2013 40 in the Fort Course Map & Description


The third annual "40 in the Fort" Endurance Mountain Bike Race will be held on June 29, 2013 at Lory State Park in Fort Collins. Come experience on of the Front Range's toughest mountain bike races. 40 miles, nearly 9000 vertical feet of lung-busting, leg-searing climbs and grin inducing descents. Once again we will be holding the regular two lap 40 mile individual race and the Just for Fun team race where a team of two riders ride one 20 mile lap each simultaneously.  Either race is a great test of your physical endurance, mental toughness and mountain bike skills.

The race benefits Overland Mountain Bike Club, the premier mountain bike advocacy organization for Northern Colorado and Southern Wyoming.
