The Iron Horse appreciates the support the local community has provided over 41 years. In recognition of that support we are giving locals access to registration a few hours ahead. Last year the IHBC sold out in a matter of days, some race categories within 13 hours! This is a great chance to “get in” early.
The IHBC will be hosting a “Locals Only” registration party Friday November 30th, 2012 5-8pm at Mountain Bike Specialists at 949 Main Ave, Durango. This event will be held only a few short hours before we open registration to the world at midnight, Dec 1.
We will have multiple workstations set up to allow “locals” to stop in and register for the 2013 event to be held May 25-27, 2013. Please bring your credit card because the registration will be done online, and only completed with a credit card. No checks or cash.
Here is the deal: You have to register in person, with a valid ID. You cannot register other people, unless they are under 18(minor). No exceptions. Please do not ask to sign up your spouse, friend, etc… Our liability waiver is part of the registration process and must be electronically signed by the person standing there, who matches the ID.
Beverages, appetizers, and chocolate provided by Bread, Steamworks and Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory.
Regular registration opens at Midnight Dec 1, 2012 if you cannot make this event.
Please check out our new website at ironhorsebicycleclassic.com for event details including the fact we are going to time the McDonald’s Citizen Tour (must start with Train at 8:30am to receive course time) and we have made changes to the Road Race categories based on 2012 feedback. Additionally we have new merchandise offerings, our best yet.
We hope to see you November 30th and thank you for the many years of support.
