2013 Battle the Bear Race Down Mt Carbon

Mt Carbon Descent

~ Sunday October 4th ~

Registration is available on-site or at Giant Cycling World. See registration page for details.

Event Highlights:

The Start/Finish and Race Venue will be at Pelican Point again as it was last year.  The intimate venue and Pit Zone offers a fantastic setting for hot racing action. There will be a sponsors chalet with product sampling, and a Kidz Zone with jumpy house and our free Warriors Kids Race.

With the later date this year and tired legs from a long season of racing, we’ve shortened the endurance race to 50 miles, and moved the start back an hour to 9:00 so you can sleep in! It will be our Series Finals, a celebration of fall, and the crowning of our Series Champions.

Get into Giant Cycling World, 7301 S. Santa Fe Drive, Littleton, 80120 – 303-703-1700, and take advantage of their racer specials.  They are offering 50% off their Pro Service, 25% off all other labor, and 15% off parts!  Also, can pick-up registration form there up until race day with no late fee!

Note there is a $5/vehicle fee for race parking.
