April 28 UPDATE:
Greetings Encierro Velo Entrants:
After much thought, we have decided to postpone one week to May 7, 2016. As of 8:00 pm this evening, Wednesday, April 27, the forecast is for all areas of the course to receive snow on Thursday night and all day Friday. Monument, which is where the southwest corner of the course lies, is projected to receive 8 to 16 inches of snow. Other areas of the course will receive lesser amounts. . . .
I’m getting ready to go to Fruita to ride with the girls for three days. With 9 kids between us, we really relish only needing to feed ourselves. Looking after ourselves. But things that can be deliciously fun can also go bad. Really fast… Read more
Rather than write about my TT experience, which is pretty consistent week to week (I rode *expletive* hard and *expletive* fast), for my second race report, I’d do a feature on a team that not only participates in the series but also is a platform for helping more women get into cycling and racing.
Dana Platin and Roberta Smith, Naked Women’s Racing Team
I met Roberta Smith from the Naked Women’s Racing Team in week 2 – she was the rider immediately behind me. Roberta is not only crazy fast (she zoomed past me within 1:30 of my start), she’s incredibly nice and an ambassador for the sport of cycling. She didn’t hesitate to offer this newbie some great tips and some whoops of encouragement as we zoomed by each other on the course. . . Read more

The question came up after the floods in 2013, after all the damage in Jefferson County was assessed, and after a core network trails were closed to mountain bikes for too long in the eyes of many. It came after tough conversations about trail usage and maintenance and stewardship. And it came after talk of restrictions and limitations that did not sit well with the people who ride those trails the most. Read more
Women are a very important and growing part of the cycling and triathlon communities. While everyone will agree that cycling clubs and groups are all good, there’s something about an all women’s group.
In order to help foster the growth of women in cycling and triathlon, we are starting a Women On Wheels series to introduce women to the MANY resources available in Colorado just for women. If you are a coach, event organizer, race director or anyone else with information on events and groups specifically for women, please contact Jennifer Findley so we can include the information with our resources.
We hope you enjoy this series and find it useful. Read more
By 303 Ambassador Erin Trail
RaceCO founder Kyle Sipes was inspired to create a grassroots mountain bike race series that would be fun for racers and spectators alike. He moved to Colorado from California and was inspired to create the Race the MAC series, based on his experience as a participant in a grassroots mountain bike race in Irvine, California. In looking at the Colorado racing scene, he noticed that most series were based in the central Front Range (Golden/Boulder) and that the races catered only to the racer’s experience. His idea was to bring a racing festival to the southern Metro Denver area… Read more
