Rebecca's Private Idaho is a 3-day stage race that normally takes place in Ketchum, ID. Due to COVID-19, the race was virtual - or remote - to complete on one's own. There were mileage, elevation, and terrain criteria that reflected the traditional course in Ketchum. The following photos are of Erin Green's Version.
Unlike the days following, Stage 1 took place mostly on singletrack in the Boise Foothills. Erin and her husband, Matt, started the race from their home in Boise.

The most grueling day of them all, Stage 3 - The Baked Potato. One burden of the course was the constant vibration of the washboard gravel roads, not to mention the 100+ miles and nearly 6,000 feet of elevation gain. Albeit a tough stage, it also happened to be the most scenic.
