Colorado Springs to Rifle Co

Going to be driving 40 DP from Colorado Springs to the Rifle area.
Rather than I 25 to C 470 to I 70, I was wondering about Hwy 24 west from Colorado Springs to Hartsel and the Hwy 9 to Breckinridge to I 70 to Rifle. Any suggestions?
Thanks

Hwy 24 is a popular route for RVers. As you get closer to I-70 you'll have some 6/7% grades to do but your motorhome is more than capable.

I wouldn't take Hwy 9 across Hoosier Pass (11,541' elevation). You'll have a very steep descent to the north for about 4 miles in length with hairpin turns. Instead, at Leadville on 24, take 91 to I-70 then east to Breckenridge and come in from that direction for an easier drive.
