Roaring Fork Mountain Bike Association (RFMBA)
Dedicated to creating and sustaining the best possible mountain bike trail system in the Roaring Fork Valley.
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.
Event Registration* Details on race format are subject to change based on county restrictions related to Covid-19.
The price is $90 for the series of 6 races and includes 1 timing chip. If you lose your timing chip and need a replacement after week 1 the cost is $10 each. The fee for individual races will be $20 per week.
The registration fee does not include the bike park lift ticket. Riders can purchase a late arrival lift ticket for just $37, valid 3pm until dusk if they do not have a Snowmass Bike Park Pass.
*Participants must be at least 10 years old and anyone under 18 will need a parent or guardian to sign the electronic release waiver. A helmet and knee pads are required in order to race.
REGISTRATION FOR THE 2021 SEASON OPENS ON JUNE 1ST
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.
