Now in its fourth year, the Snowmass Bike Park’s Local Race Series is back for another season of local racing. Join local and visiting riders, or challenge your friends on a different course each week, then exercise your bragging rights over a cold beer at the Limelight Hotel Snowmass after the race. These events are being held in conjunction with Snowmass Bonus Nights at Elk Camp & Bonus Bike Nights held every Tuesday from June 29 – August 10.
In order to spread out competitors, racing will begin at 4pm and the last start will be at 6:30pm. When registering competitors will be asked to select a wave. There will be 3 waves, 4-5pm, 5-6pm, & 6-6:30pm. There will not be a specific start time within your wave but we ask that you stick to the hour of the wave you selected. Racers will start at intervals of 1 per minute.
All competitors will need to check in at the base of the Elk Camp Gondola to receive a timing chip and bike plate. Check in will begin at 3pm and close at 5:30pm. Racers should check in each week to confirm you are on the start list.
We will host an awards ceremony after the 6th race. Each registrant will be entered into a raffle to win prizes from our sponsors each week. You will be notified via email after the event if you are selected as a prize winner. The winner of the series will be determined by the best 5 of 6 results. Instead of cumulative time over the series the finish place (ie 1st, 2nd, 3rd etc) will be added up. The winner will be the racer with the lowest sum of 5 out of 6 race results.
Racers can group up to form a team whose combined individual times over the series of all 6 races will determine the winner. The top 3 times from each team will be added each week and the top 3 teams will be awarded at the end of the series. Teams must have a minimum of 3 and maximum of 8 members.
