Course Description: The race will start a couple hundred yards up the summer access road from the base of Tiehack lift. Racers will head out on the double track and road of the Oregon Trail before joining the main summer road on Buttermilk. Continue climbing the summer road to the point where the Government Trail crosses it. Turn left onto the Government Trail single track and descend down through the infamous root section. Racers will return to the Tiehack work road taking a left back towards the start line. This race has it all – sweet single track, ripping downhills, and plenty of climbing to test your fitness.

Cancellation policy: PLEASE DO NOT PHONE OR TEXT THE RACE DIRECTOR FOR RACE CANCELLATION INFORMATION. In the event of inclement weather on race day, the Aspen Cycling Club Board of Directors will communicate with the Race Director to determine the Club’s ability to operate a race that is reasonably safe for competitors, and, for mountain bike races, preserves the integrity of local trails. All racers should assume that a final decision will be made at the start line by the race director. However, when possible, the Board of Directors will alert racers of a race cancellation prior to the start by emailing the Club email group, and posting on the website and the ACC Facebook page by 5pm.
