Iron Horse Bicycle Classic this Weekend

  |   Uncategorized

Its back, IHBC weekend, possibly the sweetest week to be a cyclist if your a Durangoan. People come in from all over the country to race the train and conquer goals. Us at Devo are really excited to have the mountain bike race back for its 3rd year since the drought of the mid 2000’s. SO get ready for action starting friday night with your last chance to register for the cross country, criterium and time trail. Reg lasts from 530-730pm and will be at Buckley park in downtown Durango. The road race is saturday morning and if your not racing of volunteering, then get up on the passes and watch some inspired action as they head to Silverton. Then sunday is all day criterium road racing and mountain biking that starts and finishes from downtown. All you Jr Devo’s out there make sure to hit the early am kids racing on main street as it is always tons of fun. The junior mountain bike races and age group categories lead up to the pro race around 2pm, where Devo’s Sweet Elite team will have 3 men and 3 women in the pro race, as well as Ska/Zia-Trek’s 2 junior athletes who also ride on the Devo U19 team. Should be good! The pro criterium will wrap things up with the pro men and women at the same time as the mtb. Wow. And to wrap it all up, the road time trial out the valley takes place on monday for the dedicated trailists. Get your cowbells buffed and we’ll see ya at the races!
