Colorado Veldrijden Crusade

Saturday, October 10, 2009

This is a new format for a cross race – It is an epic 10 mile loop with groups doing 1, 2, or 3 laps depending on which group they race in.

Bear Creek Lake Park
15600 W. Morrison Road: 303.697.6159
Take C-470 to Morrison Rd exit, east to park entrance on south side of Morrison Rd. Proceed east inside park to Coyote Crossing.

Online registration: go to All riders must hold an ACA license – please bring it to registration! One day licenses will be available online, as well as the day of the event.

We are very excited to use a new course which encircles the entire Bear Creek Lake Park. The course is approximately 10 miles in length and features a taste of all types of terrain, with one big climb, rolling hills, lots of singletrack and exciting descents. This will not be just another mountain bike race, as there will be barriers, dismounts and run ups throughout the course. There will be a neutral support feed zone at the end of each lap. The Start/Finish venue will be at Coyote Crossing.

The race course will be clearly marked and signage is up to inform others that a race is in progress, but you never know who could wander on course unknowingly, so please be aware, use caution, and most of all be respectful so we don't lose this great venue.

Also be aware there are other races going on simultaneously. There will be racers passing and getting passed, some from different races. Please be courteous, communicate to each other, and use good sportsmanship. Be patient for a moment or two if it's not a good place to pass and help each other to have fun out there!

Tire and tube sealant is strongly recommended – while we will make every effort to get rid of all of them - there are goat heads on the course! Don’t let one ruin a great race!
