It's time to get in gear for the New Year! We are hosting our 1st Annual Copper Mountain Winter Bike Night Race and we're heating things up at the finish line En Fuego style. You don’t need to be an expert rider for ten mile course. Get ready for a great course with crazy spectators, fire performers, fireworks, and celebrate at Incline's Bar & Grill at the end of the race! See you at the start at 5:30 pm.
The 10-mile Copper En Fuego course, open to riders of all fitness and skill levels, will utilize groomed Nordic ski trails, a stair climb, heated brick pavers, snow banks, hills, an ice rink ride and much more.
The Cloud City Wheelers, who will host the entire Winter Mountain Bike Race Series, advocate that winter racing is a great way to keep up riding and racing during the off-season and that their races ‘always end with plenty of tasty food and beverages, laughter and dang good times’. The evening race begins at 5:30pm and the $20 entry fee benefits local bicycle advocacy groups around the Leadville area. Registration will take place on the day of the event, beginning at 3pm at the Incline Bar and Grill at Copper.
Spectators are encouraged to catch the action from Center Village where additional En Fuego entertainment will include a DJ Landry set from 5 to 7pm and fireworks scheduled to erupt as racers return to Center Village from their 1-2 hour ride. Following the race, all are invited to an after party at the Incline Bar and Grill.
