2) Athletes will race on the course set up by race directors. Total length of the course will be approximately seven (7) miles and quantity of loops performed will be determined by race division. Along the course, athletes will have to ride on all types of terrain ranging from forest service access dirt roads to single track. This is a classic Colorado course with plenty of ascending and descending sections.

4) When performing a loop, athletes will be directed through a loop lane. When athletes come into the finish line, they must go through the finish lane. Athletes finishing in the "loop lane" will not be recognized as finished. Only when athletes cross over the finish line in the finish lane will their time be stopped and recorded

5) The course will be marked prior to the race and it is recommended to ride the course prior to race day. Signs will be set up to direct the course and marshals will be placed in tricky areas.
