Race Review with Zach cleland

TOUGH LIKE RORR 2022

DATE LOCATION

Despite last year ’ s Tough Like RORR being an absolute beast , this year RORR managed to pull out even more incredible terrain . The main event gave five hours to do two laps on a 13-mile course . The track started out with some flowy trail that gradually increased in difficulty . Things picked up in “ 409 ” where the first big rock garden separated out the field . After this point , rest sections were hard to come by with what seemed like endless rock gardens

and tricky features . Riding just one of these sections is hard , but the relentless back-to-back sections like “ Wicked Garden ” to “ Wrong Side of Heaven ” is what makes this race so mentally and physically challenging . To top off the lap , a new section called “ No Quarter ” consisted off a pit full of rocks that seemed to go on for miles . Regardless of whether you finished the race or not , Tough Like RORR put on an event that you ’ ll talk about for years to come .
