Spread the word – hope to see you there!11-Hermosa-Off-Road-Classic-Flyer

Back for it’s 5th year the Hermosa Creek Off-Road Classic mountain bike race presented by the Fort Lewis College Cycling Team on Saturday July 30th! Come one, come all, to ride the high country trail that made Durango famous and have goods times with other riders at the post-ride BBQ/Campout.

Starting at the Lower Hermosa Trailhead there is a 38-mile course for Elite Men and Women and Singlespeed A, a choice of either the 38 or 20 mile courses for the Cat. 1 Men and Women (3-5 hours) and 20 miles for Singlespeed B, Cat. 2 Cat. 3 and junior racers. Race sponsors have kicked in some great prizes – cash for the top 3 Elite Men/ Women and great products for the other classes! The singlespeed category also doubles as the unofficial 4 Corners Singlespeed Championships. Nick Gould and Sarah Tescher are the defending champs from 2010.

For not-all-the-time racers, the festival atmosphere with many of the riders camping at the upper trailhead both Friday and Saturday night’s is fun for all. The icing on the cake will be the post-race BBQ hosted by the Durango Cyclery (food and entertainment) held at the Upper Hermosa Trailhead.

Thanks to all of our sponsors for donating the $3000+ cash/prize list: Durango Coca-Cola, The Irish Embassy, Zia Taqueria, SRAM, King Cage, Bread, Continental Tires, Second Ave. Sports, the Chip Peddler, Republic of Doom, Ska Brewing and Boure Sportswear.
