Race Across the West
Jun

to Jun 16

Race Across the West

  • Santa Rita Dr Durango, CO, 81301 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Race Across the West (RAW) was started in 2008 to offer a race longer than 500 miles and to help bridge the mileage gap to RAAM. It has since evolved into an epic race in its own right. It is the second longest RAAM qualifier in the USA and draws racers from around the world.

 

RAW follows the first 930 miles of the RAAM course, from Oceanside, CA to Durango, CO and starts alongside the RAAM solo racers.  Traversing some of the most beautiful country in the west, RAW leaves the beach in Oceanside, climbs the Coastal Range and the drops into the scorching desert.  After crossing the deserts of California and Arizona, racers begin a gradual climb into the mountains surrounding Flagstaff, AZ and eventually into the Rocky Mountains. The race finishes on the Animas River in the cycling mecca of Durango, CO.

 

There is no other qualifier that crosses four states, offers the diversity in terrain and climate and races alongside the Solo RAAM racers.  RAW is the perfect race to test your mettle or hone your skills for racing RAAM.

We have partnered with local parties to develop events in Colorado and support the regional SWES.  There are no fees, no prizes, but all attempts will be made to record your finish time in comparison to others (please cooperate here!).   In addition your mileage and time will need to be kept and reported by you as a way to make sure you followed the route as much as reasonably possible.  The goal is to finish these challenges and you set your own pace.  A start time and route is provided here and it is up to the participant to understand the route and also have full responsibility for their navigation and well being.   These are not group rides – they are solo efforts, although some people might do these as rides with friends or even other riders they meet at the start, along the route, or even before hand through the use of the SWES Email list.

Abajo Enduro (Blue Mtn Enduro)

This epic two-day, three stage enduro takes place in a hidden enclave of Utah's best kept secret we call the Abajo Mountains of San Juan County, overlooking the Bears Ears National Monument.

https_%2F%2Fcdn.evbuc.com%2Fimages%2F33944280%2F120448856025%2F1%2Foriginal.jpg

If Southeastern Utah has you thinking desert, this enduro will give you a whole new perspective. With Monticello as the basecamp, you will be shuttled to each stage and in turn descend through pine, fir, aspen, and eventually red rock country. You will encounter double and single track, wicked fast flowy descents, and tech gnar. With only 50 racer slots, make sure you register early! You can expect a hot race!

Stages to be announced May 2018.

This event is placed to maximize the viewing please of the fall color change in the Southwest corner of the state and to showcase all the trails that Purgatory Ski area has been building for the past couple of years.

Registration packages will include several different options. Participants will be able to purchase different event packages to maximize all three days or just a day pass for each day. We will also be offering camping passes for tent camping, car camping, and R.V. camping. Purgatory also has a wide variety of lodging options for hotels and condos.

This event does not have a maximum number associated with it, however, the backcountry shuttling sucks.

It’s back! Last held in 2015, FLC’s popular annual Fall Blaze Bicycle Tour is back on the road!

This year’s tour kicks off on Saturday, September 29, with a cannon blast and a police escort. All three ride options are followed by a party on campus.

The Fall Blaze is not a race -- it's a chance for FLC community members, supporters, friends, alumni, students, staff, and anyone else who just loves to ride to enjoy a fun and safe scenic group tour through the autumn colors of southwestern Colorado – all while supporting the student athletes on the nationally ranked Skyhawks cycling team.

The Fall Blaze is open to cyclists of all skill levels and abilities, offering tour options of 37, 60, and 100 miles. All three fully-supported rides set off from campus and include food and aid stations, support vehicles, and a party at the finish line back in the center of campus.

All proceeds benefit the Fort Lewis College Cycling Scholarship, awarded to men’s and women’s cycling team members with at least a 2.50 GPA and who are also active in the community. Awards range from $500 to $1,000.

Come join us on a cycling adventure to remember while becoming a part of the FLC cycling family!

Tricia Memory Ride (Group riding the iron horse in memory)

23161093_129748041022715_7212518793258467328_n.jpg

A group of riders will be riding to Silverton in memory of Tricia and I am fundraising in dedication to her for The Grief Center which is a lifeline for our community, supporting bereaved children, adults, and families.

Coach Tricia passed this past Fall and through this process, her friend and fellow coach Sarah Tescher, saw a need to provide people with Grief Counseling.  She met Judy Austin who is the executive director of The Grief Center of Southwest Colorado which is a network of bereavement specialists who donate their time to helping children, teens, and adults work thru loss.  They are a local non-for-profit which serve the surrounding communities and are often called in for group counseling, community programs as well as individual support free of charge.  This local non-profit is invaluable to our community that has seen so much loss.

20589742_1089258834544706_5210973130339647488_n.jpg

The Iron Horse Bicycle Classic has donated 10 entries to this campaign for 10 individuals to ride in memory of Trisha.  Nan Cresto, Tina Ooley, Abbey Shepard, Jes Reed, Sarah Warren, Cara Kropp, Mark Williamson, Sarah Tescher are part of these ten riders who will then fundraise the minimum their entry fee but ideally more!  The ten riders will then ride to Silverton in memory of Tricia but also they are supporting a much-needed service to the community thru the Grief Center of Southwest.

Zia Town Series! (Buckley Eliminator)

 It's quite the festival with push bikers all the way up to kitted out pros. Here's a rundown of what to expect for next Wednesday's racing:

Buckley Eliminator Wed May 23

Registration: $10 5:00-6:15, Buckley Park, across from Durango Cyclery

Race Description: This race bouts 4 racers in a head to headlap around the course. The top two racers from each round continue on to the next. There is a last chance qualifier for racers that are eliminated early to come back and steal the overall win.

Racing begins around 6:15 with a seeding run for each racer. Holeshot primes from RGP's!!!

Volunteer Spots

Registration: 5:30-6:30: 1-2 people

Seeding Timers: 6:30-6:45: Grady, 4-5 others

Results: 6:30-end: Grady, 1-2 others

And don't forget an extra $5 to enter yourself into the drawing to win 1 of two Trek bikes or a signed Jersey from some dudes named Howard and Payson... Heard they're pretty quick.

Categories: Racers can choose between A and B categories. Start times will be based on what time you arrive at the start, NOT based on category- We are recommending A racers arrive at the start early so they can start early.

(No longer will endurance races be held exclusively in the spring, and enduro in the fall. Instead, we will mix it up each week. Additionally, new this season, we will have two different omniums. The first will be a one-day points based omnium for combined results at the Purg race. The second omnium will cover the Fall season and points will be ranked on a racer's best 3 out of 4 races.

A week before each event you will receive an email with registration times, locations and race info as well as a list of volunteer needs for the race. You are not required to volunteer but it always helps! Please note that all town races will have a $10 entry fee. And a friendly reminder, this series costs DEVO money to run, so please help support a program that is unique to our community!

Finally, a big thanks to all the sponsors of DEVO and this series: Zia Taqueria, Durango Urgent Care, Mercy Sports Medicine, and Fort Lewis College.)
