Colorado High Country 1200, PBP ... and more!

July's inaugural Colorado High Country 1200k went well! Lots of rider enthusiasm, great support by our esteemed volunteers, and many happy faces at the finish line. 

Some stats:
  • 7 climbs over 9,000 ft. (3 over 10,000 ft.)
  • 30,000 - 35,000 ft. of climbing
  • 48 starters (+2 pre-riders)
  • 36 finishers (+2 pre-riders)
  • 75% finishing rate
  • 85% riders from out of state
  • 4 foreign riders (Canada and Finland)
  • 21 hard-working volunteers!
Congratulations, riders and many thanks to the volunteers!  You can find photos, stories, rider finishing data, and more on the High Country Web pages

Maybe a ride to put on your radar?

Next up for the 1200k's, on the weekend of August 20-21: Paris-Brest-Paris and the Alaska Big Wild Ride.  Local riders will be represented at both.  Some of these riders have already done a 1200k this year to warm up!

Bonne route à tous!
