Mavic Haute Route Rockies
Carving through the heartland of American cycling, the 2017 Mavic Haute Route Rockies will feature an unforgettable combination of jaw-dropping scenery and breathtaking climbs. The event offers committed amateur riders the opportunity to compete with a professional level of off-the-bike support unprecedented in U.S. amateur cycling.
The first ever week of Haute Route racing in North America features a total of 815 kilometers (507 miles) of riding in the spectacular setting of the Rocky Mountains and 15,000 meters of climbing (49,260 feet). The event kicks off in Boulder and finishes Colorado Springs, showcasing Winter Park, Avon, Snowmass Village and Crested Butte in between. The seven proposed stages include 16 ascents. Among the classic climbs are Berthoud Pass, Independence Pass and Kebler Pass.
Mavic Haute Route Rockies presents itself as a Gran Fondo (you against the clock). A portion of proceeds from Mavic Haute Route Rockies will go to support Team Type 1 Foundation in the fight against Type 1 diabetes.
