Mountain Bike racing in COS

Mountain bike racing in Colorado Springs is gonna be big this year in Colorado Springs! We have the 24 Hours of COS - the 24 hr national champs in September and a new stop on the Pro XC series in June. In addition to those big events, Sand Creek Sports will be holding six local events - the five race Ascent Cycling Series on Wendesday nights through out the summer and the Pro Cycling Classic XC on July 1st. For the Ascent Cycling Series, three of the races (June 6th, July 18th, and August 8th) will be held on the fast singletrack of the Bear Creek Terrace mountain bike trails. The other two races (June 13th and July 25th) will be contested among the fun rocks of Palmer Park. The Wendesday night races are late enough to accomodate most work schedules and with separate start times and caps on the field, there is plenty of room on the trail to ensure good clean fun racing. With two different venues and five different courses, there will be something for everyone at the Ascent Cycling Series. All levels and abilites will have fun and find challenges at the "Wendsday night at the races" - and with the local races and cheap entry fees, there really is no reason not to show up for the Ascent Cycling Series this summer!

New this year will be the partnership between Sand Creek Sports and Pikes Peak Sports to promote the events and to provide an "inside the race" view of mountain bike racing. How? Well, local badass and all around good guy Cameron Chambers and I will be flying the Sand Creek Sports Jerseys at the races as rider/ambassadors. We will be at all the races, encouraging fellow racers. We will also be writing about the races with pre and post reports on Pikes Peak Sports. It's going to be a fun summer with lots of good local races and I am happy to be part of it!
