Frisco Bay Invitational @ Frisco Peninsula
Aug 25 @ 8:00 am – Aug 26 @ 5:00 pm

2018 Course Description

This high-altitude course is located at the Frisco Peninsula and incorporates the popular Nordic trails in the White River National Forest. The course is fairly rocky given the local geology of glacial out wash and alluvial deposits.

The course starts in front of the Frisco Day Lodge where riders ride up Recreation Road and turn right onto a double track heading east across Peninsula Road. The course then enters the Frisco Nordic trail system. A mix of single track, double track, and dirt road circumnavigates the peninsula in a clockwise direction. The first section of single track includes Balfonz Buzz, Jody’s Nugget, Riechl’s Retreat, and Rush’s Hill. Be prepared for a relatively steep loose descent down to Crown Point Road. The course is peppered with rolling single track as well as short rocky climbs and descents. Riders return to the finish on a spectator friendly trail built by the Town of Frisco.

Cloud City Challenge @ Colorado Mountain College
Sep 9 all-day

2018 Course Description

The race will start and finish at Colorado Mountain College (CMC) in Leadville. The course includes portions of the CMC cross-country trail system and Lake County trails maintained by the Cloud City Wheelers in Leadville.

The course starts up a gradual climb through a pine forest and meanders through the Nordic ski trails to an old mining road. Riders will then turn onto Upper Deck, a twisty single track, which intersects Wheelers Way. The course descends clockwise on Wheelers Way eventually sending riders up through the aspen forest on Golddigger and Cold Feet. The course will once again intersect with Wheeler’s Way where it rolls down and up to Old Chub. Riders will quickly intersect with a double track road to Lower Boulders a fast mix of double track and single track. The course turns left back onto the Nordic trails with a double track climb back to the finish. Total course distance is approximately 6.1 miles, with approximately 650 feet of climbing per lap.

We are extremely grateful to Leadville Coach Bruce Kelly and to Sterling Mudge of the Cloud City Wheelers for their course design and consultation.
