Taking place again on the flowy trails at Philip S. Miller Park in Castle Rock, this amazing $30M facility offers the perfect endurance mountain bike venue less than a mile from the Colorado Bike Expo and Elephant Rock Cycling Festival. The playful 6.5-mile course is cut into to the hills and drainages surrounding the park and offers ample viewing from the staging area for team members and spectators.
The race will start at 7:00 a.m. on Saturday, June 5 and will end at 7:00 p.m. that same evening. Included with your entry:
- A Commemorative T-shirt
- Great refreshments and entertainment
- Post-race meal and party; complete with food, beer and live music
- Tons of great prize drawings
- Timing with live tracking
New for 2021
The course will be counter clockwise (reverse from previous years). Plus, get your ROCK on! That’s right –we are making this years event themed “ROCK AND ROLL”. Get your team to dress up and decorate your team area for some sweet prizes.
Bike plate numbers with a timing chip on the back will be issued at registration and should be attached to the front of their bike at all times. Every racer will have their own bike plate assigned to them.
Again in 2021, we will work in a partnership with the Colorado High School Cycling League. A portion of all registration fees will go to this amazing organization, in an effort to further their mission of building strong minds, bodies and characters in an inclusive, egalitarian environment by engaging juniors in the challenging and exciting world of competitive cycling.
Post race BBQ and Expo
Stick around after your ride for the post-race celebration that includes live music, beer garden, exhibitors, awards and of course your post race meal. Inform your friends and family that spectators are encouraged, so please join us for all the festivities!
Awards and Prizes
Awards will be presented to the top three teams and solo racers in each category. Prizes and recognition will also be granted for best team name and best team spirit!
