78821 US 40, Winter Park, CO 80446

Registration: FREE but we still need all participants to register and sign a waiver.   The race categories are Men's Expert Loop, Women's Expert Loop, Men's Sport Loop, Women's Sport Loop, and Juniors' Sport Loop.

Race Timing: We'd like everyone to bring their smart phones with the Strava App ready to go... Strava will enable us to use segments within the race course for recognizing additional achievements. These segments will be sponsored and prizes from our generous sponsors will be awarded! Some truly great prizes including tires, wheels, helmets, etc! For example, the biggest downhill will be the black diamond segment. The biggest hill climb will be the polkadot segment. Etc. Since a racer can only wins one prize, the "love" will be spread out for others' exceptional efforts.
The beauty of this type of racing is that you can chill out and target a segment that you feel strong on... instead of having to win the whole event!

Race Course: Lots of singletrack up in the Idlewild Area! Details posted soon... Details:
The Winter Park Nordic Club is thrilled to announce that the 2016 races/rides are FREE and intended to be equally social as they are competitive! We are even more excited about hosting a charity raffle to raise funds for Wounded Warrior Project.

How will this work? Bring a check for a minimum donation of $25, made out to Wounded Warrior Project. The donation will get you a race number, a free beer ticket as well as a raffle ticket for the event's swag raffle. The top 5 racers, with race numbers, in the Men's Expert Loop, Women's Expert Loop and Junior Sport Loop categories will win 15, 12, 10, 8 & 6 extra raffle entries. There will be some Strava segments on the course that will have swag for the fastest times... so make sure you have Strava set up and running on your cell phone. Local bike shops will have donated swag for those champions. One prize per person... including the Strava segment champions... and you get to pick from the swag table in the order you are drawn.

Starting requirements for all participants:
1) Headlight and blinky tail light required.
2) Cell phone for emergencies.
3) Space blanket/extra shell for emergencies.
4) Your bike must be able to "leave a flat track" on reasonably soft trails... or you'll have to sit this event out. The track will be pretty soft earlier in the day, so please do not pre-ride unless you can leave a flat track! We delayed the start time to let the course cool off and get firm
5) A positive can-do fun attitude!

FAMILY and FRIEND BONUS! Hideaway Park has a FREE sledding hill complete with sleds and a firepit that will be blazing for you.
