Chocolate Bunny coming to Purg!

 The Rocky Mountain Race Series (RMRS) is a 5 race mountain bike series, including Cross Country (XC), Downhill (DH), Short Track (STXC), Slalom (SL). All information for the events are at www.chocolatebunnyproductions.com 
The RMES is not a USAC cycling sanctioned series. Therefore, no USAC license is required. Age categories start at 8 years of age and range up to the 50+ categories.

On behalf of Chocolate Bunny Productions Purgatory is excited to be a part of the first annual Rocky Mountain Race Series. The Rocky Mountain Race Series will kick-off May 2018 at Pajarito Bike Park and feature one event per month through August 2018. The series will include downhill, cross country, short track and dual slalom offering categories for juniors ages 8 to 18, in three-year age groups and 10-year age groups for adults, in both endurance and gravity disciplines.

The final race in the Rocky Mountain Series will be held at our bike park August 17th – August 19th! Series final points will be tallied off of four of the five events. You will be allowed to drop one race if you attend all five events. Race season passes and individual race registration is available below:
