King of the Hammers is an off-road race that combines desert racing and rock crawling. This race is held in February on Means Dry Lake at Johnson Valley, California United States. Years past the race has seen attendance at about 70,000 people and upcoming years look to be around 200,000. King of The Hammers race week has expanded from one race, King of The Hammers, held each year on Friday, to a series of 5 races held throughout the week. The races include King of The Motos on Sunday, The KOH UTV Race on Wednesday, The Every Man Challenge Race on Thursday, and a new ULTRA4 vs. Rock Bouncer shootout held on Monday night of race week.
Ride in the Rocks is an event for the whole family. Hard core mountain bikers will be challenged by our “Tuff 15 mile Challenge” course. It contains all of the desert elements, rocks, sand washes, cactus, and Joshua trees. It has light technical portions, climbs and good stretches of down-hill. With temperatures in the 70s to 80s you will enjoy pristine air and clear blue skies.
We still have the “Tame 10 Mile Course” and the “Five Mile Tail Run/Walk” for those who want to enjoy the desert at a slower pace.
Ride in the Rocks takes place in the scenic little town of Lucerne Valley, California. We are located just 30 miles north of Big Bear Lake, and 102 miles northeast of Los Angeles.
