The fourth annual "40 in the Fort" Endurance Mountain Bike Race will be held on June 28, 2014 at Lory State Park in Fort Collins. Come experience one of the Front Range's toughest endurance mountain bike races. Thousands of feet of lung-busting, leg-searing climbs and grin inducing descents make this race a great test of your physical endurance, mental toughness and mountain bike skills. The race has been won by Fort Collins riders the first 3 times, will this be the year an outsider takes the prize? Bring your friends and family, and join us for the after party and awards.
The individual race is 40 miles made up of two 20 mile laps. Each lap has nearly 4,500 feet of climbing. Race divisions include Open, Sport and Singlespeed with men's and women's under and over 40 year old groups. Individual entry fee is $75.
Just for Fun team racers do one 20 mile lap each, ridden simultaneously, with results based upon their combined times. Race divisions include Men's, Women's and Co-Ed. Team entry fee is $100.
