ACC – Snowmass XC- MTB Race

August 10, 2016 @ 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm

MTB Race

The Aspen Cycling Club has a great race schedule planned for the 2016 season with 9 road and 9 mountain bike races starting on April 27th and ending with their banquet at the Limelight Hotel on September 14th. The race schedule features “classic” ACC races, new variations of some of the classics, as well as a revival of the Hospital/ Ashcroft/South Hayden race.  Races are on Wednesday evenings, registration opens at 5pm, race starts at 6pm.

If you’re not a racer but want to meet other riders, consider volunteering as a marshal at one of the ACC’s Wednesday evening races.  The ACC has also scheduled a volunteer trail work evening, set for July 13th.  Huge thanks to the ACC and it’s members for supporting RFMBA with a matching challenge grant in 2015!
