Well, a “friend” just convinced me to sign up for this event. It’s the Kokopelli Trail 140 mile one-day MTB Race. The race is from Fruita, Colorado to Moab, Utah. https://www.kokopelli100.com/
Here is a short blurb from the organizers:
For decades the Kokopelli Trail has served as the benchmark of mountain bike and ultra trail running excellence. Stretching 144 miles from Fruita, Colorado to Moab, Utah, this iconic and historic trail where dinosaurs once walked bridges the two greatest outdoor communities in the world. Now you can ride and run the 104 & 144 miles of the Kokopelli fully supported in one of seven different mountain bike or ultra marathon races or relays. Join Kokopelli 100/140 MTB & ULTRA Founder Mark Jensen and Director of Training Dan Wilcox for an inspiring discussion on the legendary Kokopelli Trail and proper training, nutrition and equipment needs for your first 100 mile mountain bike or ultra marathon event. Participants will receive a complimentary training plan, equipment list, tips and tidbits on the world’s most iconic MTB and ULTRA trail and the opportunity to receive a free SPOT GPS tracking device ($150 value) by signing up for the Kokopelli 100/140.

Figured I would start a discussion here in hopes we could talk about race prep, tire selection, and training.
