Mt Carbon Descent

Event Highlights:

The Finish and Expo location are next to the lake again under the shade of the cottonwoods.  Enjoy the green grass and cool waters of the lake for a post race soak of tired legs.  Spectators and racers alike will enjoy the hot racing action at this fun venue. Bring your noise makers and join the party. There will be an industry expo with product sampling, and a Kidz Zone with jumpy house, games, and our Warriors Kids Race. Celebrate spring racing in Colorado with the family at this annual ritual of off-road fun.
