The Event

How The West Was Won (HW3) is a Colorado motorcycle endurance rally that is 32 hours in duration. Featuring some of the finest roads and unique and interesting bonus locations in Colorado, How The West Was Won promises to be the most fun you can have on two wheels in 2014. The event runs from Friday, July 25th through Sunday July 27th.

The HW3 will a “scavenger hunt” type format. Riders will be sent a bonus pack a week before the rally, with a list of the bonus locations. From that list, the goal is to plan a route to bag as many bonus locations to reach finisher status. Points will be tweaked so that finisher status will be about 1000 miles. This is primarily a street bike event. There will be bonus options that may be on dirt roads, but nothing that cannot be safely navigated via a street bike.
