Copper Triangle

Registration is now open for Colorado’s Classic Alpine Road Ride! We start high in the Rocky Mountains and only go up from there.

Based at Copper Mountain in the heart of the Rockies, the famous Copper Triangle is a Colorado classic. This road sportive is graced with breathtaking scenery, gorgeous roads and three climbs over 10,000 feet, each with a timed segment.

Every year thousands of riders flock to Copper Mountain. Don’t miss it!

The  Copper Triangle course is a spectacular 79-mile loop that crests three Colorado mountain passes – Fremont Pass (elevation 11,318’), Tennessee Pass (elevation 10,424’) and Vail Pass (elevation 10,666’). The route incorporates three ski areas, is littered with historic mining outposts and includes Camp Hale, the training ground for the famous 10th Mountain Division. The total elevation gain for the course is 6500 ft. Click here to see the map and learn more.
