The town of Fraser, Colorado sits just outside of Winter Park and is right in the middle of countless trails.
With the Colorado Freeride Festival on hiatus this year due to massive construction at the Winter Park resort, it’s perfect timing for a new festival in the area.
The Fraser MTB Fest will hold the USA Cycling Colorado State dual slalom championships and a short track cross-country race for all ages and abilities. Cash prizes will be handed out to pro racers over the weekend.
The short track XC course is a mile long loop with multiple climbs and descents. The number of laps will depend on the category racers are in.
Aside from racing, the festival will include other bike activities, local artists, bike brands, local businesses, food trucks, and craft beer.
