Powerade Pinnacle Mountain Bike Series
This 5-week mountain bike race series encourages competitors to ride the Downhill bike park trails on Wednesday evenings during twilight. Created in 1998 by Crested Butte Mountain Resort (CBMR), the popular race series is geared for fun and competition, from beginner to expert riders. The races consist of varying lengths and difficulty to challenge riders of all abilities in either Enduro or Downhill disciplines. Competitors enjoy a post-ride awards party after each race with a cold LandShark Lager or Coca-Cola, and awesome prizes at Butte 66. Downhill competitors also receive a complimentary twilight ticket for that day. Races take place on Wednesday evenings at 5:45 p.m. Registration is $10 per race and will be held at the CBMR Rental Shop from 4 PM until 5:15 PM. Pump Track lap races geared towards ages 6 and under will also be held at 5:15 p.m. at the pump track in the Base Area.
