12 Hours of Snowmass - USAC Pro UET Series Final

Posted by: Shannon Boffeli |March 14, 2012 2:01 AM

Nat Ross and Pro Bike Center announce the return of 12 Hours of Snowmass.This year the race is Saturday, July 21st and will be the series finale for the USA Cycling Pro Ultra Endurance Tour.   This year there is a $2,500 cash purse. 

For complete information check out USA Cycling’s website at http://www.usacycling.org/prouet. Riders can come race with the big boys and girls as they chase the title and cash purse. Pua Mata, 2011 Pro UET Champion, stated, "There is nothing like racing at one of your favorite places. Snowmass is going to be awesome and I am super amped to be part of it!  Come play!” 

The twelve hour mountain bike race is a fun race for solo and endurance teams and is a benefit for a local non-profit organization, Aspen Youth Center.  

Race categories include:  solo, duo, trio, juniors, Clydesdales and open classes. The intermediate 7-mile course has great climbs, descents and plenty of single track to keep everybody smiling.   This year we are adding a new category Junior/Pro Trio where two juniors will team up with a Pro Mountain Bike Racer.  Juniors who want to take part in this category like those whom participate in (NICA) National Interscholastic Cycling Association, will be able to write a 200-word essay to natross@me.com on why they want to team up with a Pro and how they would benefit from this experience.  They will be able to race for free while fundraising for their team’s entry.

Anyone can race for FREE by fundraising as little as $100.00 for the Aspen Youth Center. For details about racing for free and fundraising, please go to the event website at www.12hoursofsnowmass.com or call the Pro Bike Center at (970) 390-9730.  Participants can earn a free entry and also receive great prizes for their contribution. Racers can also go directly to www.active.comto register as a fundraiser! 

Aspen Youth Center provides after school, summer and outreach programs for over 1,200 youth in the Roaring Fork Valley.  For more information visit www.aspenyouthcenter.orgPlease support this event as racing for a cause has never made more sense.
