The Sand Creek mountain bike race series has long been a part of mountain biking in the Colorado Springs area. The official series name has changed over the years based on sponsors. For 2014 it is once again the Ascent Cycling Series.
The series has been running for 24 years with a couple year hiatus. The 100th race will be on July 19th at Cheyenne Mountain State Park. I’m pretty sure I’ve done well over half of the races.
This year’s series is 5 races with 4 Wednesday evenings and a Saturday race. Below is the schedule
- June 4 – Palmer Park Race
- June 18 – Bear Creek Terrace
- July 9 – Palmer Park
- July 19 (Saturday) – Cheyenne Mountain State Park. 50+/- mile race with fat bike category.
- July 30 – Bear Creek Terrace
