Life Time Rad Dirt Fest Now an Official 2025 Life Time UNBOUND Qualifier

For a very select few, gravel cyclists will have an early opportunity to bypass the UNBOUND lottery. Life Time’s The Rad Dirt Fest, will be an official qualifying event for the Life Time UNBOUND 2025.

Participants of this year’s Rad Dirt Fest will have the chance to skip the competitive UNBOUND entry lottery and earn a spot in the 2025 race by participating in the 2024 Rad Dirt Fest. Finishers of the 110- and 70-mile races will be eligible to earn one of the 100 qualifier coins up for grabs.

Half (50) of the qualifier coins will be allocated based on the top riders within each award category. The remaining half (50) will be distributed in a random drawing among all riders that have successfully completed either of the qualifier distances.

Drawn to the aura that surrounds the World’s Premier Gravel Event, Life Time UNBOUND Gravel, cyclists are invited to experience the vibrant energy that is The Rad Dirt Fest. The incredible gravel terrain of Trinidad, Colorado, lies deep in the Southern Colorado Plateau and next to the towering Spanish Peaks that serve as the backdrop for the event’s three unique courses (110-, 70-, 40-mile). The one-of-a-kind venue offers opportunities for gravel cyclists of all levels, with the newest opportunity being the potential for a guaranteed spot in UNBOUND 2025.

The Life Time Rad Dirt Fest is the second of only two official Life Time UNBOUND Gravel qualifying events, and the only in North America. The other qualifying event is the 160-km (100-mile) race at Heathland Gravel in Belgium, which takes place on August 11 and awards a total of 50 qualifier coins.

The Rad Dirt Fest wills serve as the 5th stop on the 2024 Life Time Grand Prix presented by Mazda where 60 of the nation’s best off-road cyclists will take to the line to compete for a combined $300,000 series prize purse. View the 2023 Race Highlights from the Rad on the Life Time Grand Prix YouTube channel.
