One of the most hallowed races in the western US. Held the day before the real ‘Queen of the Classics’, the French race that goes from Paris to Roubaix.
An 18.7 miles (30k) loop with 43% paved roads & 57% unpaved roads in North Boulder County. Rolling terrain on roads that can be anywhere from smooth to extremely rutted. It all depends on the weather running up to the race. If it is wet on race day, expect slippery, sloppy conditions on the dirt sections. Neutral support is based on volunteer availability and is unlikely. Please bring a pump and spare tube. Do a “bolt check” and bottle cage press.

FROM FORT COLLINS: Hwy 287 South. Right turn onty Hwy 66. Left onto 75th through Hygiene (turns into 73rd). Right turn onto Niwot Rd. (becomes 45th then Neva). Right on 39th. Please don’t drive on course.
