VAIL ULTRA 100

VAIL ULTRA 100


If you think you are the hardest, baddest rider in your town, then maybe you need a new challenge. How about the Vail Ultra 100, a 100-mile mountain bike race with 13,000 feet of climbing that takes racers from the town of Vail, Colorado, 50 miles west over Red and White Mountain, Muddy Pass and towards Castle Peak. Racers then
retrace their tracks through the White River National Forest and back to Vail. More than 230 riders have registered for the third annual running of this huge event, on Saturday August 19, 2000. There is a 13-hour time limit and all riders who finish within that time space will receive a custom, sublimated, Vail Ultra 100 race jersey and race medal. All registered racers will receive a race t-shirt, goody bag and pre-race pasta feed. Medical check-in and course briefing/conservation symposium will precede the race on Friday, August 18, at the Vail Cascade Hotel race headquarters. The four-star Vail Cascade Resort has discounted racer room rates available for only $99 a night. For more information, or to volunteer (about 100 are needed) for the event, call (970) 476-6797 or check out www.vailultra100.com
