SOLDIER HOLLOW, Utah — On September 30, 2023, the Dirt de Utah unfolded with 25- and 50-mile gravel courses winding through the scenic Soldier Hollow Olympic venue and its surrounding landscape.

The race kicked off as participants journeyed through the historic 2002 Winter Olympics site. They then continued along the Deer Creek Rail Trail, made a U-turn, and conquered the slopes of Decker Canyon’s seldom-open private property. At the summit, racers paused to appreciate the vibrant fall colors in the valley before descending through Soldier Hollow to cross the finish line. The 50-mile racers charged into a second lap, intensifying the competition.

The Open Men’s 50-mile Full Dirty race witnessed a fierce duel between Chris Holley and Nathan Dutton. After crossing the finish line together on the first lap, Dutton secured a decisive lead in the second, claiming victory in the category.

Trek, Forge+Bond, Bucked Up, Gravity Coalition, Uinta Recreation, and Soldier Hollow generously contributed to the podium and raffle prizes.

Race sponsor Forge+Bond went the extra mile, donating two wheelsets to the event. The fastest times for the 25-mile Half Dirty and 50-mile Full Dirty distances in each of the Open Men and Open Women categories earned a set of carbon wheels. Suzanne Jensen, KC Holley, Nathan Dutton, and Lincoln Goodwin proudly walked away with these high-performance wheels.

Stay tuned for the announcement of the 2024 Dirt De Utah date, with registration set to begin shortly thereafter.
