Sunshine hill climb is a classic Boulder hill climb starting at the front door of the Boulder Sports Medicine and finishing in the historic town of Gold Hill. Previous courses had finished 2/3's of the way up where the asphalt ended but ever since the recent love of dirt courses this one has been extended a few miles farther to Gold Hill.
COURSE: 9.14 mile climb with over 3200 feet in elevation gain. Riders leave Boulder Center for Sports Medicine in a neutral start for the first 3/10 of a mile. Racing starts at Sanitas Trailhead and continues up Sunshine Canyon to mile marker 9. The last 3.5 miles are on dirt. There will be 2K, 1K, and 200M to go signs.
ENTRY FEE: $35 for all senior categories, $20 for all junior categories. Annual licenses are not sold on race day but may be purchased online at: americancycling.org
