Start Times: This race is a time trial, and you will be assigned a start time when you check in the day of the race. Please be aware of the Aspen Cycling Club Time Trial Start procedure: Competitors must arrive in the start queue no later than 30 seconds before their start. Failure to meet this requirement will mean a forfeiture of start position and relegation to end of start list. All time trial racers are required to start from a full stop (if race officials/marshals/volunteers are available, each racer will be held for a time trial start). If no holder is available, each racer must start with one foot on ground.
Warm-Up: Please do not warm up on the race course after 6:00pm. After that time, please ride toward Woody Creek on River Road. Be respectful of traffic and property during your warmup. Do not block cars, and do not urinate in public. If caught urinating, you will be disqualified from the evening’s race. Plan accordingly.
Parking Info: Very limited parking is available at Jaffe Park and near Woody Creek Tavern.
Volunteer: To sign up to Marshal for this race or any race this season go to the Marshal Sign-Up
Race Day Sign-In: Everyone must sign-in at each race regardless of membership level. Race day sign-in will take place from 5:00 PM to 5:45 PM at the start of the race (unless specifically noted otherwise). Race numbers are issued for each discipline for the entire season. Bring your number to every race – lest you have to wear the handwritten Number Of Shame! Race day entry fees are free for juniors and full members, $20 for non-members.

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.
