Registration for the 2014 Iron Horse Bicycle Classic opens TOMORROW, December 3, 2013, at 9:00 a.m. The event will be held Memorial Day Weekend, May 24-26, 2014. We have updated the website – ironhorsebicycleclassic.com – and we are excited to get things rolling for a great weekend of riding and racing in Durango. All the great events are back, (with a few changes): The Citizens Tour presented by McDonald’s, Durango to Silverton Road Race presented by Coca Cola, Quarter Horse to Purgatory, Sunday Downtown Events presented by Morehart-Murphy, East Animas Time Trial powered by BP, Cross Country Race presented by Mountain Bike Specialists, Kids Races fueled by SPRITE, and the Alpine Bank Push Bike Park. Whew, that’s a lot!!
Highlights and changes for the 2014 event. Complete information can be found at the event website – please review the below and the website.
Online registrations are provided by iamATHLETE – a great new partner for the event. A link to online registration is available through the event website.
The Citizen’s Tour presented by McDonalds will be a timed event, again in 2014. An increase in the field limit for 2014 – 2600 riders!
The original – Durango to Silverton Road Race presented by Coca Cola is limited to the first 200 racers – and ONLY two categories available – A Men and A Women
NEW – Sunday’s Downtown Events presented by Morehart-Murphy include a few new activities – a Veteran Team Relay Challenge, a cyclocross criterium and the favorites – expanded Kids Races fueled by SPRITE and competitive crits for men and women, and the popular (and fun) the Cruzer Crit.
For those climbers in the group – we have created the Mountain Horse Tour. You will start at Durango Mountain Resort @ 10:00 a.m. and finish in Silverton – this shortens the traditional ride – but is the hardest and most satisfying part!
We have greatly expanded the commemorative official event merchandise for 2014, from riding gear to casual wear for men and women, we are also offering kids T’s with a cool new train logo. Stock up, we will ship it to you well in advance of the event.
Again, registration opens tomorrow, December 3, 2013 at 9:00 a.m. Check out the website for complete details and register early and do not miss out on the fun in Durango!
We hope to see you in 2014!
