event description

The 12 Hours of Old El Paso or 12 HOEP is a team relay or solo racer mountain bike event held on the northeast of the beautiful Franklin Mountains, in El Paso, Texas. The venue is at the Bowen Ranch Roundhouse. The race is a Halloween or Día de los Muertos theme. This year our race will be held rain or shine on Saturday.  While this is a race, it’s also an amazing day on the mountain to make new friends and spend quality time with your fellow mountain bikers as well as with any outdoor enthusiasts!

Costumes

Besides our awesome race course, one of our greatest attractions is the Halloween or Día de los Muertos theme, so the costumes that our competitors come up with for the event give such a cool vibe. They can get extremely creative with their individual or team costumes. Prizes for the best overall costumes!

The Course

The course is roughly 11 miles in length, and consists of smooth, fast flow trail, short sections of small-to-medium rocks, fast descents, short steep climbs, mellow rolling single track, berms, gravel roads, a few arroyo crossings, and more. All-in-all it is one fast super race course!
