More Racing in Salida this next Sunday, Jun21st!!
FIBark the longest running whitewater festival is now hosting a mountain bike race.
Sunday, June 21st (The day after the Wildflower Rush Cross Country Event in Crested Butte)
Sponsored by Keen Footwear
This inaugural race will be held partly on the just constructed buffed
out singletrack behind S-mountain and the existing technical climbs
and descents of the Cottonwood and Sand Dunes trails. This is an
amazing 6 mile loop and perfect for a cross country race. The FIBark
mountain bike race will be a great mix of gravel road climbs, rolling
single track and technical single track descents. There’s about 1000
feet of climbing per lap. Beginners will stay off the technical parts,
sports and Experts will race the long course. It’s mountain bike
racing like it was meant to be! Course maps at http://www.fibark.net.
