Here is a great calendar of Colorado area 2018 mountain bike events.

  • RXC Junior Represents the USA in the UCI MTB World Championships (9/17/2019)

    After finishing 2nd at the 2019 Cross Country MTB National Championships held at Winter Park in July, our own RXC junior, Robbie Day, was chosen by Team USA to represent the country to race in the UCI Mountain Bike World Championships in Quebec, Canada last month. Bicycling.com called Mont-Sainte-Anne “one of the most technical World Cup venues… so expect plenty of crashes, even in the elite field.”

    As a newcomer, Robbie had to start in 68 out of a 72 person field of the world’s fastest kids and ended up in 44th place!

    Robbie is a junior racing for Evergreen HS this fall and RXC is proud to have him as a team member.

    PLEASE consider following him on Instagram @robada2018.  He needs more followers and the kid could use some sponsors!

  • Roll Massif Crooked Gravel and Sunrise to Sunset (8/23/2019)

    CROOKED GRAVEL RACE

    Brian, Matt, Tony, Sean and Ted

    Gravel riding/racing is rapidly gaining popularity on the cycling scene.  It typically is a long ride on gravel roads with 2 or 3 KOM/QOM timed segments.

    On Saturday August 10th up in Winter Park was a 65 mile course with 2 KOM/QOM’s and a 93 mile course with 3 KOM/QOM’s.  It was a rainy day but still lots of fun!

    Matt Kondler, Brian France, Tony Romagna, Sean Pieper and Ted Benning participated in the gravel rides.

    SUNRISE TO SUNSET

    This Roll Massif ALSO featured a 12-hour solo and team MTB race, “Sunrise to Sunset” Carla Hammer DOMINATED the solo event with a WIN on a muddy course. and Jen Barbour/Pete Thomas WON the co-ed team category.

  • RXC Juniors and the Rattler Race Series Finale (8/17/2019)

    We had 11 RXC Juniors at Bear Creek Lake Park on Wednesday for the last race of the Rattler Series. Another HOT HOT night at the park but the kids hung in there and did great.

    Jenna Ceraso was on the podium for the first time and Zack Footer will be on many more! Robbie Day crushed the open category. Great to see him before he heads to Canada to competed in the World MTB Championships!!

    We got some good action shots of the kids on their second lap.

  • RXC Juniors at Winter Park (8/4/2019)

    Sam Hill

    Our last official RXC junior practice took place last week, but these kids still have a few races left before the high school MTB season official begins.

    Yesterday, four of them took on a very challenging course in Winter Park and did fantastic!  All were on the podium.   After passing me, I caught up to Sam Hill, ONLY because he had a mechanical and had to do some quick work.  We got him back out there and he still WON his category.   Hats off to Jay Landers who had a major mechanical and had to hit up some campers for tools to get it fix.  Sophie Hill and Alyssa Leifer were on the stop step in their categories.

    THANKS TO ALL THE RXC ADULTS FOR MAKING THEM FEEL WELCOME!

  • Winter Park – 2019 Race #1 (6/11/2019)
    Racer X in Winter Park!

    Saturday the grueling and often dreaded Hill Climb returned to the Winter Park MTB Series.  The weather cooperated and the road was dry!  The racing conditions were optimal.

    Racer X Cycling jerseys were dominant on the road to the top!

    Our new Junior team performed well with Sam Hill and Coleman Ryan both finishing second in their categories!

    Coleman Ryab
    Sam Hill

    Kristi Leinen was the sole female singlespeed racer and her result was combined with the men. As if riding a singlespeed isn’t already demanding; she deserved podium recognition! We are working to fix this in the future.

    The TEAM results are not posted yet, but Team A had 5 podium finishes! There is a pretty solid chance that Team A is leading the standings.

    Vincent Davis
    Carla Hammer
    Bob Campbell

    Congratulations to all the RXC racers that endured the climb to the top!

  • Gunnison Growler (6/7/2019)

    RACE RECAP – Eight of your teammates competed at The Growler, in Gunnison last weekend on what was an exceptionally tough course, as usual, but this year the race followed the “more technical” direction with Rattlesnake, Becks and The Notch as the finish. 

    Jeff Pool

    Christian Williss, Keith Collins and Darren Robinson all finished in the top 20 in their age cat and Jonathan Cox was top 10 in his.  Kristi Leiden, our only RXC lady rode single speed!!  Congrats to everyone who raced!

    LAST BUT NOT LEAST – Sean P. Malone’s son, a future RXC junior, I hope, raced the Micro Growler and stood on the top step!

    Future RXC Junior!!

    Saturday was a great day for Winter Park Epic Singletrack Series Race #2; the Valley Point-to-Point.

    Many racers stopped on the D2 descent to check on one of our RXC racers that had a bad crash.

    I’m happy to report that, after being airlifted to St. Anthony’s, Troy Lyons is home and doing OK. The team wishes him a speedy recovery!

    Even with this pause for many racers mid-race,  RXC had a stellar day!  Many, many podiums and the biggest news of the day is that Team A and Team B scored the SAME number of points at 287!!!  Team A is certain to maintain top ranking in the Series with Team B making a solid run for the podium!  How COOL would it be to have 2 teams on the season podium!!!

  • Rain on the east slope, hard racing on the West slope for the mountain RXC riders (5/20/2018)

    The Battle of the Bear race was postponed with no new date yet set.
    For those on the team that signed up for the Epic Rides Grand Junction Off-road, it was a beautiful day to race. The race was fast, the course was challenging and conditions tough. Bob Cambell, Keith Collins, Lisa and Vincent Davis made the trip out to race. All entered the Grand Junction Off-Road – 40 Grand

    Bob was having bad luck with his wheel, destroying one pre-riding the course and then having a spoke stick through his rim tape during the race. He was in good position but the result is that he walked out. Keith said he had a C+ ride commenting how tough the course was this year. It was really dry and dusty which made for poor grip and the fast snaking technical trails. Keith finished 8th in the 45+ at 4:30. Lisa and Vincent rode their tandem. They (we) had a solid race 15min behind Keith with no mishaps and a time of 4:15. This would have put Lisa as 1st open women and Vincent 11th masters men. Full results here LINK

    Lisa and Vincent got a cool write-up in The Daily Sentinal. and more on their blog MTB Tandem Coach.

    If you have not done this race you should consider it. Its a cool scene in downtown Grand Junction. The pros race a fat tire crit Friday night and Saturday night is a Music festival.

    Special thanks to our sponsors, The Feed helping keep us feed, Big Ring cycles which just had there reopened.
    and all our other sponsors.

     

     

     

     

  • 18hr of Fruita Race report (5/11/2018)

    RXC sent two teams to the 18hr of Fruita,
    THIS ONE’S FOR WALDO; Peter R, Kim, Ted, Art, Sean, Rob.
    SPEED RACERS OLDER BROTHER; Bob, Keith, Vincent, Christine, Jon, Peter F.
    For most, this was the first time to race or ride around Highline Lake State Park. The event, trail and atmosphere was awesome! The park has great green grass camping under large shade trees. This is something to put on your calendar for next year.

    The course is a 7.5 mile twisty trail around the lake with 3 short climbs which makes for a fun and fast course. Even with all the twisting, the average speeds of the fastest racers was over 15mph. The Start is at midnight Friday/Saturday which makes for a really interesting first lap.

    RXC entered two 6-8 person coed Geezer teams. This was a mistake in hindsight as we had a “slow” team and “fast” team but it put us in the situation where we where racing each other. Our slow team had the speed to win the category and our fast team won the event overall, check out the results.

    Long events like this are always fun and as you near the last few hours, our team started doing a lot of math trying to figure out how many laps we needed to get in.

    Speed Racers older brother wanted to get in 34 laps. It was close, Keith C. headed out for the last lap needing to do a sub 31min lap. Having taken everything off his bike he headed out and turned in his fastest lap of the race with a sub 30min lap and coming in with only a couple minutes to spare.

     

     

     

    Here are some photos and a short video.

    Bob on last lap

  • Winter Park: Team commitments needed (5/9/2018)

    HELLO MOUNTAIN BIKE RACERS!!!   Since Mountain Bike racing season is upon us, we are now evaluating our TEAM presence at Winter Park (WP).

    We have enough talented racers on the team to not only finish on the team podium for the season but to unseat Avout from their recent dominance.
    WHAT WE NEED is your solid commitment too race. The rosters can’t change throughout the season (more below).  Additionally, I’m looking for someone to help out at the WP races: coordinating our pit area, bringing team tent, etc.  The schedule and team rules are below.

    WINTER PARK:
    Race 1: Saturday, June 9 – Granby Ranch XC (New! No more hill climb..) This is a fun 2-lap race up/down the mountain for pro/experts and is 20.6 miles. 13.1 miles for Sport/Beginner
    Race 2: Saturday, June 23 – XC Super Loop course TBD
    Race 3: Saturday, July 7 – Race Rendezvous
    Race 4: Saturday, July 21 – Elk Creek XC
    Race 5: Saturday, August 45 – Devil’s Thumb Ranch  Point to Point    NEW!!!!!!!
    Race 6: Saturday, August 18 – King of the Rockies
    Team Captain: Ted Benning

    WP TEAM RULES:

    • Team rosters must be submitted by the team captain by Friday, June 8, 2018.
    • Please include the following: first name, last name, year of birth and racing class.  Teams can be made up of both men and women in any skill or age category.
    • Once a rider is submitted for a team, they cannot change to another team or be dropped from the team. A rider may be a member of only one team.
    • Team points will be calculated by adding the individual race points of the 6 highest racers of each team with all races counting towards the total.  A perfect score would be 300 points per race (50×6)  and 1800 points for the series (six 300-point races)

    RXC WP Team Strategy:  I will submit team rosters for the SEASON by June 8. These CANNOT be changed. Also; you CANNOT be added to any team rosters AFTER June 8. So it is important to commit only to races that you know you are showing up for. I put teams together so that we are at “maximum strength” for each race. 6 racers out of 10 per team score for that race.
    Registration info: http://www.epicsingletrack.com/registration.html (NOTE: as of May 8, the registration site is not up yet..)

    ACTION TO TAKE:  Please contact Ted Benning with your race plans so I can get you placed on teams. Register for your races. Also please contact Ted with any questions.

  • Team clothing order (Spring 2018) (5/9/2018)

    RXC Team Members have expressed interest in purchasing some more RXC custom clothing, we decided to open our team store for a 3rd and final round.

    Comments regarding this 3rd store:

    • We added the Offroad All Mountain Baggy Shorts, available both in men’s and women’s cuts. These baggies are a slim, tailored, XC short. If you get the same size as your team bibs/shorts these will fit snug on you. If you prefer a more generously fitting baggy, go up one size. They come with an internal elastic waistband with rubber buttons so you can snug up the waist if they are a little big.
    • We also added the Aero Race Gloves in the Women’s FAST pink accents. Very stylish and a must have! Note: we need a minimum of 5 pairs, better 10. Order away!
    • We also need a minimum of 5 pairs for the Men’s Aero Race Gloves, please.
    • The listed inline (non-custom) Cuore items are being offered at 25% off regular MSRP. Good time to jump on this deal.
    A note on fitting Cuore clothing:
    If you are not sure what sizing to order and want to pay a visit to the Cuore office in Boulder, please send an email to Mike at mgoldberg@cuore.ch and he will set up an appointment for you to come in and try on clothing. For any other questions send me an email at clothing@racerxcycling.com 🙂
