A Technical 12-hour Mountain Bike Race in the heart of the Rockies!
OMG! It’s Alive!!! We have final approval for the all new 12 hour mountain bike race in central Colorado (SALIDA). Race day is set for May 5, 2018. Event load in begins May 4th at 1:00pm. There will be a MANDATORY racers meeting on friday evening at 8:00PM at the Boathouse Cantina 228 North F street Salida Colorado! Did we say MANDATORY? YES, yes we did!
Okay, here’s the skinny. This is a very technical 12 hour course that uses the trails just east of downtown Salida. The course will also use “F” and Sackett Streets. This is also where the team pits and vendor expo will be set up. Load in for solo and team pits is from 12:00pm to 10:00pm May 4th. Solo racers will have pit space closest to the timing center. The race will begin at 7:00am and last racer to leave the timing center will be 6:00pm, as the laps will take the fastest folks a little over an hour! The race is also on CINCO DE MAYO! So yes, there will be beer and costume theme for racers who wish to compete for the best hispanic attire! We have several beer sponsors. So your entry fee includes 3 free beer coupons. Non Competitors will be able to purchase beer at a discounted rate.
