What is the Sawtooth?

Many rides, one finish. Choose your adventure!

While we all love to ride our bikes, everyone is different. The Sawtooth 200 provides the
opportunity to choose the adventure that works best for you. Be it a relay team that offers the
camaraderie of your closest cycling buddies working together as a group, the full distance in
the unprecedented Sawtooth Uncut version, or the solo effort of laying it out there on your
own for the 100 mile TT, you won’t be disappointed. No matter what you choose, the day ends
with a great party and stories at the finish line in Ketchum.

Sawtooth Relays

The original. The relay dates back to the beginning of the event and is what the Sawtooth is most
famous for. It is the same challenging and scenic course as from the event’s beginning, but you can
divide and conquer it however you like. There are two course distances: the 180 mile that offers 2,
4 or 6 member teams and the 100 mile for 2 person teams. On the 180 route there are 10 segments of
varying topography and you are free to put any number of riders on course (see rules). The 100
mile route consists of the last 5 segments of the 180 mile route. The strategy and possibilities are
almost endless!

Sawtooth Uncut

One of the most epic rides you will ever experience. Brought by popular demand, the Uncut is the
newest addition to the Sawtooth. Take on the entire 180 mile course and conquer one of the greatest!
This mass start ride is reserved for only a select
group. 2022 saw only 27% of riders finish. Are you up to the challenge? Looking for redemption? If
you want bragging rights by making it to the finish, sign up early to claim a spot!

Sawtooth TT

This is for the hardcore of the hardcore. Take on the 100 mile course on your own in time trial
fashion. It’s that simple, and that hard!


“Thanks for a great event. Super challenging course. Can’t wait to do it again… The people
were so awesome to my wife who was supporting me. She couldn’t stop talking about all the
amazing people that she met and supported her supporting me. Great culture. Great event.
Thanks again.”

Bryan Johnson – Finisher of innaugural Sawtooth Uncut

“This ride is literally LOTOJA’s big brother. There, I said it, no take-backs.”

Taylor Dame – Finisher of multiple Sawtooth Relays and
multiple LOTOJAs, looking to settle the score with Sawtooth Uncut

“It’s the sort of event that weaves cyclists together. At the end of the day, there
are at least 3 other people on the planet who have experienced the same rushes,
challenges and euphoria that you will now attempt to communicate to your family
(albeit unsuccessfully) for at least the next week. It’s like being part of a secret
club – suddenly you all have something in common that was so awesome and inspiring
to be part of; you just know it will stay with you for a long time to come.”

Fairlee Frey – Past winner of Women’s Sawtooth Relay

“It is one of my favorite days of the year! I just like hammering across the
state with my good friends.”

Henry Harper – Finisher of every single Sawtooth Relay (16 and

“The Sawtooth is like my favorite thing to do all year… Having teams of
different ability levels on a level playing field is really cool.”

Andrew Harris – Past winner of Sawtooth Relay

These rules help to provide a safe and fair event for everyone. They also allow us to be
invited back in future years. Remember, we are riding on open roads, and we are guests.


  • Only one vehicle per team at each transition.
  • No warming up on the course. We are sharing open roads. Bring a stationary
    trainer or rollers.


  • Drafting is allowed/encouraged among riders of the same team.
  • Drafting is not allowed between different teams.
  • Be ready to fix your own mechanical issues.
  • Numbers – Attach your seat post number to the bike that you will cross the finish
    line with.


  • Due to limited space at each transition:

    • Only one vehicle per team at each transition.
    • Please limit the length of your support rigs. If you use a motor
      home, we ask that you not also have a trailer.
  • Do not follow your riders, drive from one transition to the next.
  • Drive safely at all times.

Course-specific rules

  • Sawtooth Full

    • Only 1 rider per team allowed for segment #2 from Robie Creek to
      Idaho City. 2-person teams where both riders are
      going the full distance can ride this section, but not side by side.
    • Each rider must complete at least 2 segments, excluding the last
    • Each rider can complete a maximum of 4 segments, excluding the last
      segment. 2-person teams can ride as many segments as they wish.
    • A maximum of 3 riders can be on course, except for the last segment,
      where all team members can ride.
  • Sawtooth 100

    • Please be extra cautious when riding through transition areas, there
      may be many team transitions happening around you.


  • There are porta-potties and/or bathrooms at every transition. Use them.
  • Not using them could cost you up to $500 in fines, and may prevent us from
    getting permits to continue the Sawtooth 200 in the future.

Cutoff Times

  • Anyone leaving Stanley after 4pm will not receive an official time.


The route from Boise to Sun Valley is one of the most scenic in the country, and you can take in
every mile of it from your bike saddle. Given the roads we travel on, we need to keep everyone
safe and the local residents happy. It is our goal to continue the event long into the future,
and to do that, we need your help in following the rules.

Uncut Start

  • Riders start at Barclay Bay at 5:45am.
  • Neutral rollout along Lucky Peak Dam Rd, and a half mile up Hwy 21.
  • Official start is just after the flashing traffic sign, approximately mile 11.75 on Hwy 21.
  • For the first 3.9 miles (the top of the first climb), riders may use the right traffic lane
    in addition to the shoulder.
  • From the top of this first climb to the finish line, riders should be as far to the right as
    possible, riding single file, unless actively passing another rider.

Uncut Rider Rules

  • Road bikes only, no aero-bars (mass start).
  • Riders should be as far to the right as possible, riding single file, unless actively
    passing another rider.
  • Drafting, pacelining, and passing are allowed.
  • Riding double-file is not allowed.
  • Failure to follow these rules will result in disqualification, and may result in the
    Sawtooth not being able to renew it’s permit.

Uncut Aid Stations

The Sawtooth will provide four aid stations along the way, allowing riders without any additional
support to complete the route.

In order to minimize time at aid stations and to ensure that everyone gets exactly what they
want, Uncut Riders will be provided with two baskets to put whatever they want into. The first
basket will be at Aid Stations 1 and 3, while the second basket will be at Aid Stations 2 and 4.
We would recommend: 2 bottles with your favorite drink along with your favorite riding foods.
If you leave bottles in the basket after aid stations 1 and 2, we’ll fill them for you with

  • Aid Station 1 at Transition #3, Mores Creek Summit, 42 miles from the start.
  • Aid Station 2 at Transition #5, Grandjean, 41 miles from the last aid station.
  • Aid Station 3 at Transition #7, Stanley, 38 miles from the last aid station.
  • Aid Station 4 at Transition #8, Frenchman Creek, 25 miles from the last aid station.

Uncut Support Crew Rules

While additional support is not necessary, we realize that people often want their own
support. There are a few extra rules for Uncut support:

  • Support vehicles must depart Barclay Bay by 5:40am at the latest, so that they are ahead of the cyclists until Idaho City.
  • The first Transition station that crews can offer support is Transition #2, Idaho City.
  • Support crews can only offer support at Transition stations, not between them.

What about Covid-19 Precautions?
It is our sincere hope that by June the COVID-19 pandemic will be under control
in a way that we can safely hold the Sawtooth 200. First and foremost is the
safety of all participants and staff. The Sawtooth 200 will follow any state
guidelines at the date of the race so we ask that all participants please be
prepared to act in accordance with these guidelines. This may include wearing masks
at any gathering areas such as packet pickup, the start, transition areas and staying
socially distanced. The Sawtooth 200 will also provide hand sanitizers and signage to
encourage safe practices. Event safety guidelines will be finalized and posted in our
event rules section within the month before the event. If we all cooperate and act with
respect we can do this!

What about aid stations?
  • For the Sawtooth Uncut, there are 4 aid stations where riders provide what they want
    before the race and we shuttle it to the aid stations. The basic idea is that there
    will be enough support that you can complete the route and be at no disadvantage to
    another rider who has their own support.
  • For the Sawtooth 100 riders, who often do the event w/o support, we have a
    fully-stocked aid station at the Stanley transition.
  • For the Sawtooth Full relay riders, it is expected that you have all the support
    you need in your vehicles, but of course if you run into an emergency
    (like no more water), stop in at the Stanley transition to top off.
How many team vehicles are allowed?
As many as you like, but only 1 in the transition area at once.
Does the team have to finish together?
No, time is taken on the first rider across the finish line.
What type of bikes are allowed?
Anything without a motor. No e-bikes.
Will I get cell phone coverage?
It’s best to assume that once you leave Boise, you won’t get service until the
except for a bit in Stanley. Plan accordingly 🙂
