BASE Performance located in Boulder has been substantially growing roots outside of the triathlon community where it started years ago. BASE has been a partner with IRONMAN for years and on courses all over North America. They have been working more and more with organizations in the cycling, trail running, and skiing industries in addition to local triathlons by Without Limits and Breakaway Athletic Events.
And now Team Evergreen announces BASE Performance as a presenting sponsor of the 2021 Triple Bypass bicycle ride and a supporting sponsor of The Hundo, Beti Bike Bash, and Mount Evans Hill Climb. Read more

Team Evergreen introduces the Session Series at Floyd Hill – a new weeknight short-course enduro series with a weekend finale on The Sluice, a highlight acclaimed trail at Floyd Hill in Clear Creek. The Sluice, originally known as Segment 4, opened for the first time on August 21, 2019. This mountain-bike-only public trail offers riders an extremely accessible opportunity to test their skills on a one-way trail. It is one of only a few top-to-bottom bike trails in Colorado aside from ski resorts and is known for its technical, rocky terrain. With steep rocks, high berms, and big jumps, it’s any technical rider’s dream.
The series will benefit Clear Creek County to continue the trail-building efforts of the Colorado Mountain Bike Association (COMBA), including a downhill trail system at Virginia Canyon and the Warren Gulch trail. Project Bike Tech, dedicated to teaching bike mechanics to high school students, will also be a beneficiary of the Session Series. Read more
Team Evergreen Cycling, announces a new addition to their events offering: the Hundo. Known to provide some of the smoothest single track in Colorado in the beloved Buffalo Creek area near Bailey, CO, “the Hundo” will now have a new course, new price, but still promises to give back to the same three beneficiaries.
Since its establishment in 1988, Team Evergreen has donated $3 million to local nonprofits through the proceeds of their events and membership. The Hundo beneficiaries are the Colorado High School Cycling League – a resource for high school students around the state to be exposed to the world of cycling, Lucky to Ride – dedicated to giving underserved and at-risk youth the opportunity to experience and learn about the natural beauty of Colorado, and the Colorado Mountain Bike Association (COMBA) – a non-profit organization dedicated to the development and preservation of great mountain biking experiences in Colorado.

If you have ever met Jen Barbour, the Executive Director of Team Evergreen, who puts on the annual Triple Bypass, you have felt her passion for cycling and equal compassion for people. In an organization who exists to raise money for local charities while riding bikes, she is the perfect fit.
That passion punches a big energy punch too, and like the way she rides a bike, her efforts are relentless and enduring. She has been swamped this year with the recent acquisitions of the Bailey Hundo, and Beti Bike Bash. Then add in the new Floyd Hill Sessions Series (Mtb weekly timed enduro series) and Co2ut Gravel Ride along with all the COVID challenges and working on the Triple Bypass and Bob Cook Mt. Evans Hill Climb, Jen is, well, buried. We managed to sneak a few minutes of her time and ask a few questions about the Triple Bypass and Team Evergreen Read more

igh… We tried. We really did.
We’ve lost a lot of sleep deciding the best way forward for the 2020 Triple Bypass. Though Team Evergreen would love to host you on our epic ride through the Colorado Rockies, after careful consideration of how COVID restrictions will look in September, we decided we couldn’t give you the exceptional experience that we are known for. And we need you to be safe.
So with that, we are officially canceling the 2020 Triple Bypass. We don’t want you to have to ride wearing a mask, eliminate the finish party fun or prevent you from giving congratulatory high-fives to your fellow participants. COVID-19 has taken the air out of the balloon for large events in 2020. It’s a fact we can’t ignore. Read more
From Event Organizers We’ve been working closely with state and city officials on where things stand with COVID-19 and our event. While we had hoped that July 11-12th would go on as planned, the Town of Avon has officially pulledRead More
