The Winter Park Mountain Bike Race Series kicks off Saturday June 13, 2009 with hill climb race 1. The course is a 5.3 mile non technical climb with a 2,062 foot gain in elevation. Race starts at Winter Park Resort with the finish line at the top of Mary Jane at Lunch Rock. Views from the top are fantastic looking down on the Frazer Valley and the Continental Divide. Here is a topo of the course. Race times start at 10:00AM and each division three minutes after. Check in starts at 8:00AM. This is a great way to start off the Mountain Bike Series. It’s a great ride that is not technical to start off the mountain bike season.
2009 is the 17th year of The Winter Park Mountain Bike Series and it is the largest in Colorado. Make a great weekend and ride some of the 600 plus miles of mountain bike trails before or after the race or just soak your sore legs in a hot tub!
