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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.org. Please support this event as racing for a cause has never
made more sense.
