2021 Grand Traverse Mountain Bike Race – Aspen to Crested Butte

September 5, 2021 @ 7:00 am 5:00 pm

The Grand Traverse Mountain Bike is no ordinary mountain bike race. It is a point-to-point from Aspen to Crested Butte, Colorado. In total, bikers travel 40 miles over the Elk Mountains with over 7,800′ of elevation gain. The course starts with a 3000′ ascent up Aspen Mountain before continuing deep into the Elk Mountains. This mountain bike race is not for the feint of heart.
