    How is the dual sport route, technically speaking. Something that someone with moderate skills will get themselves into trouble?

    The ride is different each year, so no way to gauge this year's route based on any previous year's path. Pieces will pretty much always be repeated- those passes closest to Denver- but as to the rest? well, that's anybody's guess. And you don't get your route sheet until you show up at the Foothills that morning.
    a d/s option is relatively new, no clue as to what they're giving. Likely dirt roads, but nothing real extreme. Maybe.

    The rest was turn by turn directions. GPS coordinates would've been nicer but a great day.

    Few years ago I did my own personalized 100,000 foot ride in Colorado. Easy to do with a paper map (gasp! yes, I still use those darned old things). Simply plotted all the passes that had paved roads (no gravel for me and my street bike), then plotted a reasonable routing that would get enough of those passes to equal 100,000 feet in total elevation. Spent about three days riding around the state and ended up with about 125,000 total feet in elevation, plus lots of great scenery. And in hindsight, the planning and poring over the maps was at least half of the fun.
