ERock Sunrise – Sunset Mountain Bike Race
The Sunrise to Sunset Elephant Rock is designed to offer recreational and competitive cyclists the opportunity to compete in a fun and rewarding 12 hour endurance race on a moderately technical off-road course. Register as an individual or form a team that loves to shred for a memorable day of racing, camaraderie and laughs. Registration is open!
Taking place again at the freshly cut trails of the 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 and flowy 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 1 and will end at 7:00 p.m. that same evening. Registration will be offered the day of the race – opening at 5:30 a.m. and closing at 6:45 a.m. We encourage all racers to arrive early.
Included with your entry:
- Custom long finger cycling gloves
- Great refreshments and entertainment
- Post-race BBQ and party; complete with food, beer and live music
- Tons of great prize drawings
- Timing with live tracking
Bibs/chips will be issued at registration and should be attached to the front fork. Every racer will have their own bib/chip assigned to them. The chip must be returned after the race in order for times to be considered “official”.
Again in 2019, 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 ride celebration, lunch/BBQ, and live music. Inform your friends and family that the expo is also open during the ride itself, so while you are on the course, they can enjoy the exhibits.
The BBQ is provided to all participants. Your wrist band will act as your meal voucher. Tickets to the post race lunch will also be available for friends and family. You may purchase them at the event or when you register online.
Awards and Prizes
Awards will be presented to the top 3 teams/solos in each category. Prizes and recognition will also be granted for best team name, best costume, best decorated bike, best team spirit, best team tent / village, best team promotional photo and last but not least – best bike beard! This will include medals and prizes from our great sponsors.
In addition, to further support the Colorado High School Cycling League, Sunrise to Sunset is excited to announce that a scholarship will be award to the 1st place team in both the 4 & 5 Junior Only categories.
