It is getting that time for bicycle racing at Winter Park Resort. This year should bring another great season of cross country bike racing with the Epic Singletrack series.
2012 marks the 20th year of epic cross country racing hosted by the Winter Park Competition Center! The Epic Singletrack Series is proud to be the largest cross-country race series in Colorado, bringing you exciting race courses over the 600+ miles of single track in the Winter Park/Fraser Valley, also known as Mountain Bike Capital USA. The Epic Singletrack series is a set of seven races held at and around the Winter Park Resort area. The races are grouped by ability: beginner, sport, expert and pro.
Some of the biggest names in biking have ridden these races with Lance Armstong being the best known name to race at Winter Park Resort. Lance rode the King of the Rockies in 1999 after winning his first Tour de France. While it is exciting for Winter Park Resort to have hosted such high profile riders as Armstrong, it should also be noted that they are proud to be a welcoming and fun race series for those wishing to try mountain bike racing for the first time. No memberships are required!
